I personally love making things out of clay and it's quite easy. For a skull I believe the best thing would be to get a small foam ball to act as the core of the head to keep the weight down and build the skull around it with an air dry clay. [I love the results and feel of Paperclay] To get the skull smooth you'll have to sand it, so make sure you get a sand-able clay], fill the indents/crack, sand again and repeat until your satisfied. You can then paint it [wipe off the clay with a damp cloth to remove the residue] and seal it.
A wooden dowel should work fine for the base of cane.
A halloween cane may be another option, but I personally find that often enough they look 'cheesy'....and your always more proud when its your own workmanship ^_^
To the original poster: I believe the chess piece cane may be fan art and not official. I only ever recall seeing his gold headed [I have no idea what to call it ><] in the manga, the Skull in the anime, and the cane that Finni broke which I believe had a diamond as the handel[?].
