Still a Under Going Project: (still not good enough needs alot of work!)
I have been thinking this up for quite a few years now when I was a kid the first wolf pelt I ever seen was owned by my aunt who had a grey and black Taxidermy wolf headdress. I had the idea. The whole idea going to Taxidermy School was to learn how to make these..............load and behold I became a "Plushidermist" and not the "Rogue Taxidermist" as I dreamed when I started this.
The idea was definitely in mind when I was into the R.U.N. years back and dreamed to actually go through with it but it just never happened......... So this is actually considered a R.U.N. Headress.....Although I never actually gone through with the idea it came up not too long ago when I was Chatting with a friend and realized I had all I needed to do was get my ass up and actually do it! After all everything I needed at the time was already in The house, I already had the form, the wolf (wolves) and neither where selling so I picked a wolf and started the work.
I did not like the form I had, the nose to me was way too bulky and square so I shaved and sanded half of it down to define different features in the face and finished them off with thin clay. Not that it’s a natural look but this thing wasn’t intended to be 100% natural looking.
I was originally going to put this with the March Sale but I don’t think I’m going have it. Besides it won’t be done by then. I am really hoping I can bring this up to my tribe to see if any of them would be interested in this as a Native American Headdress for dancing. I think she would be best suited for that instead. Although we are the rabbit tribe I think Coyote is best suited for my people hahahaha a lot of them are Big Wolf totem scratchers. Naturally I’m a coyote……….and I’m pretty sure you can see why.
I will look forward to working on more of these! I hope everybody can Enjoy!!
PLEASE NOTE: I didn’t go to school for Photography, I went to school for Taxidermy! My pictures are not the best!
