Materials: Coyote skin, leather, acrylic paint

Description: This is a 'yote of a different color! He's a brilliant red, very much like a red fox in tone, with a lovely pelt. When I got him his legs were missing, and his poor muzzle had a big chunk missing out of the end. I stitched him back together, and he was happier not having a hole in his nose! He also wanted just a tiny bit of extra embellishment, so I did a bit of additional painting around his eyes.

He measures 55" from tip to tip, and he has straps to tie him on at the chin and waist/hips. he's a rather happy, good-natured spirit who has taken the rough spots in his life (and afterlife) in stride. He'd be a good dancing skin for dancers of all experience levels and abilities, though he has a fierce, protective streak, which would make him a good companion for journeying and other spiritual work.

I can also add details, such as my signature fangs, or other decor, for additional cost for materials and labor--customization is my specialty, so feel free to ask :) I guarantee the workmanship on all my masks and other headdresses, and should this ever need reshaping or other repair, I will do it free of charge!

I created my first full skin totem dance costume (which I still have!) in 2002, and have created many in the years since then. Not content with just a chin strap, I developed unique systems of straps to distribute the weight more evenly. This was not taught to me; rather, I have developed my techniques independently through trial and error, as well as years of skindancing myself. As with all my creations, this costume has been purified as a part of my shamanic practice and is ready for ritual work. Additional details such as teeth or decoration may be added at additional cost; just ask!

Please note shipping includes insurance and delivery confirmation.

***Animal parts may NOT be shipped outside the U.S.; please do not ask me to make an exception for you.***

The majority of my supplies are from secondhand sources, such as old fur and leather coats, or beads from old jewelry. Everything made with animal parts is given a full ritual purification according to my spiritual path. A portion of the proceeds is donated to nonprofit organizations such as the Defenders of Wildlife.
