This here is a real treat, and a major rarity for me. He's the first wolf I've ever worked with, and though he's not massive, he is certainly beautiful to behold! I have created this headdress as more than just a skin with some leather string tied to it: It is built to be functional, sturdy, and beautiful. You can also take pride in knowing that the wolf was not taken from the wild by means of hunting or trapping.


The wolf whose skin was used for this piece was stuck by a car up in Canada and sold to furrier in the USA which later went out of business. I got him at an auction in pretty rough shape: Several holes in his right flank and just behind one ear, as well as scrapes on his left side from where he fell onto the pavement after the impact had to be sewn up. Because he fell on his left side after being struck, most of the skin on that side of his face was smooshed together and the nose was pretty badly indented. Likewise, his ears were pretty mangled, so I had to rehydrate, treat, and re-shape the whole face over a hand-molded form in order to achieve the more lifelike appearance it has today. The process requires skill and patience.

Unfortunately, I was not able to fix all of the wolf's flaws. There are a few tiny bald spots on his ears and face, as well as some slightly weaker guard hairs under his left forearm, but these are hardly noticeable unless you're staring right at them.

Nonetheless, he has some of the softest, most luxurious fur of any canid I've worked with yet. The guard hairs on his back are about 4" long, and the underfur is thick and warm to the touch. You cannot see any of the holes from the fur side of the pelt.

He is mostly light gray-brown with white sides and a black line running down the center of his back. There is also a lovely black V just behind his shoulders. His face is accented by tawny red and dark gray markings whith lighter gray highlights around his eyes.

The leather is supple and professionally treated so that it drapes effortlessly over the wearer's body.

This wolf's pelt is backed by a single piece of midnight black felt, from the base of the tail to the tip of the nose. The felt protects the skin from damage and tearing, which ensures that it will last longer and remain more durable during wear. Felt is a recycled, all-natural material, and as such, does not detract from the wearer's connection to the animal as an acrylic-based or non-natural fabric would.


Only the eye-holes are left uncovered so that you can tie the wolf's face over your own like a mask, so that you can 'see through' the animal's eyes. There are two strips of recycled black leather on either side of the face so you can tie it behind your head or under your chin. Additional leather strips can be added at your request for no extra charge.

Perfect for Halloween, religous purposes, Burning Man, bonfire parties, Pow-Wows, costume parties, re-enactors, cosplayers, renaissance fairs, Roman battle reenactments, or anyone who wants to feel more in touch with their inner animal. It also looks lovely draped over an arm chair or thrown over the back of your favorite sofa. Could also be a fantastic wall-hanging, blanket, or rug for the cabin or log home.


From the tip of the nose to the tip of his tail, this wolf is about 64" long, and about 22" in width at the widest point. Face is 6.5" in width across the eyes. Please feel free to let me know if you need any further measurements.

Feathers, beads, and other extras can also be added for an additional price. This is YOUR headdress, and my goal is to simply allow you to customize it to your specifications. If you would like me to turn this headdress into a custom order for you, please send me a convo before purchasing.


ALSO NOTE THAT I HAVE A FEW OTHER SKINS FROM THE SAME AUCTION AVAILABLE. I am currently working on one silver fox, a black-and-silver coywolf, and another gray wolf. The silver fox is already backed with black felt, but the others are still avialable for customization. Please send me a convo if interested, or check out this listing: http://www.etsy.com/listing/59792947/by-commission-only-coyote-wolf-fox
