About the furs and natural materials I sell:

Anytime someone is working with furs they run into questions about ethics and legality. All of the furs I use are taxidermy scraps or pieces from old rugs or coats that were damaged and needed re-purposing. I have collected and used many of these for educational purposes and as references for my art.
I have no qualms with taxidermy and I respect and admire it as an age old art form.
I believe we have a duty to the world around us to leave as little of a foot print as possible. I also believe strongly in recycling and I extend this idea to taxidermy scraps. These scraps would have ended up as trash but now they live on in art and can be appreciated.

Be sure to visit my other etsy store for lots of vintage clothing and nostalgia!

* I am no longer making Luck Dragons. I apologize if you were still hoping to buy one. I just feel the need to make more time for my other projects and ideas.
Please, if you decide to make your own, do not use my design. I intentionally made mine different than the film character. So feel free to model yours after the actual Falkor not my interpretation *

I'm in the market for weird and vintage taxidermy, broken taxidermy, Skulls, pelts, mounts, feet, shells, teeth, claws, feathers, novelty pieces, insect collections, butterfly displays, and anything of that sort.

I will trade art or give extreme discounts on items if you have something like that to trade.


About the furs and natural materials I use:

Anytime someone is working with furs they run into questions about ethics and legality.
All of the furs I use are taxidermy scraps or ancient pieces from old rugs or coats that were damaged and needed re-purposing. I don't hunt any of these animals or condone the behavior of the fur industry. I believe we have a duty to the world around us to leave as little of a foot print as possible. I also believe strongly in recycling and using all of the animal. These scraps would have ended up as trash but now they live on and can be appreciated.
