Black coyote headdress by CindarellaPop Black coyote headdress by CindarellaPop
www.etsy.com/listing/198513930…

Unlike traditionally mounted head dresses, which while beautiful, can be heavy or uncomfortable for long term wear, this piece is actually completely hollow! The yellow eyes are hand painted onto leather which was then affixed behind the eyes to create that wild expression. This means that the wearer gets the benefit of a beautiful traditionally mounted headdress without the drawbacks of it being heavy or overly fragile, or extremely expensive.

Taxidermy takes an immense amount of skill and a traditionally mounted head dress is never cheap! This piece can give a fairly lower-cost alternative for someone.

I imagine so, yes. I think she'll probably stick around for a while though, big ticket items like this one tend to hold out in the shop for the long haul.

What an awesome idea! I've always wanted a headdress but since I live where it's warmer, I knew I'd pretty much end up sick and dehydrated wearing one in the summer. If I hadn't just bought my dream pelt, I would definitely be looking at buying this :)

Summer time is killer for these things, wayyy too brutal to wear one out for very long.

It's so easy to have a staring contest with this, thanks to those striking yellow-greens.

Come to think of it, I don't think you've seen any of the wolfy stuff scattered in my room.  I wouldn't know what it's like not to have a wolf of some sort staring at me on a daily basis.

I have so much animal shit in my room my parents regularly make fun of me for it. Will I ever get sick of this shit? Maybe someday but for right now I'm going to jealously hoard it like a dragon that doesn't go outside much.

"Do you ever get sick of making fun of me for it?  No?  Well, now you understand: the animals STAY!"

I guess my hoarding analogy would be a sphinx that stockpiles so many bits of knowledge and information that he doesn't have time to go outside much.  You always see them with big-ass books and candles or lamps and such in modern fantasy art.  Much better than the old sphinxes that just sit around in the sun all day until they crumble apart, blegh, booooriiiing.  And what kind of boring person would simply "get sick" of this wonderful stuff?

I figure if it's been around for this many years I ain't likely to get sick of it yet. They mostly want it to go away because they think it will chase away potential love interests.... I almost don't have the heart to tell them.

...tell them to mind their own smegging business, because those animals give off a strong, inspirational vibe, dammit.

I still have all that decor burned into my memory and specially filed in my brain's list of resources for any drawing that can even remotely relate to them.  Even the little gnome living by the TV, and hell, I'd love to get one of those vodka skulls for my place (I even found out Dan Akyroyd runs that company!  ...and it's expensive shit).  The wolf on the chair, her little nose, the wall o' pelts that I only briefly glanced at; everything has such a specific character to it all.  To get rid of it just wouldn't be you.  And expect you to get rid of it certainly isn't respectful of you.

The animals have proven to be amazing companions, even when dead.  If anything, they're protecting you from anything not willing to give that level of commitment!

Heheh, funny you should mention protecting. I always leave the wolf in view of the front door because I consider it a "guard dog." If nothing else, someone who bursts in uninvited will look at it and go "...well shit."

Good to know the wolf approved of me and allowed me safe passage, but then again, being the wolf-man I am, how could I not approve of it as well?

Also not surprising, seeing as how I've always served as my own guard dog.  Not only do I look like a bouncer (even without that song playing), but I definitely give off a "test" vibe with my very presence.  If people give me that "....well shit", reaction; boom! I immediately know they aren't worth my time.  They ain't gettin' in.  And that's only the first line of defense; the battalion of dead-baby jokes behind the front lines keeps out unwanted "guests" from entering my life as well.  What can I say; much like the dead babies, it never gets old.
