Jackrabbit head dress by CindarellaPop Jackrabbit head dress by CindarellaPop
This one is a bit of a different 'head-dress.' While I've seen head pieces out there made of foxes and deer and even boars, as well as the more popular wolves, bears and coyotes, natures tinier, more timid denizens never get as much love.

I know deer are majestic and wolves are ferocious carnivores and the common rabbit seems timid and dull in comparison, but there's really something to be said for how fast and how tough these little blighters are.

This jack rabbit is a full pelt with a re-shaped head and ears and fits perfectly over a human head, his hind feet danging from the shoulders as shown. It's held on by a red leather chin strap. It's very light-weight and super soft and would make a great first head-dress for someone looking for one, a good ritual piece or even just an accessory to a costume.
He's for sale, but also would be willing to trade for an item of similar value.

He's on etsy here: [link]

Thanks! Jackrabbits are amazing creatures. From what I've heard, they're very difficult to taxidermy though!

Their skins are very thin and difficult to tan, Apparently it rips like wet paper.

Squirrel is supposed to work best. They're common and cheap and they have surprisingly tough hides that can take a lot of abuse.

yep, thats what i heard.
do you know anybody by chance who sells them cheap?
i looked on tax.net and hideandfur but somehow
there arent many out there now.
tanned and ready to mount would be best.

I haven't seen any around much, lately. Ebay seems the best bet.

Not yet, but it will soon enough. The mail to my apartment is slow in getting sorted and delivered I'm afraid, he'll probably arrive tomorrow.

Let me know when you get him and if he's damaged at all. I had to pack him into a box that just about fit him because I couldn't find any larger and I'm worried there might not have been enough padding around him.

I'll keep an eye out for him. I don't think he'll be in too bad of shape.

I'm very flexible! If you have anything you're looking to trade off or get rid of I may very well swap for it, even if it's not a full pelt. I'm not terribly picky.

Your photos are very yellow. You should adjust the color levels.
Have you seen those photos of huge rabbits? Some get massive.

Yeah, it's hard to do in artificial light. I try my best to get the yellow out of it but I'm kinda lousy at editing, haha. Oh man, some of the rabbits around here get HUGE. They all come out at night and just stare at you, it's so creepy.

Good thing they run from people because they have some long claws sometimes.

This is really nice! It's a great way to make a rabbit seem tougher and fiercer to people. I guess because rabbits have been domesticated, people think they're cutesy and fluffy and everyone's friend when they're actually really stubborn and smart. idk rabbits be losin their street cred yo and this headpiece buts them up there with tough as fuck deer and wolves. PS, do you have a tumblr? I'd love to be able to reblog your work!
