The skunk is pretty cute, but I'm biased towards skunks!

Now THIS is taxidermy I can buy into!

Cuter than real taxidermy, but why go there at all? Still kinda creepy if you ask me...I'd rather buy a whole felted bunny/deer.
However, I can probably think of some people with the sense of humor that would embrace this...there's something for everybody out there! Especially at Etsy ;-p

I changed my mind. Still icky to see even pretend animal heads mounted.

I'm just wicked enough that I love this. I think they would be even cuter with little x-ed out eyes and pink felt tongues hanging out. Or maybe growling with vicious felt teeth. Heehee. I need to go watch some Happy Tree Friends..

Um.

I can't decide whether I'm about to laugh, scream, barf, or buy.

This is very confusing.

am I the only one that thinks this is uh... kinda disturbing?

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 11:08 AM

Nah, don't want those...
Rather have a tax-return-me!

omigod! When will the senseless slaughter of stuffed animals stop!!!!???!!!

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 11:17 AM

Um, yeah. Okay.

I'm thinking this needs be classified as Cute or Sad.

Kind of a waste of mad felt skills.

Hi-larious! I hate the real thing, but this is very tongue-in-chic.

Definitely belongs in the "Cute or Sad" category. My mom got me a wall-mountable teddy bear head for Christmas. I decided the only thing sadder than putting him on the wall would be putting him in the closet or getting rid of him. So I named him "Ben" and hung 'im up. He's very sweet. And a little sad.

Cute...but not for those prices.

Second Cute or Sad.

who would cut the heads off stuffed animals???

OK, this is cute to me. Must be my sense of hunmor!

This is similar to Humane Trophies, which has been around a long time. Not sure how long, but I bought one of their skunks (a whole one) when I went to Vermont in 1993.

With Humane Trophies, you get not just the head mounted, but also the 'tocks -- and Meg, brace yourself, they have PANDA head and 'tocks! See http://www.humanetrophies.com/display.php?cat=42&item_id=P284

The other end would be funnier to me. This sort of...I don't know. Kind of like that talking moosehead on The Doodlebops. Who should, in my opinion, be sent back to the planet they came from, or Canada.

OMG, I was just looking at her shop the other day! I love the unicorn, so funny! For those of you who don't like the mounted head thing (it's just satire, people, sheesh!), check out the rest of her shop. She does have just regular stuffed animals.

oh! how cute! :D i have done my own versions; knittidermy

i once saw one like that, but it was the rump of a cow: it was really funny (and sad) but i liked it because it made fun of people who put those things on their walls, and are serious about it.

hmm.
i don't know.
i need more time please.

liz
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 12:16 PM

oh, i just realized, that cow rump (and other rumps) is on the humane trophies site. someone else already said it: sorry to be redundant!

budgie blogger
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 12:17 PM

I could swear that I've seen something like this before where you have the mounted head on one side of the wall, then you walk into the next room, on the other side of the wall where the head is mounted, and there you find the body and rump of the animal, mounted at the same spot.

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 12:44 PM

I hate the real thing too, and I don't feel comfy with these. How about HUMAN feltidermy hedz? Now THOSE I could go for! Lessee -- hunters,apathetic airheads, rightwing politicos, materialistic snobs -- the list is endless!

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 12:52 PM

Hooray! Girl Savage's work is really awesome. It's great to see some etsy love on this blog. (Of course, I'm biased, being on the Plush Team also)

Claire
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:01 PM

Lina, I like your version better somehow. maybe because its all white, its got a bit of a modern art vibe. on the all white wall its really nice. good job!

still, i kind of like the felt taxidermy. its kind of clever-cute.

j
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:02 PM

I just don't "get" either the feltidermy or the other-kind-of-dermy. Creeeeeeps me out *shiver*! who'd wanna do that to a poor, innocent toy bun, bearbeh, unicorn, or skunky? or a real one, either?

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:20 PM

It... it just isn't the same as the real thing. :(

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:21 PM

I am genuinely surprised that this seems to bother people. Maybe I am living in a goth bubble. :D

IT'S FELT, PEOPLE.

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:41 PM

My parents' house would put most of you into shock. But my boss's office would probably put you into a coma with all the mounted heads. I admit that it's kind of weird, but having grown up with it, and lived with hunters all my life, it's not horrifying to me. And that makes these doubly cute to me.

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 01:45 PM

Lisa -- "tongue-in-chic" is an awesome turn of phrase.

Theo
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 02:11 PM

I think it's hilarious, and I slept with stuffed animals until I was, well, older than most boys who grow out of that sort of thing.

I say again: HILARIOUS and CUTE. Not sad.

berthaslave
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 02:18 PM

That's super funny. I love the animal butts too, but my roommate would kill me if I decorated our place with those things.

Renae
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 02:42 PM

Get a new roomie, Renae.

;)

Theo
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 02:51 PM

muhj: you want to come home to see those people staring back at you from your wall? Sounds like a bummer. I'd rather my home be a haven of cuteness. Feltidermy (and lina's knittadermy) is genius.

This notion to tag this as "cute and sad" is redonk. Such commentroversy reminds me of that Spike Jonze IKEA commercial with the lamp: http://youtube.com/watch?v=TsQXQGaasUg

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 03:06 PM

Oh! Oh! GirlSavage does custom work! I could get her to make little mini felt versions of my lagos! How cool is that??? (No, not the mounted head versions, the entire animal versions...sheesh!)

Tiberia
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 03:24 PM

This is so adorable! I'm surprised my mom didn't start this, since she has devoted most of her sewing life to creating jointed bears and country bunnies!

Yeah, real animal heads creep me out, in a Norman Bate's office sort of way...I used to date a guy and the only time I was ever at his house, every corner of the living room had a deer head mounted, all these glass eyes staring at you! So glad I didn't marry this guy!!!

Dear God! You killed Pat The Bunny!

NOT. Cute. Fail.

ROFLMAO at Maman.

RIP Pat the Bunny.

I find this amusing. It's just silly.

A lady--love the Spike Jonze commercial. It just shows how in the right context, you can make anything seem sad--even a lamp!

leannrose
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 04:09 PM

Want one!!

But even better would be a little diorama with a human hunter head mounted on a plaque and across the room on a couch is sitting a satisfied-looking, blaze-orange wearing deer!!

(I totally stole that idea from either a FarSide or New Yorker cartoon I think!)

It makes me sad that someone says to put hunters' heads on a wall mounting. Many hunters donate more time, money and attention to animal and preservation causes than self-proclaimed animal lovers. Many of them hunt and rarely ever try to bring anything home because they just like to be out in nature, and many of them hunt for the food. It's not some different form of animal cruelty (in most cases-- there are always a few bad apples).

Manda
 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 04:38 PM

I have to admit I think they're pretty cute.. not that I would be likely to buy one. And yes, I know someone with the rhino head on one side of wall and rump on the other.. someone gave her the head and then she was told about the rump so had to find one for herself. I never really thought about it until now. They were BIG too.. (not life size of course but BIG.)

Lots of folks on ETSY making quirky cryptoids, and "taxidermy" of various no dermy materials.
I couldn't stop making monsters if I wanted too...

ETSY rocks.

(Ok I have a shop there too...

OMG - the poor red lamp!
too sad. I must go rescue him.

Messed up my link with punctuation:

just click my name if you want to see some critters and monsters.

 |  Jan 30, 2008 at 04:56 PM

@Manda--sorry, didn't mean to sound like I was disparaging hunters. I just liked the idea of having the tables turned!
