Thanks, Bettie!

Okay, so it’s a hoax, especially with that URL, but if you’re looking for HUMAN taxidermy services…LOOK NO FURTHER!

And here we have Nina Saunders’s taxidermy furniture.

Thanks Jim!

Did someone send me Sweaty Taxidermy? I’m not sure if this was a reader submission or my own bookmark!

The pollen count must be high today, because those eyes are pretty irritated.

This is probably the only despondent pounce effort you’ll ever see. I bet even the prey would want to comfort him.

Tacky Taxidermy Week, Day 3: Smile!

Posted in absurd, creatures, humor, taxidermy with tags , , , on June 4, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

You know how sometimes you’ll see an animal at a certain angle, at a certain moment, and it appears to be smiling? This is not that.

These are gruesome, gratuitous, godawful grins…facial contortions that do not exist in the actual animal kingdom.

Tacky Taxidermy Week, Day 2: “Zoologically Improbable”

Posted in absurd, creatures, humor, taxidermy with tags , , , on June 3, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Now let’s have a look at some creatures who appear to be experiencing emotions or postures that do not, in reality, exist in the animal kingdom as we know it.

The whole lower half of this one is more disturbing than its nonplussed face.

Posted in absurd, creatures, humor, taxidermy with tags , , , on June 2, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Tacky Taxidermy won the theme week contest! So here we go!

Sometimes there is just a *little* something off about the taxidermy creatures we encounter…

But others are downright SASSY AND FIERCE!

SWS does NOT endorse the mistreatment/killing of animals for art! I make an effort to post only ethical taxidermy in which the animals were already deceased. If you somehow discover that one of these creations actively harmed the creature involved, please let me know so I can remove the image immediately.

Retro Atomic Sci-Fi Kitchen

Posted in craft, decoration, home, retro, retrofuturism, sci-fi with tags , , , , , on June 1, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Ceramic artist LuRu’s Retro Atomic Sci-Fi Kitchen is a truly awesome, completely handmade renovation.

Look at these incredible tiles!

Despite working with a small space, LuRu really rocked this theme. There’s even a sci-fi “stovescape!”

Yep…I’m completely in love with this tiling.
