I have created this headdress as more than just a skin with some leather string tied to it: It is built to be functional, sturdy, and beautiful.
Crafted from a VERY rare silvery-black coyote I purchased from a fellow artist. His face was already shaped for the most part when I got him (he was a rug before he became a headdress), but I did have to do some work to the muzzle because it warped a bit when I removed it from the padding it had been attached to. Now, it's one of the most stunning headdresses I've offered to date!
This little guy is an impressive shade of dark charcoal black with silver-tipped guard hairs and white highlights around the shoulders and sides. His face is strippled with bits of gray, white, and black, but he retains a hint of brown behind the ears and at the butt of the tail. By far one of the most unusual and unique coyote colorations I've EVER seen!
Measures 55" in overall length. Has two strips of recycled black buckskin leather attached to the sides so you can tie it atop your head as pictured.
The leather is supple and professionally treated so that it drapes effortlessly over the wearer's body. The head was rehydrated and molded over a hand-carved form to give it a more lifelike appearance. His ears stick up over the wearer's head and are slightly pricked forward in alterness and the lower jaw has two recycled leather strips attached so that you can tie it securely beneath your chin. Additional straps can be added at no extra cost.
The pelt is un-lined as of now, but I can see to it that it is lined with the felt of your choice at a small additional fee.
Perfect for Halloween, religous purposes, Burning Man, bonfire parties, Pow-Wows, costume parties, re-enactors, Mountain Man, cosplayers, renaissance fairs, Roman battle reenactments, or anyone who wants to feel more in touch with their inner animal. It also looks lovely draped over an arm chair or thrown over the back of your favorite sofa. Could also be a fantastic wall-hanging, blanket, or rug for the cabin or log home.
Custom orders are always avialable.
