Wedding Bells

Posted on May 20, 2014

My latest taxidermy creations are these bride and groom rats that I have been working on for a commissioned piece that has turned out to be one of my favourite projects to date.

Aside from making and dressing the taxidermy rats, I have also enjoyed creating the scene that I have photographed them in which includes tiny hand cut confetti and a paper flower wired arch.

For the bride rat, I have handmade a skirt from lace that I picked up in a local antique shop and customised with a silk tutu. I then made a netted veil with a beaded hair band topped off with paper flowers and a bouquet to match

BRIDE-GROOM-3

I wanted to make the groom rat look both traditional and dapper so designed him felt trousers with braces, a bowler hat with ribbon detailing and a velvet bow tie.
