Taxidermy Fashion

Designer Bruno Frisoni presents a pair of shoes that will set you back $43,000!
The Dovima, as the shoe is known, is beautiful (and slightly creepy) thanks to the rose pink-dyed taxidermy birds perched delicately on each toe. Each stuffed bird also has a crystal-encrusted head and is further complemented by 24 ct gold-coated mesh, silk, ribbons, and crocodile-skin rosettes. Plus every pair comes with special protective crocodile or snakeskin platforms that attach before you wear them to keep the shoes from ever touching the ground.

I think thet are beautiful! theres a company making taxidermy jewelry from recycled animal parts from deceased animals. Very cool.

This is how god only knows how many birds went extinct in the US in the late 1800's - the craze for bird feathers in fashion.

Get me a pellet gun, some payless heels, a little glitter, and some glue, and I'll make you a pair for $2.50.

Ray- would've gone over better if you mentioned, like, a dodo or a velociraptor
