Say hello to Kai :) by Brillyent-Blondie Say hello to Kai :) by Brillyent-Blondie
Say hello to Kai!!! He is my new soft-mount taxidermy Canadian cross fox done by MidnightWolfDesigns on Etsy! :woohoo:

This is a "teaser" pic; she is almost done with him (he will be getting a larger, fluffier tail), but after that he will be shipping home to me! I could not be happier- he is just gorgeous and I adore his face :heart: I will post more pics once he gets here!

**Disclaimer: I did not kill this fox. If you do not like taxidermy, that's fine, but please refrain from commenting.**

Oh I can't take credit for this! Kai is a soft-mount taxidermy piece done by MidnightWolfDesigns on Etsy; Basically, she takes a tanned pelt (either one you provide or one she finds for you), mounts the head with taxidermy grade supplies (fox form, glass eyes, earliners, etc.) and stretches the body leather to have natural contours. Then she sews and stuffs the body with polyfil to the right density.

If you're interested, her name is Katie and this is her website: [link] :) Hope that helps!

why did he require a new tail? I love that tail he has in this picture

Brillyent-Blondie Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
His old tail was second quality (had some slight rubs) and truly didn't match the rest of his fluff. The new one is much fluffier, has no damage, and surprisingly is even a better match color-wise :nod: But thank you! :)

lol its tiny compared to the others. I actually have no idea about ym cross fox, shes still ahsnt been tanned yet and is waiting fro me to fully pay the guy, so she can be sent to the tannery and than to well, I am still deciding on a taxidermist to have her sent to.

How exciting!! It'll be a tough call with so many talented taxidermists to choose from :eyepopping: Any ideas yet on who the lucky mounter will be?!

And yeah, the other tails are pretty large- so they def make his old tail look tiny :blush:

yeah, lilmissdoeeyes and midnightwolfdesigns are filled up with commissions until summer if I'm correct- but that's great because it gives you time to get everything in order! :nod: I'm excited to see your cross all done up and who ends up getting to be the lucky one to mount it!
