The bear headdress I recently completed saw its first LARP game! My wonderful customer had some amazing things to say about it and they absolutely made my entire weekend:
“Seriously, I don’t think I could ever really put in the right words how I feel about this bear, it is sincerely one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen and owned. Your craftsmanship is far beyond talented and I cant thank you enough for this stunning piece.
It’s more than just a prop for me, it holds deep spiritual meaning and a strong connection with nature itself. I fell so madly in love with it the moment I saw it, and then even more so the moment I put it on. It gives me such an incredible feeling like no other and I’m so proud to wear it and oh gosh I’m just rambling now, sorry.
Anyhow, this game was amazing and I had so many people compliment, admire, and gawk over my headdress. Everyone was so enthralled and amazed and could hardly keep their hands off of it. I made sure to answer all their questions and point them in the right direction! Seriously, the entire town fell in love with the headdress and were so happy for my character.”
This is what makes my job so absolutely rewarding. I adore seeing the positivity that my taxidermy brings to people, especially those who, in turn, share their excitement and their own positivity with others. I am so stoked to see where else this bear goes next!
