IT IS INTERNATIONAL VULTURE AWARENESS DAY

edit: I can’t change the photo above but this vulture needs a spelling lesson. It’s LAMMERGEIER. :)

My International Vulture Awareness Day post continues to gently explode (yay vulture awareness!) so I thought I’d post these here. We snapped a few quick shots right after I took the ones with my signs, just for fun. This is actually in my yard and I was grumpy that the cottonwood tree fell but at least it made for cool photos. All photo credits to my husband, eldarath

This is Kleiveer the Bearded Vulture (Lammergeier)!
This is built on a base crafted by the very talented Crystumes. Altered, furred, and finished by myself.
The bone necklace was crafted using only scavenged deer bones from the woods. I had a lot of fun dying and totally wrecking the cloth for the cape. The gloves are hand painted.

Lammergeiers and many other vultures are in trouble. Some species have lost over 90% of their population (read more). Many African species are on track to extinction right now. Beardies are seeing some conservation success in some areas (some of Europe), and declines in others (70% loss in Africa!). Vultures, in addition to being kick-ass, are super important parts of our ecosystems, and are worth saving.

(Thank you for all the kind interest but I am not open for mask commissions right now. More info
Also I appreciate the comments! While I think furries are neat, I don’t identify as one. I just like birds, wildlife art, conservation awareness, costumes/Halloween, and am very inspired by Jim Henson! I grew up watching
The Dark Crystal. )

My most recent mask, Kleiveer the Bearded Vulture (Lammergeier)!
This is built on a base crafted by the very talented Crystumes. Altered, furred, and finished by myself.
Kind thanks to the folks that took photos of it at AC earlier this month. Last photo is courtesy of Rivkah Winter.
