The Fashion of Taxidermied Vermin

Avant-garde artist Reid Peppard has a line of bold fashion accessories for men and women. Actually, bold is putting it mildly. The fashion accessories are pieces of fashioned taxidermy crafted from road kill and pest controlled vermin. The mouse bow tie is a particularly powerful statement, I'd say.


  1. Bwahahahaha, the mouse and rat headpiece is so hilariously stupid! You have to look at it and laugh. Who would wear that?

  2. Actualy, it’s a rat bow tie.

    And it being a white rat, I have my suspicion it’s demise was not a result of a traffic accident or any attempt to clean an area of undesired creatures.
    White rats are not a natural occurance. They are kept as pets, or kept as test subjects.

    1. Prob a feeder rat. Their page talks about sometimes using feeder rats.

      I’m really not sure how I feel about this–it seems ethically okay, at least as much so as the leather shoes I’m wearing right now, but–I’d have to question my motives for Wanting to wear an animal identifiable as such.

  3. Many moons ago I found a pair of pigeon wings on the docks where I was working – something had eaten everything but them. I taped them to either side of my hardhat for a great Asterix look. Everyone else thought it was gross.

  4. My favourite is the ‘Large White Rat Coin Purse’, because it opens so many doors.

    Just think – ‘kitty pencil case’, ‘rover backpack’, ‘grandpa duffel bag’!
