A Wolf - Bear Hybrid?! by lupagreenwolf A Wolf - Bear Hybrid?! by lupagreenwolf
Soooo....you know how in the past few weeks I got a flurry of commissions for wolf headdresses, something like eleven of them within a month's time? Well, I'm getting down to the last few, and I wanted to show off what was by far THE biggest hide of the lot--and, I believe, the biggest wolf hide I've ever worked with in my fifteen year career! He was sent to me by a customer who wants him converted to a headdress, and as I'm about to work on him this week I wanted to get a "before" pic.

This guy is ENORMOUS--I was joking to my partner that "Wow, I didn't know wolves and bears could mate!" See that picture? That's me holding him, right up against me, not out in front to make him look bigger. I am 5'4", standing on my tiptoes, stretching as high as I can to hold this wolf up, and his tail's STILL dragging the ground. I can only imagine what a monster he was when he was alive.

It is a true honor to work with this wolf, as it is with all of them, and I can't wait to see how he turns out.

Is that that artificial hide?

Everything I work with is real; most of what I work with ia reclaimed or recycled in some way. In this case, someone sent me a hide that they had been given many years ago to rework into a headdress.

So you shot a wolf and took its fur or just got one?

Read the reply I just gave you again. I said "In this case, someone sent me a hide that they had been given many years ago to rework into a headdress."

So this came from a dead wolf?

Well, it's definitely not a live one at this point! I don't know the exact origin of it since it came form another person who got it from another person and it was pretty old by the time I worked with it. That's as much as I know.

Never been hunting in my life, and even if I did it'd mainly be for food. I do what i do to reclaim remains and keep them from being wasted, as well as to be able to donate some of the money to groups that benefit wildlife and their habitats. Please feel free to ask questions about my work any time :)
