No animals were harmed in the making of this blog entry.

If like us you have a morbid curiosity with the creepiness of taxidermy but know to actually own one would be a level or two creepier than you are prepared to go then let us introduce you to crochadermy. It somehow still manages to keep a dash of the creepiness but this is nicely balanced with a large dose of utter cuteness.

These AMAZING pieces are the work of UK artist, Shauna Richardson. She uses coarse wools like mohair, and glass eyes to create life size animal models and hunting trophies. All works are created using a single colour and only one type of stitch for an entire crochetdermy model, changing the direction of the stitches to highlight certain anatomical features. She works with a single 3mm hook. Crazy! If you have ever tried to crochet you will understand this is an absolute FEAT.
