Mycinocroft Head by MagicRat Mycinocroft Head by MagicRat
Taxidermy form covered with faux fur, glass insets for eyes and touched with metallic paint and glitter. Took me HOURS. The skin on the nose is caulk textured to mesh to make it look real.

NOT stock, do not take. Photo (c) :iconsunstroke-art:

Gorgeous, I love the use of paint and glitter! The fur looks soft, I just want to play with those long ears. ;-;

Oh hi, glad you popped in! Your coming was foretold to me by this awesome NZ girl. :D I am SO proud of those ears, I made the forms for them myself! Any feedback you can give me? I'd love to hear it.

Yes, she is pretty awesome!

I'm loving the very simple design... Again, you did a great job on those ears! I love the way they lay back, It looks very natural. How difficult do you think it is working with a Taxidermy face? I've build two heads entirely out of foam and they were both frustrating as hell, I've always wanted to get one of these.

Does the jaw move, too?

The only problem with a taxidermy face is they don't make fantasy animals. Since this is a Mycinocroft, the face should be longer, but I tried carving my own and it just looked like hell. I prefer a taxidermy form because it was cast off a real animal so no matter how much I monkey with it, it still looks good. In my opinion it's worth the bucks. No the jaw doesn't move - in this one there is no lower jaw. The second one I'm building WILL have a lower jaw.

Ah, fantastic! You will post photos, yes? I'd also love to see some progress pictures.
I apologize if I seem a bit too excited, I just adore these costumes and all the craftsmanship that goes into them. They're wearable walking pieces of art!
