Flog It Blog It, Take A Chill Pill It's Roadkill!

Molly The Wally & Ratty Rat!

On the hunt for that killer accessory then designer Reid Peppard could have just the thing for you. The American artist creates taxidermy artworks and jewellery based on basically road kill and other assorted vermin. No it’s not Shocktober yet, but macabre fashion fans will drool over these creations. Reid claims that her work is entirely ethical as the animals she uses have already died of natural or unpreventable causes and are often discovered and donated by friends. Hmmm those are some really weird friends she has there. Her latest collection PET features regular metal jewellery inspired by and cast from a bunny, a cat and a canary. She says, this collection is a playful look at the domesticated animals we share our lives with. Yikes guys I won’t be going anywhere near her studio and thank you I’ll keep my own roadkill for the pot.

  1. Mom thinks these things are really horrible, but I like them very much and I would be very pleased to roll myself on them, like I do when I find dead animals on my way...

  23. Hey, you have a Rat friend! I try to make friends with the Rats that hang out in back yard with the Chickens, but they always run away. Why is this? I just want to play!

    I will not mention the rest of the things on this post for they are very creepy. Apart from the squirrel bracelet. I think I might like a squirrel collar, in fact. I bet that would make me very popular at my Park with all my friend, don't you think?

    Licks,

  29. That is just weird! Cleaver but weird, don't think I will be trying any out and I have all kinds of stuffed animals in my house but I don't wear them. Have a great day.

  30. We thought you had a pet rat for a second there Molly.
    We asked Mum which 'accessory' she would like for Christmas but she just screamed and ran out of the room (we think she was overcome with emotion!)

  31. My dogs love to destroy our visitors and house guests accessories... I believe this collection would be a big hit!

    ReplyDelete
  32. EEeeewwwwwwww - that rat headband totally freaks all of us out!!! Mom says she still has her Grandma's foxtails in the cedar chest (and it even has those beady eyes) and she thinks she just might have to drag it out for some new fashion accessory:)

  36. Uh, I think I'm going to be nauseous! :-/ I'm all into the macabre, but...I think this might go a little too far! Oh, but my brothers (yes, the kitties) say that they would enjoy that mousy pendant! ;-) Tasty!
