About Beth Beverly
I am a State and Federally licensed taxidermist who graduated from the Pocono Institute of Taxidermy in 2010 with high marks. I have a deep respect for this craft and those who strive to preserve it.
It is my pleasure to work on any trophy mount, be it a shoulder, life-size, rug, or fish.
I accept custom orders for fantasy mounts, wearables, and bridal hair pieces.
Sculptural mounts and hats are available for rental provided they are in stock at time of inquiry.
Contact me describing your wish and I will be delighted to make it so.
Diamond Tooth Taxidermy Blog:
Meet Vampyra. She is the beloved feline of a local Philadelphian and has been posthumously winged as per his request. I think it was a brilliant idea. She has a very gothy feel.
In life, she seemed to wear a mildly surprised or curious facial expression so I did my best to recreate that. I wish I had spent more time on her pillow seat, though. It could use some tassels, for sure, and also tends to want to lean a little bit.
I used wings from a chicken; at first I wanted to use a black rooster but after noticing all the subtle browns and reds in her coat, a pitch black pair of wings would have looked very flat so I opted for a bit more texture, color wise.
Many measurements and carcass casting to make a custom form.
A progress shot of her ears drying. Despite the carding the ears still gave me some grief.
Here she is, eternally poised for preflight.
It was an honor, Vampyra. Charmed, indeed.
