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.

"A pice of ass that'll make you cry."

More airbrushing today.

Groan.  Here I am, working my magic:

Side note- living a basically solitary life has rendered my wardrobe choices unchecked.  I wear whatever I want every day without considering who will see me, and I really feel that I'm tapping into my inner free fashion spirit that died a bit when I was a kid and realised people say things that make you want keep your true colors tucked away.  I'm having a wardrobe revolution!

Here is my Blue Gill, all finished.  Not terrible, but I was getting super frustrated with my airbrush and made several mistakes.  I really don't like airbrushing.

I do like fish teeth though.

Finished Perch.  This one turned out better than the rest.

And here is my finished Rainbow Trout:

There's some amusing graffiti about a mile from the cabin.  Oh, kids.  I wonder what they do out here?  Smoke weed and spray paint abandoned buildings I guess.

I'd like to think that if I ever had children, I would raise them out in the country...but judging from the ever-present meth problem out here, and lack of teen-oriented activities, I wonder if it's really any better than the city.  I take that back, actually.  I'll bet there are teen-oriented activities but I just don't know any teens.

I went home and worked out, then reconnected with an old friend on the phone.   Movie du jour was "Whatever Works" which was surprisingly delightful, and I have to admit that Evan Rachel Skank is actually great in it.  So good in fact, that I forgot it was her.

"You're in like flynn."

Moooooooore fish.

Here is me carving a form for my Perch:

And here is my headless Trout:

Some taxidermists prefer to use artificial heads for fish like Trout and Salmon because the heads shrink significantly during the drying time.  There is also oil stored in the head cavity which must be removed, and then covered up aith sculpted epoxy.  It's more work, more time, and in commercial taxidermy not economical to fuss over something that can just be tossed out and replaced.

Sewing up my Perch:

I enjoy skinning fish as well as carving the forms.  Honestly though, I'm not excited by  fish wall mounts.  It does nothing for me.  Given my druthers, I'd be making a mermaid instead.

I drove home straight from school for an aerial gig that fell through.   Long story short, I'm learning that red tape, and how I choose to maneuver my way through it, will be a major theme in my life for the next year or so.

Here's me playing God with static in my room.
