interesting work.
I think the idea of holding an acorn is cute.
Bet they cause a reaction when they are worn!
Thanks for sharing your ideas

I rather like them just the way they are, but think the acorn idea could work as well. Interesting stuff and well done! Cheesy

I have such a mixed view on these....they are beautifully put together but the materials give me The Fear.

I know I have no real right though to judge the animal parts 'cos I'm happy to eat animal and sit on a leather couch, etc.   Huh

And also, when I was a little girl I had a Lucky Rabbit Foot kilt pin that I loved so much and carted it around 'til the poor rabbits toes fell off so I imagine as a little girl I would'a thought these where AMAZING!!!

But I do appreciate the "mature content" label, they're always an incentive for me to click on them but I feel like I can't be surprised if I've been warned and look anyway!   Grin

I agree with the poster that said these would be good for cosplay. Since they are real, is the fur still soft or are they scratchy feeling?

The fur is still soft. It's the same as if it was alive but the foot is stiff because its dried.

I like the idea of a cap, like on a rabbit's foot, mostly for comfort's sake. I think that having the top of that foot rubbing on an ear and upper jawline would irritate after a bit. And having it hold something would be pretty cool. I dunno about an acorn as it would put it on the wrong side of morbid for me. ha Anywho, they're pretty cool and if they fit into my wardrobe in the least I'd rock them. ^_^

The top is not scratchy , I sanded it a little and the wire is wrapped around it so if anything rubs it would be the wire.

Inspiration without application is moot.

We went with one all-purpose "mature" tag, because otherwise we could have never-ending "warnings" (warning! Naked! Warning! clowns! etc etc). Craftster a happy place for people of all tastes and opinions. Smiley

Thanks, some of us really need those clown warnings.

It's a bit... Strange.
Good!
But, strange nonetheless.

Nice job on them though!

Awesome.  FWIW, I only clicked the thumbnail because it was marked MATURE.  I know that's where they put all the good stuff ;-) ;-)  I saw a guinea pig hair comb once that I would love to have.  That artist uses animals that die naturally. I feel like (ethically) am doing way more harm by purchasing factory farmed chicken at the grocery IMO and, for what it's worth, when I die (of accident or illness or age if I'm lucky) I'd be ok with my parts being turned into whatever wearable art anyone came up with.
