Does anyone have contacts for taxidermists who create things like this?

I will second DeWayne's endorsement of Sarina Brewer for taxidermy, and David's endorsement of Doug Higley as the Homer Tate of our times.

Kondni is correct...I was getting 'stuffed' all week on a Cruise...I think I ate 27 1/2 times a day....groan.

As to taxidermy...Yes...Sarina does really good pieces.

When putting your show together, consider what reactions of the 'crowd' you are looking for when deciding your show content. What are you after?
Revulsion? (Two headed babies)

Amazement? (Cow with 16 legs growing out of its nose)

Unknown Mystery? (Chupacabra, bizarre animal life)

Laffs? (Kondini's photo)

Do you wish to Simply Make Money? (Two headed baby on a large midway)

Be seen as a Curator? (Collection of taxidermy & oddities...remember though a Two headed Duck is still just a Duck, so not much mystery or amazement there)

Share Wonders and make a few bucks? Get creative, come up with a theme and something no one else has or re-imagine something others have in a new way.
