I really like this.. If I cant get hold of a actually carcass I could just use pieces of cut meat.

I could create a dress or suit… but the cost involved in buying all the meat would be a bit high for me.

I love the dog in this.. I recently had to put down my 13yr old Fox Terrier last December.. this reminds me of him. 

This is quite comical 🙂

Here is my influential artist Zhang Haun again using meat in his work.

And who could forget Lady GaGa..

I don’t want my piece being ‘clothes’ as such.. more draped over me resting on me. As they will be signifying not clothing but death/the past and history being carried around with me.

    Well, Jess! I found your blog today…! Ok well I couldn’t do this, but I appreciate the concept and admire your lack of squiriminess! I am sure if you really want one I could obtain a carcass for you. I know a lot of hunters… but we may have to arrange a pick up or drop off… it sure aint coming in my Mothership 🙂 You go girl!! Let me know if you do want one…

    • Naw thank you so much! thank you for commenting and looking at my blog. Yes that would be great I have a friend who is going hunting this weekend, If he catches something I should be ok, but if not I will have to call on you! He said he cant make any promises that he will catch anything. I was going to put a call out for help with the meat. I would be happy to pick up it isnt the easiest thing to come across.
      Thank you again for your help and comments.. and yes I am a bit squimish I will have to have a big shower after and hold my breath!
