Thank you so much to FAN EXPO CANADA for having us, and for forcing me to get over some serious stage fright.
It was a fun-filled weekend full of spectacular surprises.
I’ve got some NEW TORONTO DATES posted, in time for those looking to create costumed Hallowe’en rats and unique holiday gifts.
OCTOBER 10 & 11
NOVEMBER 14 & 15
DECEMBER 12 & 13
RESERVE A SEAT!
Thrilled to announce that CASUAL TAXIDERMY is listed as one of the FEATURED HORROR ATTRACTIONS at this years FAN EXPO CANADA from SEPTEMBER 3rd-6th.
Join taxidermy artist and educator Ankixa Risk as she leads a discussion on the history of taxidermy from its roots as a method of preserving zoological specimens to the nineteenth-century fashion craze that literally changed the way we understand and interact with nature. Along the way, you’ll learn a little bit about anatomy, legal and ethical sourcing, and how to properly stuff and mount rodents. Not for the squeamish or Norman Bates impersonators.
If you are attending, please drop by and say hello.
HALIFAX was so much fun, can’t wait to go back!
COMING UP NEXT!
There is only ONE SEAT LEFT for Sunday JULY 12 in TORONTO, and Saturday, JULY 11 is starting to fill up as well.
I’ve just added a couple of CLEVELAND DATES, AUGUST 22 & 23.
