Cruella DeVille mink stole fur creepy

What we have here is a mink stole that would actually be enhanced by a proper PETA bloodbath. Their wee little faces are so creepy…

  1. Not sure, but I could swear that the model with the furs on is the woman they used as the basis for the character of Flemmeth in Dragon Age II. I realize the image is controversial, but she is, hands-down, one of the most strikingly beautiful older women I have ever seen.

  2. ‘I suspect this is making a statement about the hypocrisy involved in wanting a fur, but not wanting it to look as if it is made of dead animals’

    That’s what I was thinking too.

  3. Interesting reactions. Although I couldn’t find a definitive answer, I think what we are looking at is indeed mink or ermine. These are just the heads with a strip of skin as a “tail”- that’s why they look so short. I’ve seen similar sold in large lots on eBay. Because of animal rights issues, using the faces has gone out of vogue among furriers (while they are just as dead, stoles without faces upset people less). That means that the faces get thrown out. While the rat stole was making a statement based on peoples “eyew” reaction to rat skin vs. their “aah” reaction to mink skin, I suspect this is making a statement about the hypocrisy involved in wanting a fur, but not wanting it to look as if it is made of dead animals, using what would otherwise be discarded.

  4. @Heather,
    They look similar, but not similar enough that I’d assume one was a rip off of the other.
    The rats in the picture you posted look like stuffead animals and are on the hood (forming a wreath aroud the models face) the one in the picure above are clearly real animals (or very good imitations) and appear to be on the shoulders and back of the the coat and are not as tightly packed together.

  5. dead animals aside, it’s a gorgeous set. i love that they used a white haired model. true (gothic) beauty is timeless/ageless.
