Hi CC fans! We have BIG NEWS! Custom Cranium is MOVING SHOP! We've found an awesome location at 154 Lawrence St in the Whittaker Neighborhood here in Eugene, Oregon. This place is AWESOME and we will be back to having our regular taxidermy classes, opening events, and other fantastic lectures, and presentations SOON! However, moving is hard; so if you can lend a hand to put things in boxes, and are available TODAY or TOMORROW at any time, leave a message here to coordinate with Darien or myself. Volunteers will not find us ungrateful! No carrying or hauling required, we've got a crew for that; you'll just be helping to pack things up, or unpack them at the new shop . We also need helpers for unpacking on THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

We just got a mention in an article on The Nerdist! I did an interview for a story on Game of Thrones, here it is, just posted today :)


Valar more-spoilers. A girl must science.  Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss finally gave us a peek into the lives of the Faceless Men on last week's episode “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” and it didn't dissapoint. The religious cohort of skin-changers was first introduced to view…

Look at all these gorgeous mounts we have! Come in and pick out your new friend today!

We have gorgeous new fossil ivory bits in! These have been shaped and polished already, often leaving the beautiful dark patina around the edges. You can't find better fossil ivory for a lower price, my wonderful supplier is a true gem.

We have some really cute rat jewelry in store! Including adjustable rings!

You asked for it, we answered! One gorgeous huge whole wolf pelt, winter thickness, all paws with claws, enough lip skin for a full or rug mount.

Or custom leather maker just brought us these sumptuous handmade iPhone wallet cases! We have two oxblood and two black, come get yourself a new accessory!

New heads on the wall! Red stag, caribou and wildebeest :)

Hey CC fans, We need volunteers today 3/25/15 to help out with some spring cleaning. If you can be available from noon to 7, leave a message here. Thanks! -CC Crew

X-Rays of the 2-bodies-1-head Alpaca baby (momma lived). Once we have the articulation done we'll be doing posters and t-shirts.

PS. Sharing (from this link) is caring :)

One of our giant African orders came in, and we have such a gorgeous selection of new stuff for you!
Wallaby, warthog, wildebeest, hartebeest, blesbok, gemsbok, plus new rams and the softest reindeer hide ever.

You guys are in for a treat! Blackhorse Forge has sent us a box of gorgeous high-end hand-forged Damascus steel knives. These are incredible affordable collector's items, each one unique.

Thanks to all of our existing customers and welcome to the NEW customers from the Evergreen Tattoo Invitational this past weekend in Springfield, OR. We really appreciate the boost you gave us at just the right time. Now to go restock all of that stuff!

New batch of gorgeous turtle shells just in. We took the time to polish these out for you because of the superior patterning, but left them more than affordable.

About Custom Cranium

Artist's Statement:

"I think this type of art is something of a second life for a being that may not have gotten to live out its full original life, and it's evocative of a regeneration, or reincarnation of sorts. Every life is important and artists such as ourselves are an important part of all of these animals, we touch their life every time we touch their bodies. It's an homage to life, if you really see it. Not death, although the two can't really be separated.

Because of artists who work with these materials, I hope every part of every animal is used."


No animals are ever harmed for the purpose of becoming Custom Cranium artwork. Custom Cranium simply gives more meaning to what is left after that death.

About Custom Cranium and the Snuff Stuffies:

Darien made her first stuffies in 1997 as a hobby, honing her taxidermy skills over the years including working at places like Skulls Unlimited. She began producing Snuff Stuffies for the rest of us in 2007.

These days her products include Snuff Stuffies (stuffed animals repurposed with bones, jewelry, armature and more), bone jewelry and other "Osteo-oddities". Custom work IS available!

Custom Cranium has a good following on Facebook, please join us and "Like this page". See the main web site for more information as well as links to the shop to see what is available right now.
