It started out as a headdress project for an upcoming shoot with photographer Seishiro Jay Tomioka. I needed the skull of a fiber bearing animal, and found a great naturally cleaned llama skull for sale on Etsy. Because of the communal nature of Etsy, I was able to get a back story on this particular skull.
Her name was Peaches, and she was an elderly llama that lived a full and happy life on a farm on the west coast. I decided Peaches was perfect for my project, so she took a trip all the way to the east coast of Florida to spend her afterlife with me.
Princess Peaches Gallery
And what a fabulous afterlife she gets! Just as in life, Peaches is well loved and cared for. What started out as a singular art project has snowballed into something much more. Princess Peaches, Drama Llama will continue to be a part of a headdress, but she’s also making quite a fashion splash! In her first month here with us, she’s acquired four tiaras, several miniature hats and a sassy new lease on the afterlife. Follow Peaches on her Facebook page. Llama Photo print purchased here.
