Lupa in Shaman Costume

This is a picture of me in part of my shamanic costume. The headdress is an Arctic wolf head skin with leather tassels and some other detailing. The vest is made of scraps of leather from clothing and other sources. The pants are linen and came from Goodwill. The horsehide/yellow cedar drum was made by Cedar Mountain Drums ([link]) and the beater was a deer leg I found during a rite of passage, and has a piece of elkhide to soften it. Not pictured is a wolf fur coat I got from eBay, and an Arctic wolf tail on a simple leather belt. If you're interested in my shamanic work, go to [link]

Interesting project, nice to see how all your different pieces come together to make the costume complete.

I love the costume, wish I could make something as good. :3

Thank you--it's my first attempt at anything of that particular sort.

Ahh, that makes it even better!

I've often meditated by studying at the patterns on a drumskin, odd how lunar they can look sometimes.
Is that a willow you're under?

Yeah, the skins do end up with sort of a moonscape look. And no, it's some sort of climbing vine, no idea what species.

Awesome! It's very powerful; even the photo is full of energy.

Thank you :) It was actually a really quick pose.

I'm in love with that head-dress.

It seems very powerful, or perhaps its sheer beauty and awesomeness blinds me XP

Funny thing is, it was just a quick pose :P

Alas, blinded by the beaty of the head-dress I was then T_T
