They may look like they’re from a bizarre animation but these neatly dressed creatures are real – or at least, they were.
Embalmed and mounted in fashions from different eras of history, the mice are the work of taxidermist Liz Davis.
She buys them from a pet shop, where they have been frozen as reptile food, and sets to work on transforming them into miniature dandies, punks and whatever takes her fancy.
‘They need to be left for at least a couple of weeks to settle and dry,’ said Ms Davis, of Minehead, Somerset.
‘Once I am happy with them I dress them. I’m also given road kill animals all the time by people who know what I work with. The market for unusual taxidermy is a fairly niche one but there are many people out there collecting it.’
Each one can fetch up to £80 but even fashion has its limits. ‘Mice have very short legs and arms so trousers are often not an option. And it would be difficult to have a mouse riding a bike,’ she added.
