an alternative to wearing dead animals.
I was going to enter this for the ultimate DIY contest, until I read the official rules (because I do that) &you have to be 18+ ):

oh well, &you can also:
stuff it to make it a stuffed animal,
stab pins in it &roll it up to make one of those things
or leave it flat as a scarf.
