Something a little different today. Trawling through my inspiration folder, I began to realize how very many fashion shoots (or at least the ones I love and archive) feature furry little props (or big and scaly ones, too...). Considering, from my detailed perusal of countless America's Next Top Model episodes, I understand that animals are the most difficult models to work with, this kind of surprised me. Although I wouldn't be surprised either if many of these creatures were super imposed during post-production. Anyway, so here we go, a small selection of beastly images, whose provenance I'm afraid I cannot determine due to shoddy image-saving practices -- copyright issues don't extend to my desktop wallpaper, you understand.
