Custom Fabrication

At Creatures & Cultures, we love working with clients to bring their vision to life. We specialize in custom animal props and realistic lifesize figures. Our in-house artists can help you take your idea from concept to sketch to item.

We can produce a wide range of custom animal props, including realistic faux taxidermy animals, foam latex animals, mummified animals and custom creature skeletons. Past custom animal projects include building culturally authentic livestock for the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum and providing a lifecast of a blue whale’s inner ear bone for the BBC nature series Beyond Human.  

We can also produce a variety of lifesize figures for production or exhibit use, including standing figures, sitting figures, realistic mummies and custom skeletons.

Special Orders

Creatures & Cultures can special order a number of items from our network of vendors. We are particularly strong at sourcing skeletons, skulls and bones.
