hi! firstly, i'll start by saying that i sincerely apologize if this question is silly or if it's in the wrong category. i do not practice taxidermy myself (but love to collect it), nor can i seem to find the answer i'm looking for anywhere else. so here goes. for several events throughout october i will employ the use of a cased skinned fox pelt for costume purposes (over the shoulders of a cape: think jon snow). i was hoping i could purchase another pelt that is open skinned to cover more surface area of the cloak, however, i'm uncertain if i'll be able to afford it in time. the one i have now is quite large and i'd be happy to reuse it; but i was wondering if there was any way i could open it down the belly without damaging the quality of the fur too severely, or if that would be a smart thing to do at all. can post pics if needed! thanks in advance!
