At first glance these new accessories line for men looked pretty cool... until we realized they were made from pigeons and rats! Avant-garde artist Reid Peppard uses "taxidermy crafted from road kill and pest controlled vermin," according to Boing Boing. Prices aren't listed on her site, but we're guessing that Rat Bowtie will cost you a pretty penny—its eyes were replaced with Swarovski crystals.

The designer says she uses roadkill, or animals "caught by her cat, from a local city farm or snake food." And ladies, looks like she's thought of you too. How much would you pay for one of these rat headbands (pictured after the jump)? Keep in mind, these guys still have their teeth!
