Another Fresh Water Mussel Costume!

Posted by Linda Costello Hinchey on August 9, 2019 at 2:35 AM

I started this costume almost a year ago. There is so much more to designing and creating these costumes that most realize. It's all painstakingly hand created and painted. Inspired by the Lampsilis fasciola, common name the Wavy-rayed Lampmussel complete with darter lure headdress. This one was created for the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge, Williamstown, West Virginia! Contact us to have your native species costume created!

The bottom photo shows the inside anatomy of the mussel.
