Crazy Taxidermy Museum - Stuffed Animals in Costumes (1965) [HD], Potters Museum in Bramber, Sussex
British Pathe made this video at Potters Museum in the 1960s. Walter Potter lived in Bramber his whole life and spent his time dressing up stuffed animals elaborately and placing them in human scenarios.

The original narrations states "Potter was a genius who made fur-lined dolls into whimsical but veritable works of poetic art". Of course some people today would see his life's work as abhorrent and disgusting. He was undoubtedly a true British eccentric.

Some of the tableaus took years to arrange. The museum still exists today but has moved to Devon, and there is a sign there stating that the animals died of natural causes.
