How about customize a dead insect that you find? Mike Libby, from Insect Lab does that for you, if you are interested.
Insect Lab is an artist operated studio that customizes real insects with antique watch parts and electronic components. Offering a variety of specimens that come in many shapes, sizes and colors; each specimen is individually designed and hand- assembled, each is one of a kind and unique.
The work is very impressive, but I hope that he still just dissecting dead insects, as when he started. Otherwise I’m against kill them for do those stuff, specially butterflies and spiders. (via ladrilio)
