A new use for ratty stuffed animals

Love this! Fashion and the Milwaukee Public Museum

A Fashion shoot in a natural history museum using the dioramas as the setting. Ooops. Reading more closely, I see that the models were Photoshopped in. Still, I think this could make a great fundraiser oportunity. Showcasing local or University talent, maybe?

Edited to add: Yes, I know having the public traipsing about the exhibits would be bad, on many different levels. But maybe something like those "you are there" photo thingies, like you see at touristy destiniations? At the Hancock Building in chicago, they have several places you could stand in front of a giant backdrop and get your photo taken so that it looked like you were out on a girder or whatnot. Or the giant set of shark teeth (not life-sized, mind you) at the New Orleans Audubon Aquarium that you could crawl up into.
