Good news for animal lovers who also enjoy having a fancy hoohah: Cindy Barshop has just announced that the fox fur merkins she offers at the Completely Bare salon will now be faux fox fur. Needless to say, PETA was less than thrilled with Completely Bare's use of fur, so Barshop sent out the following email: "I respect and value your opinion and was moved by your determination in what you believe in. I have every intention to fix this by re-introducing the Foxy Bikini with Faux Fur. Lots of love and positive energy to you and your cause." [The Cut]
