* In ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', Belkar is fond of finding innovative uses for kobold bodyparts after he's killed them. The first time he does this is when he uses the head of Yokyok as an impromptu leather hat.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/{{Updraft}}'', the [[InvisibleMonsters invisibility of a certain monster]] is inherent to its skin, a fact which comes in handy when Kirit wants to make herself hard to find. It's not a very clean process, but it works.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' book, The Titan's Curse: after they kill the Nemean Lion, it magically skins ''itself'' and not only that, but because of the Mist's effects on mortal vision, it suddenly becomes a leather trench coat.

* Michael Havel, a.k.a. Lord Bear of the Bearkillers, from SMStirling's ''{{Emberverse}}'' trilogy, wears the head of the bear that earned him and the outfit their names on his helmet. Subvertes the trope by making Havel nearly get killed by the bear, and tanning is done by specialists off-page.
* Mack of Louis L'Amour's ''Last of the Breed'' pulls the realistic version with a number of animals that he kills down to a few of the early tanning jobs going bad because he didn't have time to properly treat the skin.

* In ''[[{{Nightside}} Something From The Nightside]]'', Belle wears the pelt of a werewolf she'd caught and skinned over her back, with its head draped over her own as per the pic above. In her case, she didn't need to tan or even ''clean'' the pelt, as she magically linked the fresh skin to her own body to acquire the werewolf's HealingFactor.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/FairlyOddParents'' movie AbraCatastrophe, after [[ItMakesSenseInContext monkeys become the dominant species]], the world changes to become jungle-themed, and Timmys parents are attacked by leopards. The next time we see them, they're wearing leopard skin clothes and discussing all the other things they've made with the skins (but [[ParentalNeglect nothing for Timmy]]).
