Did you know a flock of crows is called a "Murder"? I just thought that was interesting. Anyways...
— Avian Amante publicity blurb
The Avian Amante (ah-mawn-tay) is a community-created cosmetic item for the Spy. It gives the Spy a black common raven's head and covers the inner suit shirt with feathers. Spy's cigarette is leaving on the beak, with smoke emmanating from it.
The head comes with fully-enabled facial flexing for voice commands and responses.
This item can only be worn around Halloween or during a Full Moon; at other times of the year, it does not appear in gameplay, unless the server has Halloween mode enabled. However, it can be equipped at any time and can still be viewed on the loadout screen even when it is not visible during games.
The Avian Amante was contributed to the Steam Workshop.
