Farrell LaPetite a Ballet Girly Bear

'Farrell LaPetite' is a 6" (6.5" with bow) mohair La De Da' Ballerina Bear. Farrell views the world through premium glass eyes with sculpted/painted, leather eye lids accented with sculpted wet accents for a dimensional and soulful gaze. Her legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design, her long arms hang gracefully and tight to her sides. Her slight concave chest resembles an "adored before" long loved bear whose stuffing is a bit worn down from many hugs. She is under-stuffed in areas for a very relaxed and aged feel. Her belly is very rotund. She is created in a matted white German mohair. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay, blush and gray/olive then blended for a watercolor effect around the eyes/cheek area and for an aged, vintage appeal throughout the body. She is very well loved, plucked, weathered and worn to look like a bear from yester-year. Center seam head design. Her face has been needle sculpted to create a slightly upturned nose resulting in a cute profile. She is stuffed with poly, copper shot (belly) and the highest quality lavender buds, imported from Provence, France. Lavender is a La De Da' signature element added to all of my bears to enhance the "hug" experience with a gentle, therapeutic natural scent. Squeezing the buds helps release the scent, so you get a little bit of relaxation with every hug. As with all my bears, she has a hand sculpted clay nose which has been sanded, stained and painted in multiple colors for a leather-like effect and a painted mouth. Her ears are chubby and stuffed for a round full effect. Her arms and legs are thread jointed and her round head is wobble jointed for movement making her nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. I designed a gold tulle and Parisian text ribbon tutu which has a shabby mixed with chic feeling. She also wears the same ribbons in mint and gold on her head for a bit of la de da' flair. She can not stand on her own but can be propped. All of my designs are one of kind, no two bears are alike. From my heart to your hand....I hope the La De Da' Bears bring you a smile.
