'Tippy Weestep' a Haute Shabby Ballerina Bear

'Tippy Weestep' is a 6.5" mohair La De Da' Haute Shabby ~ Ballerina Bear. Tippy views the world through the finest quality glass eyes with sculpted leather eye lids accented with sculpted wet/tear 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, shaggy German mohair custom dyed in two tones of pink. She has been treated and hand tinted/painted in shades of clay, gray and blush 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 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. She wears a sweet velvet headband accented with a millinery pink rose on her head for a bit of la de da' flair. I designed a very full pink tutu from a shimmery tulle. 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.
