'Sir Ashby R. Ascothappy' a Fancy Boy Bear

'Sir Ashby R. Ascothappy' is an 8.5" mohair La De Da' Fancy Boy Bear. He was inspired by scenes from My Fair Lady. Ashby views the world through premium glass eyes with hand sculpted and painted, clay eyelids (upper and lower) accented with sculpted wet accents for a dimensional and soulful gaze. The clay is sculpted around the glass eye before the tear medium is added to build dimension custom to the head shape and eye contour. His nose has also been hand sculpted, then stained in multiple colors for a leather-like effect. The legs/feet are a modified hockey stick design with long arms that hang gracefully and tight to his sides. He is created in a matted hand dyed German mohair in two tones of flesh/tan. He has been treated and hand tinted/painted in multiple shades of clay, gray and blush pink then blended for a watercolor effect around the eyes/cheek area and for an aged, vintage appeal throughout the body to resemble a bear from yester-year. Center seam head design. His face has been needle sculpted to create a slightly upturned nose featuring a cute profile. He 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. He is a lovely weight, under one pound. His ears are chubby and stuffed for a round full effect. His arms and legs are disk jointed and his round head is wobble jointed for movement making him nod more for a shy, "pick me up" appeal. He wears a black felt riding hat, embellished with velvet ribbon, antique buttons and black millinery roses on his head and a decorated velvet sash for a bit of la de da' flair. He can not stand on his 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' Artisan Bears bring you a smile.
