Frosty the Anime SnowBear...2010
Each year I make a new version of Frosty the SnowBear... there has been a big hefty open mouth one... a needle felted one... a minibear... and so on. This year I made an anime one. Fosty is a little over 6 inches tall and was made from a lovely soft straight mohair with Ultrasuede paw pads, large black German glass eyes and a polymer resin carrot nose. I made the nose and embedded a wire loop into it so that it could be sewn on Frosty.
Frosty is stuffed with fiberfill, weighted with steel shot and jointed with cotter pins and hardboard discs. He is wearing a wool plaid scarf and felt top hat and carrying a broom.
He will be listed on etsy and BearPile soon...
