Big boy Bruno really is a bit of a monstrosity! He was inspired by some stunning new super deluxe faux fur we had arrive in store (usually used in the European fashion industry) that was just begging to be turned into an over-sized panda. We just got a little carried away with 'how big'!
Bruno has been designed as a sitting bed-bear. He is fully UN-JOINTED - which means that he is perfect for cuddles as there are no hard bits to get in the way. If he could stand he would measure approx 42-44" (just over 1m) tall. Sitting he takes up a space approx 32" x 32" x 32" (80cm x 80cm x 80cm) - so he really has a great deal of presence about him.
He has been stuffed reasonably well with a brand new silky-feel polyfill. This gives him enough support to sit upright without toppling over, and just the right amount of squishy-ness for superb cuddling. (his head is a little firmer then his body and limbs so that we could still achieve our classic Emma's Bears facial detailing).
Bruno looks out through black glass eyes with our hand sculpted polymer clay lids. His nose is hand embroidered and features some silk-dye shading. His hands and feet are created in a soft 3-dimensional style with padded toe and sole detailing - made from layers of foam backed faux suede usually used for furnishings.
Bruno is gorgeous, and we have many sad collectors from around the world who are unable to adopt him due to the size restrictions on transporting him. He is a one of a kind artist bear, and is likely to be the first - and last - bear this size that we ever make. We've added in a couple of his work-in-progress photos too to show you how he slowly came to life. If you're local to Brisbane and would like to come and see him in the fur, please don't hesitate to contact us.
~*~ Please Note that these bears are designed to be Adult Collectables and not intended for infants and young children due to small parts (eyes) and potential for damage (excessive limb twisting/ busted seams etc) – however child safe versions can be custom made and I would think that the bears would be fine with sensible, gentle children (yes – I am sure they exist!) Convo me if you have any concerns. ~*~
