It seems that all my posts lately have been either about episodes or icon posts. So here's a slightly different one. At last year's MediaWest Convention, I had ordered a set of teddy bears as the presenters of Top Gear from the Bear Lady. And today, they showed up in the mail! So here are pictures of the new additions to my menagerie of stuffed animals.

Pictures are behind the cut because they're pretty big.

Richard Bear

Jeremy Bear

James Bear

The cars are ones I pulled from my own collection of toys, but I do still need to find the right one for Richard. The Ford GT for Jeremy and the red Porsche Boxster for James are perfect though! Richard temporarily has a Ferrari Enzo, because it's fast and sexy!

The Richard Bear is hilarious!

Great idea.

Brilliant! who do I have to bribe to get some?

Well, I can certainly give you her email address if you'd like! It is krae37 (at) aol (dot) com. Just replace the (at) with @ and the (dot) with a .

These are the third, fourth, and fifth bears I've gotten from her, and I have plans for at least one more when I see her in May, possibly more than that. But all of her work is phenomenal!

Awesome, thank you! They really are brilliant!

Oh those are totally perfect for all of them! :D

I may have had a slightly oversized toy car collection to choose from...

These are wonderful! I have a Colonel Hogan bear made by the same lady - she does top notch work!

She really does do fantastic stuff! I have Tenth Doctor and Captain Jack bears from her also, and they're absolutely perfect. I'm thinking of who I want next now.

Adorable - and totally recognizable as the characters! (I particularly like the detail on James!bear's shirt.)

(Heh, the Ferrari Enzo is a nifty little number for Hammond!bear, I think. Finding miniature Bugatti Veyrons or Opel Kadetts might be a bit tricky...)

I must have sent the woman making them ten different pictures of James' shirts, and she found a print that was just as wonderfully hideous and headache inducing as the ones he wears. I'm amazed!

And I actually do have a Bugatti Veyron matchbox car, but it's so tiny, that I don't want to use it. I'm going to stay on the lookout for a slightly larger model of something that'll work. But for the moment, I'm perfectly happy with the Enzo.

I love richard's necklace.

The necklace was the one piece I was absolutely unwilling to make any compromises on. It's so identifiable as his, and I finally sent the woman who made them a picture zoomed all the way in on it, so that it would be right. And it's perfect!

Absolutely adorable...

Richard needs an Opel Kadett :D

As soon as I can find one, that's exactly what he's getting!
Saturday, February 12th, 2011 07:49 pm (UTC)
I think they are awesome!

So cute! James Bear looks the most like him (face-wise XD)

He really does! I'm never going to be able to look at James and not think of him as a teddy bear now though.
