Lori’s project and my project ended up in the same room and this is the result. Her side of this composition, is Benson the Bear, who normally hangs out in the lounge at the Benbow Inn. Theresa, the owner saw the article about Lori and it gave her the idea to hire Lori to make some clothes for her and some of her bears. Every year the Benbow Inn has a big teddy bear tea and this year is the 100th anniversary of the teddy bear so it’s going to be a big event. In addition to getting some new duds, Benson also had some surgery performed so that his head would stay up.
My contribution to the scene is the mannequin that just arrived that will be used in the shop window when the Main Street gallery opens. Since I hope to have the gallery open July 1st, I was planning on having her wear this dress for the grand opening, and have her holding a flag. She’s a rather immodest gal though, and could definitely use a pair of underwear.
