So, since the posts of my farewell bears keeps coming up, I thought I would just do a post of all the bears I have photos of from start to finish. For those of you who don’t know the story behind these guys, I originally created a bear for a charity auction and received such a great reaction, that it started a tradition in the Vegas company. When someone left, I would make them a bear in one of the costumes they had and present it to them at their Happy Trails.
Some pictures will be of the actors with their bears and others will the just the bears themselves. It was hard to get pictures of the actors in their costumes with the bears during the show. :P
For Part 1, We start out with Meg bear, who by now you all know was first done for charity. The phan who bought her so loving gave her back to me at the end of the run, when the tradition of the bears was found out by the phans and since no one would make a farewell bear for me, he gave me the very first one I made. :)
Next we have Final Lair Raoul given to Ryan Silverman, Mme. Giry given to Rebecca Spencer, Gypsy given to Jessica Walker, Elisa/Carlotta given to Elena Jeanne Batman, Morning after Phantom given to Brent Barrett, Triangle Girl given to Sarah Ann Lewis, Masquerade Carlotta given to Geena Jefferies Mattox, Dressing Gown Christine given to Sarah Lawrence/Erin Stewart/Megan Starr Levitt, Masquerade Christine given to Amanda Huddleston.
