"Percy," from The Scarlet Pimpernel

Original Costume Designer: Jane Greenwood
Bear Costume Designer: John David Ridge, with the assistance of Paul Huntley (wig) and Martin Izquierdo (shoes)
Signed by Douglas Sills

From the tips of his two-toned leather boots to the top of his wavy auburn wig, this bear is the spitting image of Broadway’s gorgeous and talented Sir “Bearcy” Blakeney, Douglas Sills. A singing and dancing 18th-century fashion plate, our Sir Percy models a wine-colored wool, high-collared tail-coat with stamped metal buttons, coordinated with beige silk fall-front breeches trimmed with side buttons and bows, and a gold-and-brown striped double-breasted vest accented with brown satin buttons and lapels. Finishing details are provided by a fluffy bow-tie with ruffled ends, cuff ruffles, an ornate gold watch fob and a wide green ribbon to tie back his hair. Autographed by Sills, no one would ever suspect this fop of being the heroic Scarlet Pimpernel -- would they?
