The White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland

Original Costume Designer: Patricia Zipprodt
Bear Costume Designer: Anne Robin Luckett
Signed by Mary Stuart Masterson

"Oh my fur and whiskers!" Have you ever seen such a transformation? This bear was first soft-sculpted to create a fat tummy, rabbit-like thighs and huge, 3-toed rabbit feet. His mask, ears and sculpted body were then covered with a short, curly white fur. And to make him free-standing and posable, his body was wire-reinforced. He is smartly clad in a two-pocket, silk-blend vest with painted buttons; and his 100% wool coat is detailed with kick pleats, two pockets and covered buttons. His ascot, coat and details on his body were hand-painted to match an illustration by Sir John Tenniel. Carrying a hand-crafted (handless…) watch with a gold-braid fob, the White Rabbit is made complete with his Tibetan lambskin wool tail. Bid on this "wonder"-ous bear now, so that you won't have to say, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!"
