Regular price £240.00

Skully is a kooky, funky and funny one of a kind artist bear in denim, faux fur, mohair and printed cotton by Barbara Ann Bears

Skully stands 15 inches( 38 cm) tall and is 11 inches (28 cm) sitting.

Skully is a wild and artistic bear and can at times be outrageous, she is a pirate at heart after all. Yes, a glamorous pirate with her motifs and fluff from a Biba jacket, don't worry she didn't have to murder anyone for them she just had to persuade them gently that she needed them more that they did, pirates are good at persuading. You'll be quite safe as long as you don't let her catch a glimpse of any jewellery, or designer clothes, or anything valuable really.

Skully is made from several different pieces of fabric, she's mostly made from a pair of 'pale black' designer denim jeans, her body and the top of her head is a long fluffy faux fur which was once a Biba jacket, it looks like a patchwork but somehow they can make this as one piece of fabric, clever people aren't they? The top of her face is a long fluffy peach mohair and the backs of her ears are an extremely long black mohair. Skully has interesting paw pads made from a designer fabric with a cheerful skull motif, which complements her personality beautifully. The Biba jacket was adorned with several cotton badges which Barbara has sewn on, there is a pair of lips on her right shoulder, a pair of lips with a toothy grin on her left hip and a lovely pink heart on her right hip, embroidered with the words 'GO AWAY', of course this isn't meant for you, it's just a message for the paparazzi (the police, the coastguard, the navy...)

Skully has beautiful, large, hand painted glass eyes (painted to match her colours) with hand coloured eyelids, an impressive nose embroidered from individual threads to match her colouring and a beaming smile, she is stuffed with plastic pellets and polyester stuffing to make her more poseable and cuddly, yes she loves a cuddle, you might need to check that you have all your jewellery and mobile phone afterwards but you will feel truly loved. It's hard for a pirate girl to find true love, that's why she has a rather doleful expression, despite the hugeness of her smile.

Skully is a wild and colourful arty teddy bear with a very sweet personality. She could give the appearance of being quite dangerous but she is an easy and interesting bear to live with, she will rarely cause any trouble, on the whole she just wants to make people happy.

Did we forget to mention that she loves to investigate strange phenomena? You might find that she goes missing for a few days to gather evidence of alien sightings and paranormal events, but it's really nothing to worry about, just a bit of a hobby for her.

We will enclose photos with Skully and we are happy to put in a greetings card and gift tags, maybe a birthday card or one for another occasion, you can choose one from our greetings card page and let us know which card you would like.

As with all our bears, Skully is not a toy, he is an adult collectible and unsuitable for children under 14
