Melisa's Bears...

...is pleased to introduce a Miniature Realistic Polar Bear Cub

"Akki"

~*~ on a 7 day listing ~*~

I'm so pleased to introduce Akki, a miniature polar bear cub! His full name is Akkilokipok, an Inuit name meaning "soft snow." He is 4.5 inches tall when standing on all fours and can stretch out to about 8 inches.

Akki is a one of a kind artist polar bear cub completely designed and hand sewn (no machine sewing) by me, Melisa Nichols. He is very detailed and as such he is his own unique individual and can not be duplicated ~ a true one of a kind. Many, many hours of love and effort went into this creation!

Because of all this detailed work, I will never be able to create another polar bear cub just like Akki. I do not work with patterns - just from photos and drawings, so there is no pattern he can be remade from.

I've taken lots of photos of Akki and I hope you enjoy seeing them all!

Akki is made from very soft white synthetic fur.

Akki's adorable face is full of detail! His face has been thread sculpted, scissor sculpted and hand shaded. He has soulful black glass eyes with eyelids that can be posed open or closed.

Akki also has a realistic epoxy clay nose which I hand sculpted without a mold.

Akki's little paws were very time consuming. I scissor sculpted, thread sculpted and hand shaded them. I applied tiny paw pads.

Akki is completely hand sewn and filled with polyfil, pellets (in his tummy), and an extra portion of cuddles. He is fully armatured for lots of fun poses!

If you have any questions or comments about Akki, please email me me... I'd love to hear from you! If you'd like to be on my mailing list, please let me know – I send out an email whenever I have a new creation ready for ebay.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing all of Akki's pictures. Thank you for visiting his auction!

***FEEDBACK*** ~ I strive to do my best to make each auction a 5 star one - a five star rating is very important to me. Please consider giving me 5 stars in each area if you are happy with your purchase.
