Hello friends! Can you believe it’s time for the 5th annual Halloween Fashion Show? Every year, I try to improve upon last year’s Halloween Fashion Show. Sometimes I improve the photos, sometimes the setting… This year, the focus was on the costumes. Usually, I reuse the costumes from years past, and I’ve done a little of that this year as well. But… This year we’re doing Marvelween! When I made Cali’s Scarlet Witch costume last year, I had an idea. What if the entire Halloween Fashion Show was Marvel themed? Fair warning, this post has fewer costumes than normal. But, … Continue reading Build a Bears Furever’s 5th Annual Halloween Fashion Show

Roughin’ It ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Chip

Hello friends! I’m Chip, and I’m going to be telling you all about my overnight in the tent. I was so excited for a night of camping! Now, I know a lot of you are probably thinking, ‘hasn’t Chip been at camp all summer?’ Well, I don’t consider that camping. Sleeping on a mattress? Air conditioning? Nah, those cabins are just a really cheap hotel. This, is camping. As you can see, the only things I have in the tent are a sleeping bag and a pillow. I debated on whether to use the pillow because it’s too comfortable, but … Continue reading Roughin’ It ~ BAB Appreciation Days feat. Chip
