Build a Bears Furever’s 5th Annual Halloween Fashion Show

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

DIY Superhero Capes

Hello friends! Today I have a quick craft for you all. It’s very simple, and I think you’re going to like it. You’re going to need your model, some fabric, scissors, a hair-tie, and glue/a needle and thread. Cut a cape that covers your model’s back. Now you’re going to attach the hair tie to the neck of the cape. You can either sew it or glue it. As you can see, I glued it. I’m not the best with this fabric glue, so it turned out a bit messy. Ta-da! Super Waffle is on his way to save the … Continue reading DIY Superhero Capes

DIY Snowboard ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022

Hello friends! Today we’re going to focus on snowboarding…and more specifically, how to make a mini snowboard. Are you ready? You will need foam, duct tape, a pen, and scissors. You’re going to start by drawing out this rectangular shape onto the foam. You’re going to want to slightly round the edges. Make sure the rectangle is a bit bigger than your model’s feet. As you can see, this ended up being perfect for Waffle. Okay, now we’re going to cut a piece of tape that’s a good deal longer than the board. Fold it in half. Tape it onto … Continue reading DIY Snowboard ~ Winter Bearlympics 2022
