Get ready for bad BEE puns
Amanda Louise Spayd has created quite the buzz when she started teasing the colony with patterns of black and yellow, and now everyone is wide-eyed and salivating for more information. The first edition series in her newly dubbed Dust Bunnies, these colorful creations are known as Bumbles.
Flying in at 11″ tall, Bumbles have a handpainted resin face, cloth body, and paper-wrapped wire antennae with painted wooden balls on top. Amanda designed the body fabric and then had it professionally printed on a thick, high quality linen-cotton canvas. The little bee ears are made of wool felt, and the insides of the Bumble are stuffed with aspen wood chips and natural cotton. Amanda has also created brass tags for the numbered editions.
Sweater than honey, each gift boxed Bumble will cost $125 with an edition size between 60-70. They will make their first appearance in her shop this July and then more will swarm in for the CP takeover of Cardboard Spaceship’s booth #5346 at SDCC 2013. Get your F5 fingers ready, and pay attention to the blog for SDCC news or you might get STUNG.
Keep an eye out next week, because we are bringing you tons of SDCC goodness from the Circus Posterus crew.
