Photos from the Once Original Broadway Cast Recording album.
From the top we have Journey Phantom given to Stephen Tewksbury, Managers Raoul given to Greg Mills, Flunky given to Ian Jon Bourg, Amanda Huddleston with her bear at her Happy Trails, Stephen with his, Greg with his bear complete with coat, Phantom and Christine bears done for charity, Bonnie was able to remove the mask on her bear, and the scraps and fabric I had laid out to work on the Elisa Christine bear (you know, just for fun).
Part 2 of the Farewell Bears posts shows my progress through learning what I could and couldn’t get away with as far as detailing and fit for the bears.
Here we have M. Reyer given to Ted Keegan, Tin Soldier given to Stephen Price, Masquerade Raoul given to Jason Forbach, Hanging Stuntman given to Jacob Moody (one of our stunt guys who was awesome and scared the crap out of me every night he did the Il Muto hanging!), Sylvan Glade given to Bradley Benjamin, Mirror Bride given to Bonnie Frasier, Elisa Christine who was another charity bear and was purchased by Sarah Elizabeth Combs (cause she knew sticking around to the end of the run wouldn’t get her one), Monkey Girl given to Ashlee Dupre, Slavemaster given to Luke Lazzaro, Carlotta given to Krista Wigle.
So, since the posts of my farewell bears keeps coming up, I thought I would just do a post of all the bears I have photos of from start to finish. For those of you who don’t know the story behind these guys, I originally created a bear for a charity auction and received such a great reaction, that it started a tradition in the Vegas company. When someone left, I would make them a bear in one of the costumes they had and present it to them at their Happy Trails.
Some pictures will be of the actors with their bears and others will the just the bears themselves. It was hard to get pictures of the actors in their costumes with the bears during the show. :P
For Part 1, We start out with Meg bear, who by now you all know was first done for charity. The phan who bought her so loving gave her back to me at the end of the run, when the tradition of the bears was found out by the phans and since no one would make a farewell bear for me, he gave me the very first one I made. :)
Next we have Final Lair Raoul given to Ryan Silverman, Mme. Giry given to Rebecca Spencer, Gypsy given to Jessica Walker, Elisa/Carlotta given to Elena Jeanne Batman, Morning after Phantom given to Brent Barrett, Triangle Girl given to Sarah Ann Lewis, Masquerade Carlotta given to Geena Jefferies Mattox, Dressing Gown Christine given to Sarah Lawrence/Erin Stewart/Megan Starr Levitt, Masquerade Christine given to Amanda Huddleston.
