|The debut of Barney the Bear's OOAK artistry was a rousing success|
I have used her for a wig model
Mint except for:
Hair has been cut off
Thumb missing on one hand
Fingers missing on the other hand
Slightly played with by bears
Bite marks on head and body
Smells like Bears
Hairspray on Face
She is kind of dirty but could be cleaned up with a magic sponge or NOT
No original box
Questions please email.
Sorry the bear is not included in the auction. It would cost an enormous amount to ship and he doesn't want to leave the mountain.

COA included with doll and signed photos from Barney. He has sacrificed his beloved doll for auction and hopes the winner will be delighted with her. With a little TLC she might look better or maybe not. Barney is thinking of offering another one of his dolls from his private collection for auction at a later date.
|Who you calling big and hairy?|

|Hey, no photos until I'm done!|
|Ugh! The stupid brushes always fall just out of reach of my paws!|

|Not quite mint, but not bad, either!|
|Better start running, I want to look my best for the auction!|

The questions asked on this auction were pretty funny, and it seems that the potential buyers understood the humor Jude and Barney intended. Here are some of the highlights:
Q: You mentioned in your listing that were a few stray hairs and this Tyler was used as a wig model.
What size wig does she take. I suppose the stray hairs are what I see on her face. Since you said "Mint
Condition" I assume they can just simply be brushed off and she is pretty well cleaned up. Or (reading
between the lines) is the damage to her face so bad that she has filed for workmen's (women's)
compensation and her face needs extensive plastic surgery if she wishes to appear normal in public again.
A: She wears a 5-6 wig as you can also find in my store. Barney is taking wig styling so Mr. Barney may have some great creations on the horizon. Yes, she has been a model for about 6 years and that hair is embedded with hairspray. You might be able to clean it off with a power sander. That is a thought. She should file for some kind of compensation. She is bearly able to have any spa treatment at the time. Sad isn't it?

And that wraps up this edition of Fashion Doll Review. I would like to thank Jude and Barney for their gracious consent and use of their valuable time to be interviewed. All photos are by Jude, and starring Barney the Bear and Tyler Wentworth. All auction text is by Jude.
