“This B.U.D.’s For You!” Custom Toy Show Wrap Up

Slightly overdue, but still a spectacular event, here is the round-up, wrap-up and review-for-you of theone-of-a-kind, custom toy show that we particpated in just last week in Buffalo, NY. “This B.U.D.’s For You!”, awesomely put together by our good friends at Hero Design Studio. The toys used for this show are B.U.D.s or Blow Up Dolls, sold as blanks for customizing. Totally fun and a true test of skill and problem solving. When’s the last time that you tried painting a 3-D surface for an art show? 

Check out the photos from the show’s opening on October 24th:

All of the pieces in this killer show are, custom, one-of-a-kind, hand crafted, painted and styled pieces created just for the This B.U.D’s For You! show. They will all be on display and for sale at Hero Design’s Boutique store in Buffalo, NY through December 24, 2008 and also available via their website. Click here for more info. 

We had a great time making our toys, and an even better time at the opening. Thanks again Hero!
