Comics superfan Vinnie Bartilucci has one of the coolest hobbies I’ve ever seen. He buys generic teddy bears from Build-A-Bear.com, then makes costumes for the bears based on comic book characters.
THEN, he goes to comic conventions and gives the costumed bears to the writers and artists who work on the comic. How cool is that? Visit Vinnie’s Build a Hero website to view all the costumes, along with photos of the artists posing with their bear.
Such a cool idea!
