The Star Wars version of "the snuggie" (and more)

For my money, Bear and Bird Gallery's "Stitch Wars" exhibition is the best art show I've seen since I started blogging. Below are some of my favorites from the show, as well as links to the artists' sites and webshops when I could find them. You can see high-res versions of the photos, more photos, and photos of many more items from the show in the Flickr gallery. There's also a companion blog with a great photo of a giant plush Wookiee. And if you're going to be in Lauderhill, Florida, the show runs July 18 - August 29, 2009. I received a copy of the price list, but I wasn't clear if I was supposed to post that information. So contact B&B for details if interested. In the meantime, you'll find lots of great items in the various webshops I've linked to.
