Hi!
This is the first challenge I've taken part in and it's been great fun so far. Cheesy

This is Ursula, she's a leading robotologist and she has been working with robots and electronics for years and years. Ursula is currently working on a robot that will look and act just like a real bear.
She has a PhD in science, electronics, robotics, mechanics and bizarrely enough, in cookery.



Ursula is made out of toffee coloured corduroy and she's been stuffed with rags and polyfill. She has a button for a belly button and her eyes and nose have been embroidered.





Her labcoat is made out of cotton and it has little decorative buttons on it.



I apologise for the not so good quality of the photo, the sun had already started to set by the time I got to taking photos of Ursula and so the lighting in the work room wasn't the best possible.
I re-did the photos today, with better light and less of a rush. I also took some additional shots of the details.

And for those who might be wondering, yes the electronics around her are actually recording equipment I borrowed from the boy for this shoot. Smiley

I know. Next time I'm making a bear, I'll most likely make the ears a teeny bit smaller. The poor thing does look a little mousy as it is. Smiley

Thank you. Smiley
The belly button is my favourite thing in making softies, since it looks cute and I'm such a sucker for word play like that. Cheesy
