I’ve always loved stuffed animals and I was pretty exited as the idea came up to shoot with giant stuffed animals made by German plush company Steiff.

Since I was young my black panther “Cozy” from Steiff was always my favourite cuddle buddy, maybe because I knew it was something special as I became it for christmas years ago.

As I saw this super fuzzy furry panda in life-size. 🐼 Β I really needed to have it on my arm, and actually I was talking with the panda the whole shooting, telling him how cute and lovely he isΒ 🙈

Some years ago I visited my boyfriend during his semester abroad in Chengdu. THE panda city, and of course I went to the panda park.

Actually it was a bit boring because, I mean they are so lazy, they didn’t do anything special except eating and sleeping. But I think never ever in my life I made that many videos. All the Chinese people around my were making films and taking photos, so of course I followed the flow, first not to feel bad while standing as a super tall girl in the first row and to block the short peoples few. But second, I really hoped the pandas are soon going to do something funny and stupid and I will have it on tape.




And if you also can`t get enough of pandas: 🐼🐼🐼

        Oh btw. I have a small stuffed panda in a traditional Chinese shirt and a panda pullover with ears from China. So I think China is the place to go for you πŸ˜‰
