Leonardo's Look


We chose a Lion since New Brighton's mascot is a lion.


As stated above, we wanted a lion as our traveler, or so we agreed as a group with the students. Build-A-Bear no longer sells lions, so I chose from the available cats they had in stock.


Leonardo's pants were bought a Build-A-Bear. I figured he does need clothes and I was there already, we had to put something on him. I personally prefer shorts over any other type clothing and th e more pockets the better for a traveler.

I wanted to get him some sort of shirt, and thought of my favorite, Hawaiian, but did not buy one. My wife suggested that I make a New Brighton jersey for him, since Leonardo is representing us. I used an old shirt of my daughter's that no longer fits her and had a friend of ours embroider it. The video of the process is below.
