Bergdorf Goodman Holiday Windows...

As I mentioned earlier, after Hayden and I went to the MoMA, we stopped in front of Bergdorf Goodman to take a couple shots of their amazing holiday windows.  I've uploaded them to Flickr.  CLICK HERE to go to the photo set.  CLICK HERE to go to the Bergdorf Goodman site to find out more about the windows.

I like this pic you have here the best out of all of them! I used to paint store manniquins for a living many moons ago when I lived in NY. What a great job that was lol!

This is one of my favorites! I think it's why I picked it for the blog. I love owls and I love that she's playing against one. She looks clever... but will she be as clever as the owl grand-master owl chess champion?

That's probably one of the coolest jobs! So many artists did that by day while they painted in their studios by night. I've only done a couple of windows here in the City. It's a very competitive thing nowadays that's often times hired out to major designers now. I am always astounded by what people are doing these days in windows. They can rig up some of the most amazing things.

I could litterly pack up and live in that world! How Fabulous!!! Love the staircase, and those Marie style cakes - wonder where they found all the taxidermy, or where the animals of another material???
Truly amazing! Now I'm off to read about B.G...

I'm not sure, but I think that a good much of it is synthetic. Either that or they borrowed stuff from the Natural Museum of History. Apparently the displays were modeled after ones in the museum. I don't know, but there are several good taxidermy supplies that you can get the bases and painstakingly glue on fake fur.
