To help the bid, I’ve been adapting the logo – a running, anthropomorphic bear – into small gift items. The first is a felt ornament.
After a few attempts, I got the materials and technique down to make a first batch of bears.

Yay! If you’re at a convention and see a Helsinki in 2017 info table or party, I encourage you to stop by. Besides info on the bid, there’s Finnish candy (which is gooood!), fun people, photo op possibilities with Moomin trolls and sometimes even a bear by yours truly. And in 2015, when the time comes, vote for Finland! 🙂
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
