Andrew Barber (of Fake Shore Drive) sits down with Eric Arginsky -- the owner of Kanye West's College Dropout Bear costume (the iconic mascot for Kanye's first three albums.) This interview serves as a part two of a previous conversation with Sam Hansen, who created the College Dropout Bear logo and Kanye's first merchandise line.
After the convo with Sam, Andrew was connected with Eric, who was told the tale of the Bear costume and his scrapped stuffed animal line with Kanye. They talk about the stalled plush toy line, see samples of the bears, as well as where the Bear costume has been for almost 18 years. He also relays that the costume is now for sale, but it's going to cost you. A lot.
