The Denver Boys of Leather showed its softer side Friday night at the Build-a-Bear store in the Cherry Creek Shopping Center for their fifth annual holiday fundraiser. DBL members came to stuff, dress and accessorize puppies and bears to donate to a local child advocacy organization, and they looked good doing it in their snazzy new black and green uniforms.

The leather-clad band of brothers -- and sisters -- frolicked like kids, watched the fluff machine cram their creations with stuffing, and after the last small sweater was chosen and the last little pair of shoes was tied, 53 toys were ready to go out and bring some holiday cheer to underprivileged children. It wasn't certain who actually had more fun -- the uber-friendly staff or the merry group of kinksters, but it's the Christmas season, so watching leather folks putting tiaras on little pink bears was sweet enough to remember all year long.

Check out the adventures in bear-building:
