Ok here was a request for tonights fun balloon time. This was a request I just received this afternoon for a baseball player. It’s that time of year again. The boys of summer are at it again and the smell of peanuts being tossed up into the stands is in the air. Here is my very own version of a baseball player, complete with a glove, baseball and glove.

Tonights creation is my first attempt at creating an alien being similar to the one seen in a popular children’s movie. Can you guess which one? Ok, here’s your hint…it’s not the normal everyday Toy Story that you’ve been reading in books.
The last one was a warm up. Now on to a harder one. The next one is a famous mermaid that lives under the sea. No this is not Wilma Flintstone with flippers! Although, it could probably pass for one if I put a white dress on her. I spent the afternoon with the Velvet Rhino himself and he showed me this favorite twist. Thanks Scott!
Balloon twisting has been a lot of fun for me. Lately, I have been getting a lot of requests and my clients can’t believe the results. In fact, this past weekend at the Grand Opening for Holmes Regional Hospital in Viera, I was asked to stay longer then was originally contracted. Luckily, this was one of the days that I didn’t have another show to run off too, so I stuck around. There were thousands of people that turned out for the hospital tour and it was a typically beautiful Florida spring day hitting almost 90 degrees.
Everybody was styling their summer clothes and most were showing their support for the Orlando Magic Basketball Team. This next picture was no exception. He wanted a zany hat that captured his excitement for his favorite team. Of course, I was all too happy to make him this crazy creation. Hours later, he was still wearing it and I was able to get a snap shot of him.
The last picture I will leave you with is a little something that I was working on tonight. This is a hat with a little bit of the sea attached. I know it sounds crazy but the twisted sandy base is the hat part and then a very famous clown fish is hiding between some seaweed as bubbles are seen escaping above his head. Tune in next time to see what will be next!
