How to Twist a Balloon Reindeer

This is a 11 balloon reindeer that uses six 260 mocha balloons, two 160 white balloons (antlers), the end of one red 260 (nose), 1 mocha 350 (body and tail) and 1 five inch white round (eyes). If you are interested in a video tutorial, please comment below and I will put one together.

Tis the season to be merry. I can’t say that last line without thinking about Clark Griswald hitting on the sales woman in the lingerie department in the Christmas Vacation movie. Definitely one of my favorite movies of the season. At least I don’t take it as far as my brother who has an annual party where you must come dressed as someone from the movie!

If you are looking to decorate your cubicle at work or jazz up the office of someone special, Rudolph always steals the show!  Build all other 8 reindeer and the sleigh with Santa Clause to really get into the spirit.

Holiday Balloon Twisting Parties

Comedy Plus Magic Equals Fun!

It is possible to have a great comedy magic show right here in sunny Florida! I really enjoy performing and some of you got to see that first hand today here in Melbourne. You know who you are and right now you are thinking to yourself how much fun we had. You may not remember what you were laughing about, but you will remember laughing and that is my goal.

 

Today I was looking though my facebook world and and saw this funny clip that Fred Moore shared. It is taken from the Conan O’Brien TV show of comedian Pete Holmes.  When you are ready for another chuckle, take a look at this clip.

 

This is really funny, maybe a little more for my friends that are magicians, but everyone will get a laugh. Thanks Fred for finding this clip.  Remember the noise you are supposed to make at the next magic show now! HA!

Florida Balloon Artists

Dynamite Balloon Creations

I have joined forces with two other premiere extreme balloon artists in Brevard County. Our website will be unveiled soon, but for now we have released a slide show or some of our earlier creations.

Scott Barhold and Mike Van Ness have combined their unique twisting abilities with Vynn Credible to make what clients are calling “the best balloon creations” they have ever seen!  If this is what you want to hear your clients, guests and business associates say about your next event, wait no longer and book today.

We just completed a huge Fall Festival for Health First employees at Wickham Park.  This event had over 7000 (yes that is seven thousand) employees and family members which enjoyed their Saturday afternoon being entertained by our terrific trio with our wise cracking jokes as well as some unusual balloon creations.  Scott even has a creation that he claims no one has ever seen before. This one even caught me by surprise.

The fun doesn’t end when we hand you the balloon creation, as most people hang around our tent to hear and see what we will do next.  I have to admit that the time flies by and if the battery on my air pump wouldn’t need changed every 4 hours, I would lose track of time as well!

We look forward to meeting new people at every event and even some old ones. In fact, one lady even asked me how often I twist balloons and then she reminded me that she had just seen me at a different event the day before!  Get in touch with me about how we can make your next event unforgettable as we Blow It Up with entertainment!

No Mo’ Chemo Party!

Isabella Knocks Out Cancer!

 

This past Friday I probably had the most fun I ever had twisting balloons. It wasn’t because I made the most unbelievable balloon I ever created and it wasn’t because I created the largest or funniest balloon ever created either. The reason was because my daughters 8 year old friend successfully finished her last chemo treatment and has kicked Cancer’s BUTT!  The whole evening was filled with energy and excitement and I stayed til every kid had the balloon of their choice and as you can tell, the pictures were taken as most of the decorations were already taken down because my wife couldn’t get close enough to me during the event to take any pictures! Sometimes I wonder who has more fun, the kids or me!  The guest of honor, Isabella was kind enough to allow me to have my picture taken with her and I wanted to share it with all of you.

Fall Festival in Cocoa Beach

Chalk Artisit meets Balloon Artist

 

Scott Barholdand I had a great time twisting balloons in Cocoa Beach last week and a Fall Festival held at the Living Bread Church on A1A.  We were positioned in two different buildings so that we wouldn’t gather too large of a crowd in any one place and it worked out beautifully.

I even got to meet Jason Anthony Palmisano who is a Chalk Artist, Speaker and Artist. He is another home town guy that I have had the pleasure of seeing on more than one occasion and suggest you seeing him too if you ever get the chance.

The youth Rock band really kicked it into high gear with their awesome musical talents and singing. I was really impressed with their show and so were all the teens that were jumping around and singing. Of course I think they could have jazzed up their appearance with some outrageous ballon animal hats!

 

Trick your Eyes and have a Happy Halloween!

Illusion To Try At Home!

This is a really cool trick to play on yourself.  Happy Halloween and I hope you had more treats than tricks this year as this holiday draws to a close.  This little trick works if you remove your glasses or just move back from the computer and look at it from a distance. Enjoy, have fun and share this link if you liked it!  And remember, if you like being fooled while being entertained, book Vynn Credible for your next event by calling 321-890-6329.

 

Illusion to trick your eyes

Who do you see...Marilyn or Albert?

This may not be the most impressive hat I’ve ever made, but it was exactly what this little boy wanted to match his newly painted face. Magic Mike allowed me the honor of filling in for him last night while he performed at a different gig. He has quite a following that comes to see him each Wednesday from 6 to 8, so if you are in the area you should stop by and see him.  Had a lot of fun last night making a jungle scene complete with Monkeys, Giraffes, Elephants, Sharks and Parrots too.

Come see what Extreme Balloon Twisting is all about and check out Vynn Credible at my next event.  Speaking of which, that will be tomorrow night at the Living Bread Fall Fest 1801 S. Orlando Ave Cocoa Beach from 6 to 7:45.  I will be joined by my extreme twisting side kick Rhino!  This event will be off the chart. Stay tuned as pictures will follow!

Vynn Credible & Velvet Rhino Entertain with Extreme Balloon Twisting!

Today I teamed up with the Velvet Rhino and we crushed it with balloons of all shapes and sizes. I even revealed my secret superhero identity.

Vynn Credible Revealed his Secret Identity

 

We were under the big top at this windy event today, but that wasn’t enough to keep the lines from forming as we quickly adorned the heads of young and old with everything from Super Hero Hats to Alligators and Rhino’s new specialty, the giant fake nose and glasses.  I laugh every time he makes, especially when he makes it with the mustache and pretends to rub the ends as he handle bars it.

Anyway, we had a great time before we had to part ways and head in separate directions for private parties.  Tinkerbell was more popular than Super Hero hats at this 4 year old’s birthday party in Fox Lake Park in Titusville. That place is beginning to be a regular stomping ground for me as I’ve done parties there every month for the last few months.  It’s a beautiful park with plenty of shade, lots of parking and many different size pavilions to fit any number of guests. I highly suggest checking it out if this is in your area.

When planning a party there are many things that we know you must take into account when trying to prepare that perfect event. For instance, making sure we have the cake and ice cream ready, party favors at the ready and games ready to play are some that we often think of first. What I would like to like to remind you about are the often overlooked ones that can really throw  a wrench into your whole time table if you would happen to forget them.

Birthday Wish

5. Scheduled time the Entertainer will appear should be approximately 1 hour after the party starts. This will account for late arrivals to your party and take away the stop in the show or the entertainment.

4. Have a list ready with someone who will write down each present as it is opened and the persons name who brought the gift. This makes the whole Thank You process easy the next day when you are trying to remember who brought what and the generic Thank You for the gift thank you that is sent out when you forget who did what.

3. Remember when hiring a balloon twister, account for 5 to 7 minutes per child of time that you will need the twister for and then add on another 30 minutes to an hour (depending on party size) for balloon surgery or replacement or wounded or KIA balloon creations.  In other words, if you are having the average size  party of 10-15 kids, then an hour and a half to 2 hours should be the time allotted for a good twister.  Maybe a little longer for one with advanced creations.

2. Have all pets safely kept away in another room if the balloon twisting will be inside.  Many kids running around with these balloon creations could scare them and animal versus balloon always results in animal winning that popping contest.  You won’t want your new puppy eating latex and getting sick or worse.

1.  Give yourself enough time after the party to relax. You deserve it! After all, you just had Vynn Credible dazzle your guests and they all left happy, so why should you get to take some well deserved rest!

Have a great event and see you soon!

Don’t Hire A Magician!!

5. You have a Mime Fetish.

4. You’d rather see if the stories are true about how many kids have a fear of Clowns!

3.  All those bounce houses blowing away with kids in them doesn’t scare you.

2. 15 kids running through your house with nothing to hold there attention is NO Problem!

1. No one ever explained that Magicians are not supposed to just trick you.

I know that many of you already know me and have even seen me perform many times for one event or another and are thinking that I must have bumped my head before adding this post, however I am serious.  From Birthday Party Moms to Full Time Professional Event Planners, there is someone right now looking around on the internet for the best price they can find for a magician.  While there is no Orbitz or Travelocity to find the best price on a magician, I’m here to to help you understand that you are going about it all wrong.  Price should not be the main concern, although I do understand that we all have budgets.  However, even budgets have a high end and a low end. While riding a bicycle from Miami to Jacksonville may save me a ton of money on gas, I think I’d rather spend the extra money and drive a car or even take the bus.

Let’s get back to the main point, Don’t Hire a Magician! What you really are looking for is a professional entertainer  If you think about it long enough, you know deep down that this is what you were really looking for to begin with and just didn’t realize it.  An Entertainer is someone that will take their audience on a magical journey in their mind.  The day to day troubles are forgotten for a moment as the mind is allowed to wonder and believe that something extraordinary has just happened which creates a child like amazement in each of us.  This is what memories are made of and when the weeks, months and years pass after your event, people will be talking of that moment and what a great time they had there.  When they reminisce about this event they will then remember who put this fantastic time together.  If this is a corporate event, what easier way could you be on someones mind all the time. Oh, I  know, that fancy pen with your logo on it they picked up at your booth won’t even make the trip home. In fact, they left it on the table for the waitress after signing their receipt. Or maybe the party favor bag you put together going to 5 different stores to find the right themed items for the birthday  party. Wrong, that was shredded in the car on the way home. I’ve worked the corporate world and spent many business trips in Las Vegas collecting all the freebies from the vendors only to give them to the kids when I got home and never looked at them again.  Speaking of kids, my have attended many parties in the past and they could never tell you what trinket they brought home before.  However, every single time my kids bring home a friend they all ask me to show them something magical because they remember the time I entertained them at their friends birthday or the show at the school or the 4th of July party or…the list goes on and on.

Let’s create memories together that turn into something special.  After all, do you want someone to think for a brief moment that they were just tricked OR wouldn’t you rather have your friends, family and coworkers talking about how funny it was when Vynn Credible was trying to escape from the straight jacket and his arm fell off!

See you soon!
