This week in Balloons...

Hello LoonyBalloonies!

My sweet nephew Brooke turned 2 on Monday. I can't believe how fast the time has flown by! He had his birthday in a local park and I made balloons and ate yummy chocolate crackles. Little kids parties are the best! Not good conditions for the balloons, but any balloons that burst were repaired fast.

Just to help pretty up the post here is a picture of Brooke!

Supanova Brisbane 2010 - Balloon Dress Time!

Had a fabulous time in Brisbane recently at Supanova Pop Culture Convention. 'What better place to wear a dress made out of balloons than at a Pop Culture convention?' one might ask oneself. My answer to that is not too many other places! Having said that, no surprise that I was the only one there in one!

Included are some of the construction photos and some of my favourites that I have found online through my friends. The dress itself took over 10 hours and 100 balloons. At the end of it all I had to pop as I couldn't take it in the plane haha.
The last picture is of the dress once all the white bubbles had been popped. I think it looked rather artistic, so I just had to take a photo.

More construction pictures can be seen here. Also please visit A Rainbow of Balloons on Facebook!
For my next dress, I'm thinking something Anime inspired... hmm.... Any suggestions? Please leave a comment!

YouTube Tutorials

I have finally created a YouTube tutorial for a balloon animal. I chose to do it of a little bunny rabbit, of which you can see him in my previous post.

After creating and uploading which was a little more drama than I could have used, I caught the bug and created a 2nd tutorial on a balloon flower. Are there any suggestion of a balloon tutorial that you'd like to see? Let me know and I will consider it!

Happy Easter!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter! Personally I got up to not much at all, but had the opportunity to play with some balloons! I made the small display of rabbits in a basket and took it into work for the day, offering the Bunnies free (to a good home of course!). I am happy to say they all found homes. I am considering creating my first Youtube video to show the design of the rabbit, please leave a comment if you would like to see me attempt one.

.: Going Supanova! :.

I'm excited for the up-coming weekend where I will be attending Supanova Pop Culture Expo. Hope to take some photos to share, and am also planning to create my 4th balloon dress. I will also have a little princess with me to join me in the fun!

.: Challenge! :.

Given that I am currently on holidays, I am up for a challenge! The first person to leave a comment, please suggest a balloon sculpture you'd like to see me attempt. I look forward to your challenge..
