I'm back and what I fully believe recovered from my crazy previous weekend. Want to know why? I was twisting balloons at a Pop-Culture Convention known as Supanova. I was sponsored to appear by the Star Wars club I am apart of, Novus Ordo Australia. The balloons were given away free as promotion for the club, but also a great way for me to meet new people and show them what is possible with balloons!
For my stand, I edited pictures of some of my favourite balloons I have twisted, printed them out in A3 at OfficeWorks, cut them out (you might be able to tell... I love rounded corners!) and laminated them. They were not the balloons I was offering, but it didn't stop some people asking for them! (I did relent ever so slightly on 3 occasions... but shhhh!)
|My costume is that of a Pink Imperial Officer|
I offered a variety of designs, namely: lightsabers, Princess Leia, R2D2, Han Solo and a Yoda or two. I was prepared to make other designs, however once people saw Princess Leia.... There was hardly any contest as to which was most pop-ular! Lightsabers though were also fun and not only that, quick and a crowd-pleaser!
I wanted to share with you some of my favourite pictures from the weekend...
|Three great girls with R2D2, Han Solo and Princess Leia|
|When the store was all nice haha (I shared a table also)|
|The Leia balloon... 2nd day|
I decided that I wanted to twist a balloon version of the character voiced by my favourite guest of the weekend, Dan Green. He thought it was fantastic, which in turn made me very happy indeed!
|Balloon Yami-Yugi! I was really proud of him, got a fantastic reaction by fans!|
|Me and Dan Green! Voice actor for Yami Yugi (see photo above!)|
I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures from my weekend. I do have more... Let me know if you want to see them!
It was a great experience, and I'm convinced that I need to do it again... one day ;) Look out for my next post.... coming up soon (today even! hehe)
