Have a Elvis and Wizard of Oz theme party next month.

I am an intermediate level twister.

Need balloons ideas that will fit within that skill level which match the theme.

If you have any links to instructions on how to make them let me know.

I am particularly interested in an Elvis balloon, Tin Man, Scarecrow and Dorothy.

Never made human characters before so they may be beyond my skill level.

Thanks,

Bart

If your intermediate you should be able to look at other balloon photos maybe and come up with similar designs?? Dunno...

Here is Don Caldwell with Elvis:

The body, arms and legs appear to be made out of 2 white 646's... Head is blush 350's... Hair on head black 350's.. eyes, and brow are black and gold 260's.. feet are light blue.. belt gold.. seems like a nice design to follow if I was to make one...

Ff you own Robbie Furmans "Lootles" video this would be easy to follow for all the Wizard Of Oz people:

Well maybe I am an advanced beginner then....

If those Wizard of Oz Lootles are intermediate level then I have got a ways to go.

The DVD's I used to teach myself all say intermediate on them, but they are all 1-3 balloon animals usings 160s and 260s. Never made characters that require that many balloons.

I was hoping for something that used 2-3 balloons that would be a scarecrow or tin man.

There is balloon guitar instructions on youtube. It opens up all kinds of possibilities.

I personally like Marks (aka bad to the balloon guy) simple 3 balloon guitar yet effective.

However, not sure if that is what he is asking for.

I saw a picture of yours Mark on balloonhq (two light blue 260's weaved together and a white 350)... Very good hat I have used it twice.
