Does anyone have a pic of a cheerleader - modeled from balloons, of course. I'm gonna try to make this for a party I have tomorrow, I have some ideas and I'm sure I will come up with something nice. But a pic or two would be nice, as inspiration.

Well, it's past time now, but I hope you got something. I had nothing to offer, other that to suggest pom poms made of uninflated balloons. I wouldn't know how to make a skirt, but a 6 petal flower, the way Don Caldwell does the ballerina hat would be my first choice. I have no idea how big a figure you were talking about, perhaps you meant something bigger.

Thanks for the thoughts Revs. I did end up using uninflated, cut 260's for the pompoms. I had no real sources or examples to follow on this, so it turned into a great learning experience and a nice challenge. I felt proud because it was completely my own design, and everyone loved it.

It was very empowering - now I feel like I don't need a book or DVD in order to create designs. I'm an Art School graduate, so that helps when I am twisting. I'm getting much better at "seeing" a finished design in my head, and then being able to translate that image into reality.

Get the Lootles dvd. You can make a girl Lootle in the team colors and add pom-pons or a 'Go Team' banner.. A little pen work and you have the team logo on her chest.
