VERY NICE!!!

When I see a project like this I don't think anyone realizes the quality and real time put into this type of art.

To really appreciate what you have done I would ask....


How many hours have you tinkered with this?

How many balloons?

Over ten. No idea. The only bag I moved into a second hundred of was white 260's. New video up:

Thanks Jay.

Definitely my favorite piece I've done yet. I think the fact that he is a toy makes it easy to really capture him in balloons. I love the way it pops. I got great reactions while out tonight, though unfortunately only a second place finish. I guess tonight was art for art's sake.

Ten hours?

Yeah, I'd say around 10-12 hours. It's mostly experimentation and trial and error.

2nd place?!?! How undressed was the young lady that won? And, speaking from experience, how do you deal with the d-bags with cigarettes and no sense of public decorum?

Sammy et al. I came in 2nd both nights. I am a little surprised because I think this is my best costume yet, but it says something about the competition (who put in many more hours than I did on their projects). I wasn't given a fair shake on Friday, so that was a bummer. Last night was a well run contest and it was a pleasure to compete. I had won there the past 2 years ($2400 total), so I still have a pretty good record with the 2nd place finish. The novelty might be wearing off.

In 4 years of doing this I have had very little problem with jerks. I'm at huge contests, so people understand and appreciate the work I put in. I try not to walk around too much, so I can avoid hitting people in the face by accident and inciting their rage. Every once in a while a drunko will grab a balloon or something, but usually one of their friends quickly intervenes because they realize how wrong it would be for them to pop my costume.

As far as cigarettes, no smoking allowed.

So Jeff, you want to fly to Florida in January and make that costume for me to wear in the Disney half marathon? You could stick around for Florida superjam the next week.

I'll probably just do the wings from David Benion's DVD, which is a great fast version. I can probably actually run in it.

Now that Twist & Shout has a costume division, I definitely think you need to be there and crush the competition!
