Day 346-365: The End

I know... I"m really late this time.
Please don't yell at me.

I swear I made the finishing posts last year. I remember making the posts all the way up till Day 365.
I was informed that when you go to the blog it ends at day 345... I have no idea why.

Honestly, I can't remember what designs I'd posted the first time, so I'm going to put up some newer designs also.

These 20 designs are going to get me caught up to Day 365. And I'm considering the project finished.

However, if you still want to see more designs from me, you can check out my business website.
www.entertainmentwithatwist.com
I'm working on sorting all the images I've taken of my balloons over the years into categories and I'll have a gallery on my site for people to go through.

Give me some time to finish sorting all the images... I've got a lot to look over.

Now for the last posts for this blog.

I'll say a little bit about each design.. I won't be listing the individual days.



 This guy here wanted me to make a balloon Batman for him, but it was to busy for such a detailed design.


We compromised with this. I made him a Batman cape he could wear.







As Spring started showing signs of coming around, I started making more Spring related designs.


Here is a fun sunflower I made to greet guests visiting one of my restaurants.







You know I love making the balloon dresses. And this time was no different.
The event was a charity casino night, and I was asked to make a dress inspired by The Queen of Hearts.



















Here is a quick attempt at She-Hulk.
I've never been asked for her before, so it was fun to come up with a way to do her hair and costume.



I did a charity bowling event, and I thought it would be fun to make a bowling centerpiece.

This girl asked me for a seahorse hat. It was such an interesting request I had to give it a shot.

If you're a balloon twister at least once you've hat someone say "Make me a bycicle clown!"



This guy asked me to make balloon candy corn.
How could I say no?



While playing around with some of my less standard shaped balloons I started making some little critters.
I enjoyed drawing different faces on them.



Here is my newer reindeer design.



I took a sculpture course last semester, and for my final project I made some balloon furniture.



I was going through a bird phase for a couple weeks. Here is a parrot on a perch that I threw together.

Here is a big ol' goose that one of the servers at a restaurant asked me for.



Valentines Day means I'm making Cupid.
I like the new design for the lil' guy.



Here is another one of the little critters I'd been playing with. It used even more of the non standard balloons.



I went to go see Evil Dead: The Musical. This guy was the actor playing Ash.
I was bummed that I couldn't get a picture of him holding the chainsaw in his costume... but her was really excited when I told him he could keep the balloon.



I found a picture of one of the hats I made for a local baseball game on the website for the team.

When my friends had the baby shower for their first child, I made a fun centerpiece for my wife to take along as an extra gift.


Another balloon dress I built. 




























Alright.
I'm sorry for the delay in getting this all finished.
I really did think that the posts were all up here.


I want to thank all of you that were following this blog for so long.
I was happy to see that it's still getting a large amount of page views even though it seemed that I'd abandoned it.


You all showed me some great support while I undertook this challenge I set for myself. I wouldn't have kept posting if there weren't people looking at it.


Thank you.

  1. Covering the ceiling with balloons works really well if you're decorating indoors. It's cheaper to buy either a one-time use helium tank from Target or Walmart and buy your own balloons than it is to have a party store make up enough balloons to cover your ceiling.

  8. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having
    a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

  9. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure
    of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
