Generally people know what balloons are and what they are utilised for: To make children happy, to color the world, to create the festive ambiance in parties and celebrations, to decorate shops, hotels, wedding parties, communion parties, birthday parties and all types of parties.
Anywhere in the world, sitting at the gate of Zoos and Parks, you can get vendors selling those traditional helium inflated balloons that each and every child loves.
Special balloons designed for the only purpose to get filled with water and smashed on the floor (or on some unsuspecting victim) are really easy to find in toy shops.
Fashion designers create clothing made out of balloons and top models perform the catwalk with them, but usually only celebrities will wear the extravagant unpredictable balloon outfits inside their galas and parties.
Balloon artists twisting balloons can sometimes be seen in fairs, birthday parties, department shop openings, malls, etc.Those balloon artists are used to live amongst these rubber devices and also have learned to use them for other needs. As in everything in life, necessity is the mother of inventive, and balloons have amazing stretching properties. There is no limit for the imagination.
Tie several long un-inflated balloons together to make a long elastic string. It can be used to hold light clothing, signs, to wrap around a cart or box and display the freshly created balloons, to improvise a tent or parasol, etc.
We have seen the clown´s car´s mirror (that was somewhat wobbly) secured in position having a balloon.
In the event the clown´s pants aren’t tight enough, a handy balloon can be used as a belt.
Broken balloons are useful to get tied around a box having a lose cover, to close a wide open bag of sugar, rice or any staple, fundamentally the same uses as a rubber band.
I met a clown who tied his shoes with balloons and left an inflated bubble at both ends for additional effect.
The scissors, permanent marker (employed to paint faces on the animal balloons), the balloon pump, all those precious tools the balloon artist uses continually, are safely attached with balloons to his odotcj or apron.
An extended balloon could be cut into lots of slices and used to secure the multiple braids in special Afro hairdos, or fix your pony tail.
We have seen a second hand old plastic stool converted in a beautiful vase. The clown inflated several long balloons and tied them across the stool till it had been totally covered, then she turned it upside-down and tried it as being a vase to keep her balloon creations.
A brand new bouquet of wild flowers held along with… a balloon needless to say.
