I see there are a lot of Facebook balloon groups, anybody have an idea which ones are worth looking into?

Here's a tiger, panther and spider I learned from the femedlis list. Tweeked the spider a bit with the eyeballs, came out ok.

Nice. I've seen the video. Maybe I should actually learn to make it as it is extremely cool and must be popular.

Hello Shadpoke. It's been a longtime since I've been on here, I tend to stick to Facebook and Youtube these days.
All the best.

Here's my first go at Mr Boma's Gorilla, the proportions are off a bit, but it's a great design because it's fairly easy and everyone seems to like it.

Some folks like to use glue dots - I seem to always end up with more of a disaster when I try to use those so I avoid them!!! LOL

***** Private Halloween Party, October 24, 2015 *****

I currently have 2 Halloween Parties I work every year.  This is my newest one.

***** Ding Dong *****

I arrived and rang the doorbell.  I heard the feet approach a little child peeked out a curtain next to the door and gave me a massive grin and didn't move.  I actually wondered if he would be letting me in or not; eventually he did.  As he was following me around, he handed me a toy skeleton and told me "You are making balloons for us, this is for you!"  I took it and wasn't sure if it was truly for me or if he snagged it from some decorations.  At the end of the night, I told his mom that story and that I couldn't refuse it and she proceeded to tell me that he had indeed bought it for me.  I think that is the first gift I have been given at a party to date to my knowledge!

***** I will pay you! *****

I am twisting up balloons non-stop and two girls proceed to tell me they will pay me in candy for the balloons I am making them.  I told them they didn't have to but they insisted.  After each balloon made, I ended up with one piece of candy.  After awhile two boys came through.  Finished the first balloon and he took the balloon and took on of my candies and ate it right there.  I made a joking comment and he laughed and ran off.  The second child laughed and did the same following my making of a balloon creation for him.  It was fine as I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the candy anyways - not a major candy person here!  Grin

**** Empty Room *****

At one point, suddenly I had no children in the room with me.  I went to investigate to find out I had effectively been replaced with a piñata!  While twiddling my thumbs I noticed a cute little girl dressed up as a kitty cat who hadn't gotten a balloon from me.  Come to find out she was timid and didn't want to have anything to do with the large crowds, so I took the time to make her and a few other timid children balloons.  The poor girl was thrilled to have her balloon until one bubble popped.  She immediately dropped the balloon and decided she didn't like balloons - too loud!

***** Magic Show *****

I am currently attempting to develop a magic show.  I know I am a horrible rookie, but I have to start somewhere and this party told me to go ahead and give it a go.  The funny of the night was the magic milk pitcher.  I was looking for a volunteer so I simply stated "I am looking for a volunteer!"  Hands went up...  "I am looking for a volunteer who isn't afraid to get wet!"  .... a few went down.... "I am looking for a volunteer who isn't afraid of MILK!"  ....  a few hands went down, but over half of the room was still ready to volunteer.  I called the hostess to choose a volunteer for me.  I funneled up a newspaper and told her I would be holding it over her head - if it was to drip, it is going to drip right there (and I touched her head at a specific point - I think I had a few chuckles in the audience).  I started to pouring.  Well, I goofed and some of the milk poured right down the newspaper and she officially had 2 drops hit her head.  Everyone loved it and I was terrified.  Come to find out, sometimes being a rookie magician, isn't necessarily being a bad magician - it just means I have lots to learn! 

***** Getting Control of the Room *****

So, when I first wanted to start the show, I was nervous - the whole room was extremely noisy and for a moment I wasn't sure what to do to gain control of the room.  I quickly remembered, noisy is fun so I simply shouted out "Who is ready for a magic show!"  The kids yelled back and I did this a few more times to get them as loud as can be.  This killed all conversations in the room to include that of the adults!  I would do the same for asking for them to say the magic words. "Say the magic words .....  LOUDER!!! ..... LOUDER!!!!"  While I may have been a rookie in the magic, I think I have some of the interaction methods figured out!!!
