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 sorts of parties.
All over the world, sitting on the gate of Zoos and Parks, you can get vendors selling those traditional helium inflated balloons that each child loves.
Special balloons made for the only purpose to be filled with water and smashed on the floor (or on some unsuspecting victim) are really easy to see in toy shops.
Designers create clothing made out of balloons and top models carry out the catwalk with them, but usually only celebrities will wear the extravagant unpredictable balloon outfits in their galas and parties.
Balloon artists twisting balloons can occasionally be seen in fairs, kids birthday parties, department shop openings, malls, etc.Those balloon artists are employed to live amongst these rubber devices and have learned to use them for other needs. Like everything in life, necessity is the mother of inventive, and balloons have amazing stretching properties. There is absolutely no limit for the imagination.
Tie several long un-inflated balloons together to create a long elastic string. You can use it to hang light clothing, signs, to wrap around a cart or box and display the freshly created balloons, to improvise a tent or parasol, etc.
I have seen the clown´s car´s mirror (which had been a bit wobbly) secured in position using a balloon.
In the event the clown´s pants aren’t tight enough, a handy balloon bring a belt.
Broken balloons are useful to get tied around a box with a lose cover, to seal an open bag of sugar, rice or any staple, basically the same uses as being 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 of the precious tools the balloon artist uses continually, are safely attached with balloons to his odotcj or apron.
An extended balloon could be cut into a large number of slices and used to secure the multiple braids in special Afro hairdos, or fix your pony tail.
I actually 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 was totally covered, then she turned it upside down and tried it as being a vase to hold her balloon creations.
A new bouquet of wild flowers held combined with… a balloon needless to say.
