Generally everyone knows what balloons are and what they are used for: To make children happy, to color the world, to create the festive ambiance in parties and celebrations, to embellish shops, hotels, wedding parties, communion parties, birthday parties and all kinds of parties.
Anywhere in the world, sitting at the gate of Zoos and Parks, you can find vendors selling those traditional helium inflated balloons that each child loves.
Special balloons made for the sole purpose to become filled on top of water and smashed on the floor (or on some unsuspecting victim) are easy to find in toy shops.
Fashion 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 often be observed in fairs, kids birthday parties, department shop openings, malls, etc.Those balloon artists are employed to live amongst these rubber devices and also have learned to utilize them for other needs. Like everything in life, necessity is definitely the mother of inventive, and balloons have amazing stretching properties. There is no limit to the imagination.
Tie several long un-inflated balloons together to produce 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.
I have seen the clown´s car´s mirror (which had been a bit wobbly) secured in position using a balloon.
If the clown´s pants aren’t tight enough, a handy balloon can be used as a belt.
Broken balloons are of help to become tied around a box with a lose cover, to close a wide open bag of sugar, rice or any staple, fundamentally the same uses being a rubber band.
I met a clown who tied his shoes with balloons and left an inflated bubble at both ends for further effect.
The scissors, permanent marker (utilized 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.
A lengthy balloon may be cut into lots of slices and used to secure the multiple braids in special Afro hairdos, or fix your pony tail.
I have seen a second hand old plastic stool converted in a beautiful vase. The clown inflated several long balloons and tied them round the stool till it had been totally covered, then she turned it upside-down and used it being a vase to hold her balloon creations.
A fresh bouquet of wild flowers held along with… a balloon needless to say.
