Balloon Review 152 - Character Cuties Vol 2 Space Wars by Corrine Smith VIDEO DOWNLOAD

Available from http://twisterscookbook.com priced $35

This video download is a collection of 13 Star Wars characters. Each model is supplied as an individual video download. The quality of the video and audio is excellent and all these designs are filmed in 'over the shoulder' mode which makes following the instructions easy with plenty of close ups. Corrine is a good teacher and none of these models are particularly difficult to make.

I would think all of these designs will be quick enough for line work / restaurant work...

Lets see what we have here!...

PRINCESS LEIA

This collection of designs include four cutie type characters of Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Yoda and Han Solo. Each of them is perfect for mounting on a headband or for decorating party cups. Once the basic design has been learned then you only require different colour balloons and minor tweaks to achieve the different characters.

Princess Leia uses a 6" blush Q-Link for the head. This could also be made with a regular 350Q if you didn't have any q-links but it will take a little longer to make. You also need to use a raisin to attach the head. The hair buns are quite effective and the final design is instantly recognisable. Easy artwork.

I am most likely to use this design for party cups for birthday parties.

Nice design.

YODA

A cute little Yoda made again with a Q-link for the head in lime green. Whilst not a close likeness to the original Yoda it is still recognisable and the kids love him. A small variation on the previous design. Very usable.

LUKE SKYWALKER

Very similar to the Han Solo design - all that is needed is a change of colours and you have Luke Skywalker. Quick and easy to make - one that will be popular this year.

HAN SOLO

Now you can see how similar it is to Luke Skywalker - I have mounted this one on a party cup so you can see what it looks like.
I'm sure a collection of four Star Wars party cups will sell well. (I have some pre-orders already!)

C3PO

Made entirely from gold balloons this is C3PO. A fairly basic design relying on artwork to make it look like C3PO. Would be OK for line work but to be honest this design is below standard for my professional line work engagements and so I would not use it.

Quick and easy to make if your audience isn't too demanding.

BB8

Really not sure what to make of this one. It was my son that said you should be able to recognise a balloon without having to add loads of artwork. I tend to agree with him. The original version of this design had white feet at the bottom but BB8 doesn't have feet so I mounted on a base for putting on a headband or a party cup. It is recognisable as BB8 but probably not a real-world design for me.

R2D2

A great little R2D2 perfect for line work. The artwork is not too complicated and it could be simplified to make construction faster. The instructions suggest using a grey q-link or a round balloon but they don't actually explain how to make it with a round balloon. I used a round and used a raisin to connect the side onto the legs and twisted a small sidewall bubble to connect the base of the round to the body.

I also added an extra balloon behind R2D2 to hold the legs in place. Technically R2D2 doesn't have this but I just felt the design stayed together better.

It's up to you!

This one actually looks better in real life than in the photo. The instructions are a little hard to see due to low lighting and a dark background in places but you can still follow along OK. I didn't think much of this design until I made it and now I can see it in front of me, I must say it is growing on me. I think for line work this would be a decent balloon.

A variation on some of the existing designs except this has a single 160Q black across the top of the head. This one requires extensive artwork which is easy enough to follow.
