The tail is a 3 finger and 2 finger bubble with the mocha pinch twist
sitting in between these so the tail points upwards on the reindeer.

I used a grey 160 for the horns but a blush would work as well.
I liked the colour contrast so went for the grey.

Inflate leaving 7/8 fingers un-inflated,
make a 3 finger bubble followed by a 1 finger pinch twist.
Make two 2 finger bubbles and twist back into the pinch twist.

Then make a 3 finger bubble followed by another 1 finger pinch twist.

Then make two 3 finger bubbles and twist back into the pinch twist.

You then need a 4 finger bubble and twist this into the top of the head pinch twist.

Make another 4 finger bubble and then a 1 finger pinch twist followed
by two more 3 finger bubbles twisted into the pinch twist.

You then need a 3 finger bubble, a 1 finger pinch twist followed
with two 2 finger bubbles twisted into the pinch twist.
The last bubble on the horns is a 3 finger bubble,
deflate and discard the rest of the grey 160 balloon.

The remainder left over of the black 260 you used for the feet you
can make a 3 finger bubble and split into two for the eyes.

The red nose is just a 1.5/2 finger bubble.

Attach the eyes and nose to the reindeer and
add some artwork for the nose section.

As well as the competition I was able find these reindeer in the wild and take some photos whilst I was out for a walk, the snow seems to have cleared up now it's but still quite cold

Here's mine, finally got round to sorting out the bag of balloons I bought 2 weeks ago and found rudolph at the bottom! Made it just from the picture on the paper, so probably not totally accurate!
