Title: Dolphin Competition
Post by: Graham Lee on July 15, 2014, 08:36:23 PM
I thought we may try a competition, all you have to do is post a dolphin, any variation etc. Best one will be decided at the end of the month and win a free set of instructions.
Off to find a dolphin I have made in the past to enter but I will not be included in the judging

Here is one, if you want to search on the forum for Dolphins you will get many to look at.

Dolphins are one of the most popular favorite animals in the world according to surveys! I'm looking forward to seeing different versions!

Blimey you don't think I sat and worked out any rules for the competition, how about as many as you like? Is that OK?

Cool, I expected you to have a full set of rules all worked out Graham, all printed up into a 37 page document which has been made available to download in a variety of ways including braille, large print and spoken work :D

Haven't been asked for a dolphin at all... But I do get asked for sharks quite a bit.  Will have a twiddle and twist tonight and she what I can come up with.

Ok here is mine. Sorry it's the only picture I have, and no time at the moment to make another and give him the eyes that he really deserves.

Sorry I didn't get a picture of the dolphin on it's own.

Today is the last day to enter, we might get a flurry of late entries with a little luck and then we have to judge it.
I do have a International judge in place for this competition, and no they are not from Scotland or Wales!

Hi Graham,

Sorry not to have posted earlier, but luckily things have been really busy with events, and balloons for collection.

This is the dolphin I regularly make. It uses 3 balloons, and I timed making it and it takes me 2 mins 50 secs, at a leisurly pace, with a balloon bursting as I made it !!

It is based on a You-tube design, but I can't remember the name of the guy

The judge is in the USA so there is the time difference and also they are working a big festival this weekend.

Yes as stated above we have an International judge in America and there are working a big festival this weekend,
they did look and told me who they liked at 5pm yesterday but we then had two late entries so she has to look again to make a new decision.

Many congratulations to Moonshine, and thank you Jami for the mention  :D

As Dan says, so nice to see such a variety of designs. The one I really liked was Danny's. I love the little splashes. I was at a wedding on Saturday and was using this one on hairbands, and it went down really well  :D
