What is the wierdest request you got?
« on: June 04, 2008, 03:16:01 PM »
I get asked to do models I can't do, as I'm sure it's the same for all of us, right? At one birthday party everthing was going pretty well, then a young lad came up & asked for an Axolotls. Oh dear take a look at this link http://images.google.co.uk/images?um=1& ... ls&spell=1

Pretty ugly..the lizard not me :lol:  :oops:

Can anyone make this by the way?

What weird requests have you been asked?

Can help you with that one chubbz!
I don't have a picture but if you take a pink or white heart and either raisin twist or make a bubble in one of the lobes you can attach some 260 ears. Tie a 160 bow to the neck via pinch twist, draw a couple of eyes and you have a playboy bunny!
The funniest thing I got caught with was A: a Henry (which turned out to be the hoover with smiley face) and B: a hedgehog.

Me and a friend today were balloon modelling and she got asked for a castle!

Instead she did the flowers that grew in the castle - which the child accepted!

Thats a good idea actually, if you get a weird request, i've asked them to hang on, do a model & say that it's ******* (whatever they've asked for) in disguise. They seem to accept that as well.....or give you a strange look. :)

I was askerd for 2 bizarre things on the same afternoon.

The first, a little boy, come to me and ask me: "please, can you make a blue duck?" I said yes, then I do the blue body for the duck (the hat of Mark Byrne) and ask him "If the body is blue, which color is the beak?" He looks me as if it was an evidence and say "orange!!". I felt stupid for a moment and say "Yes, I'm stupid, if the body is blue, it's normal that the beak is orange, ha ha ha!!!"

The second, for those who watch the football french championship, a grandma asked me for the symbol of OM (Olympique of Marseille). But I don't watch football, i don't like that, and I said "What is it look like?" She said "a white O with a blue M inside". Then I did my best to make something looks like she wanted.

Pamela Anderson. I had to tell the person asking that I didn't have big enough balloons. Hehe. But it did really happen, and that was my quick wit reply.
I got hired through my agent once for a clown job in central London a few years back, and it was supposed to be a for a birthday party. Something got crossed by the hirer, and it turned out it was for an adult crowd. Anyway, I ended up making some pretty X-rated balloons that night. I won't mention what here, but had to flow with the show, after travel time, cost of travel, and getting all dressed up for the occasion etc. Just had to tell the misses when I got home that it was a nice birthday party. HA!
