You know you should have stayed home when you are barely adequate as a twister and your first request is for a hyena and the next table asks for a platypus !  My first thought was to phone call to Bonnie !

LOL qwinckly I know the feeling - my first request on Sunday was for a Wolf - I got away with making a version of Ken Stilmans speed twisting head and adding fangs ala Patricia Bunnings sabre tooth tiger - no picture I'm afraid but I shall have to try and recreate it and post it

Oh I have often strange demand on balloon.
Someone asked me a joystick. (I made that)
One day a child asked me a chicken ! I said : "Don't you want a duck in place, it's more beautiful", and the child said OK !
Another day, I make a spiderman for a child, another said : "Do you want to make me batman". I had not the balloon to do that so I simply said : "Sorry, batman has gone on hollidays !"

I got asked for a rocket yesterday - so out came a 646! I added 160 flames and art work with his name "Harry 1" on the side. He was pleased, & so was I.

I often boast that I have never had a request I could not do, and this is true.  This brings up some weird requests from people trying to challenge my skill.  Trying to remember some of the weirder ones, I have made:  A hot dog with ketchup and mustard, a twin towers hat (pre 9/11), a bikini for a girl, a sweater for a girl, a bra (all clothing is wearable and fitted), Ronald Reagan, Madona,the person asking for the balloon on a few occasions, a beautiful woman for a man with his wife, a girlfriend for a boy with his girlfriend, a wolverine from x-men slashing through a football(soccer for anyone not in the us) for a game that took more than 100 balloons,  a liger, unicorn, skunk, the Olympic symbols, a shark eating a man and many more I'm sure.  I think the weirdest one of all would have to be a toilet though, especially because I was making balloons at a restaurant.
All of these request I made up on the spot and to the satisfaction of the customer, usually I just get "wow, you really can make anything".

I got a strange request yesterday! A little boy asked for..........Garlic!
After I  made sure I heard correctly and got over the surprise, I made him a garlic bulb from a white round with 160 leaves sprouting out of the top and drew on a smiley face. He loved it and so did his parents!
You just never know what you are going to get asked for :lol:

Quote from: "Danny the Idiot"
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!

What is so weird about that?

I got asked for a fire hydrant. It didn't turn out half bad... the people at least recognized it as one :o) The boy and his grandmother count them when they are driving around. I have no idea what their obsession is with fire hydrants!
