A friend wants to visibly show how a tree is "strangled" by morning glory flowers.
He wants to visibly be overgrown with flowers without a full Las Vegas stage. Any ideas/suggestions??? Anything will help.

Hi TheGiz,

Do you mean your friend wants to have flowers "materialize" like the orange tree does in the movie the Illusionist? If you haven't seen the movie, here's a clip of what I'm talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KEvkYo30rCc

Or if you want something simpler, you could have yourself packed with artificial vines & flowers in yourjacket, vest & shirt. Have a large sheet put over him and while hidden from the audience, he could "release" all the plantation within him. You might need altered clothing to make this quick & easy. Sort of like the quick change artists.

Plastic dollar store vines and flowers and monofilament fishing line is how I'd do it.
