I get asked for a platypus almost once a week, fer-real. So, I've learned to cross an alligator with a duck...

However, last night I got asked to make a 4-humped camel, and was a little dumb-struck for a moment. I made a normal camel, but added the extra 2 humps, and then completed the torso with a parrot body...which actually ended up working quite well. I can't say that I was 100% proud of my on the spot creation, but it got a great reaction.

Anyone else get strange requests lately...and coincidently, what phase is the the moon in this week?

I was asked for a spider in a bird cage once. That was the oddest one, then of course every other kid wanted a spider in a bird cage. I'll tell you this....no one got a dang spider in a birdcage.

MagicSanta,

So true! After the first alien is made, you better be sure that you've got a 100-pack of alien heads in your pouch...cuz that's all you'll be doing for the next 2 hours...I'm sure the same would be true for spiders in bird cages. Smile

Porcupine,

I gave them my card and said that it was an all afternoon project at $125 an hour.

I quit doing the aliens in the middle of a festival (luckily, I can change my menu board anytime I want, it's magnetic!) because I got tired of making 'em.

Last friday a girl asked for a water buffalo.
I am not exactly sure what it was I made for her, but she loved it.

Ralph Dewey does a nice buffalo. It was in one of the balloon magic magazines.

Girlfriend asked for a pegusus last night to be a smarty-pants. It wasn't pretty, but I did it. I'm new to balloon animals, and I find it fun to try and make new things. Girlfriend likes to come in during a practice and rattle off a few new ones for me to try.

I recently got asked to make someone's mommy. I told her that only her grandparents could make someone as beautiful as that. Got a big tip after I made a dop instead!

I forgot to mention that the kid wanted the spider in the bird cage because he thought people would think the spider had eaten the bird.

Thinking about it the brother of the cage kid (the boys and their fathe were in scouting uniforms by the way) asked for something that I had no idea what he was talking about. When I told him that he gave up and left dejected.

Actually the weirdest request I get is for a straight balloon. That's just not right!

That is cool but when a kid says "just a regular balloon" it is kind of sad. Usually the kid looks upset and there is just no imagination or anything, I feel bad for 'em.
