Has anyone ever done or seen twisting done at renaissance faires?? I know balloons aren't exactly era-correct, but I've got an awesome idea for a character.

Not done this myself
Nor seen a twister at one of these either

Jester hats spring immediately to mind
Definitely Swords; Shields; Helmets; Cross/Bows and Arrows

Also the era-correct thing - not going to be an issue
Parents will be pleased to take their kids minds off the tedium of these types of events

Bet there will be bubbles there. Big soapy bubbles. Let's see how the historians 'legitimise' those, whilst ridiculing Balloons. If the organisers or participants get a little bellicose - tell them that they are living in the past

See if the traders there will accept Groats for their wares. Just guessing from my experience, they'll have PayPal and card payment services, as well as current legal tender (Apart from oz of gold)

Have fun and report back

Looking forward to hearing about your character

:)

Maybe set up as an Alchemist who accidentally discovered an early form of latex. Put a bunch of ingredients into a wacky machine and have the balloons come out.

Makes as much sense as wax hands.

Wow, Pete, that's an awesome idea!!! In fact, I'm liking that better than my own ogre idea!
