One balloon sculptor made a girl’s day when she asked him to build a machine gun.
This guy went above and beyond the call of duty when a girl asked him to build a gun out of balloons just like in Halo. After methodically twisting the balloons into shape, he made a complete master chief costume. He did build her a gun, but also the helmet and belt, complete with a grenade hanging off it.
The best touch is the headset microphone that he managed to work in. The only balloon sculpture I ever managed to do was just some kind of stupid-looking link sausage thing. If there was an award for being awesomely geeky, this guy would certainly win it. He’s obviously paid attention. Maybe he plays a lot of Halo in between balloon-twisting gigs?
If he made a balloon Master Chief costume out of bacon, the Internet would blow up in an explosion of awesome.
Here’s a post on a robot that uses a balloon to pick things up instead of making cool stuff out of them. 32 Amazing Anatomy Designs for Geeks features a balloon animal.
