A some of you may know I am also a Balloon Artiest as well as a magician. A friend of mine is shipping off to college so I decided to give him a bit of a surprise. This is a life size balloon Zoidberg from Futurama. It took about an hour and a half to build and he loved it.

Well if you figure that Fry is an average size male, and Zoid is about the same height as him... it wouldnt be that hard to concieve.

Wow, thanks everyone. Glad to see you like it. I hope to do more big projects in the future but you really need a reason. Some motivation. Well I figured I would post another big one I made earlier this year. It is a St. Patrick's day hat that came in at over 100 balloons and about 3 and a half hours of work. I might have posted it a while ago but here it is.

In fact, the pics you posted are probably the coolest balloon sculptures I've seen since I had a friend that made a stripper on a pole using balloons.
