At first I did not know what this was and almost dismissed it, but after looking over the image in a more serious manner, I can say I am highly impressed with the materials used and can respect the level of time and energy used to complete this outfit. It's really fantastic.

Including prototypes and trial runs it took about 15 hours to complete,
I am really glad you like it and appreciate the time and effort that went into it ...

here is a time-lapse video of part of the construction process [link]

Anyways, very nice photo and concept, congrats on the DD :)

Have you ever tried twisting balloons yourself?

Once someone explains and shows you why/how balloons pop and how to twist them without popping them I bet you would be a natural ... There are a number of people I managed to convert from their balloon phobia to a love of balloons over the years, including a few that had childhood balloon traumas ...

teaching people how they pop, why they pop and how to work with balloons so they don't pop, but most of all the person has to want to confront their fear and be brave.

Oooh, I did, but I didn't do it for a long time. But now that I think of it, it was sort of ok with twisting them after a few minutes!
Then again, its big round ballons that disturb me xDDD It has almost no implications in my life tough... except that day when I over-scolded a random kid in front of his parents for kicking a ballon into my food hahaha!!
I feel really stupid talking about this xDDD

it better to talk about these things with someone ... stops them festering and causing bigger issues later in life
