Big Bird

 I don't know about you, but I'm kind of in the mood for a birdseed milkshake. (For real. I'm sure it would be gross but every time Big Bird orders one at Hooper's, I get hungry.)

At 6'6" Big Bird is the tallest balloon sculpture I've made yet. It's a little under 2 feet shy of the real Bird (he's 8'2".) I may try this again one day when I can shoot pictures outside and go for actual size.

I didn't have a stand tall enough, so it took two of us to control the big guy for pictures.


  1. That looks great, but do you have any pictures of his feet? The legs look great!

  2. No Big Bird feet pics--I couldn't fit everything into frame! I'll get all the little details when I do the bigger outside version.

  3. Wow. You've done a lovely job of adding the particular details that make each muppet unique. Thank you for sharing, dear.
