MLP Season 5 premier Balloon Bridge scene by NoOrdinaryBalloonMan
MLP Season 5 premier Balloon Bridge scene
Featuring Party Favor, Double Diamond, Sugar Belle, Night Glider and Everyone's favorite socialist Starlight Glimmer.

Created Entirely out of balloons! This took about 7 hours to make using several techniques in balloon twisting including double stuffing the balloons to create the best shade to represent Starlight Glimmers unique color. If you look closely you can see the cutie marks in balloon jars on the cart trailing behind Starlight Glimmer. I Hope everyone is as excited as I am about this new season! This is a small preview to what I will be making at the Grand Brony Gala in Tampa Florida this July. I will be creating an entire scene with even more ponies at a grander scale that you see here.
Balloon Buckbeak Cosplay by NoOrdinaryBalloonMan
Balloon Buckbeak Cosplay
I attended Megacon during the weekend and created possibly one of my largest cosplays to date, Buckbeak the Hippogriff from Harry Potter. It took me 20 hours to create and 3 1/2 hours to assemble and repair once I got to Megacon. It was a lot of fun seeing everyone there and actually get to cosplay with my lady! I hope to see everyone at future conventions! 
Hello everybody!

I can honestly say that a lot of wonderful things have happened in just these last few weeks I have been given a few new commissions (hopefully they may lead to more potentially you guys can help out as well) and I have made many new friends! I am also now Seasonal at Disney and able to do more stuff with balloon art and keeping in contact with all of the new people i have met! I met so many wonderful balloon artists at the Florida Super Jam and I cannot wait to see more people at the upcoming Cons i will be going to! I also have new oppertunities coming to me with making a new Dinosaur related show coming later this year where I will be teaching kids at conventions, schools and resorts about dinosaurs through the use of puppetry, animation and even a balloon animal or two! I also have many big balloon cosplays planned for this year including a Metal Gear, a colossus from Shadow of the Colossus, Aku from Samuri Jack, Zero from Megaman X and even a character from Zone of Enders! If anyone has not seen it my Balloon ?Solid Snake has offically been made into a meme now… and I have a dance video of me in the darkside cosplay!…

Well I hope that the rest of this year will be a wonderful year indeed and make sure to watch out because I think I have been seeing a super tall dark shawdowy figure in my room lately... I hope its not Slenderman who is out for $20!

I want to take time to thank you for coming to my page. Hello my name is Bruce Edward Carr and I am “No Ordinary Balloon Man”. There are many mundane balloon twisters who produce the same unoriginal balloons monotonously. With enthusiasm, I am a Balloon Artist. Using my skill and combining my lifelong passion for performing, I transform air and latex into remarkable sculptures for your entertainment. I am able to fabricate a near limitless number of balloons while I amuse patrons with singing, puppetry, impersonations, comical dancing, and educational facts. I love to make people smile; I do so not as an amateur but as a professional with four years of experience working with qualified entertainment companies such as Twisted Artz, Puppet People, and in Savannah, Georgia, the Savannah Community Theatre. Being a professional also means that I am not a liability to my clients; I’m insured by The World Clown Association® and as a Professional, I don’t clown around when it comes to safety. I use Qualitex® Balloons - A high class, environmentally friendly and strong product. As an expert balloon artist I regularly serve a multitude of restaurants, parties, corporate events and I am a proud Disney Cast Member, in which I have been honored with several awards for providing excellence in guest services. My work has also been featured on a host of websites and even nationally on Cartoon Network. I am also cost effective and have parties which can serve any budget, no matter how big or small. If you want an entertainer who will level up your next event from an ordinary occasion into an extraordinary celebration, without breaking the bank, No Ordinary Balloon Man is your balloon man!

I am originally from Savannah, Georgia and I have always had a love of history and entertainment which lead me to attend Armstrong Atlantic State University and graduate Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Theatre. While studying to obtain my degree I honed my skills at entertaining and making people smile with local professional organizations such as the Savannah Community Theatre’s murder mystery show Who Wants to Kill a Millionaire (featured on Samantha Brown), Puppet People (National Touring Puppetry Company), and Silly Dilly the Clown. I even completed an internship called the Disney College Program which guaranteed me a position with the largest entertainment company in the world once I graduated that I still hold today. However, with all the professional jobs and training I have had as an actor, character performer (mascot), puppeteer, and singer, one skill that I have obtained combines all of these skills and has allowed me to make more people smile than I ever thought possible, this talent is being a balloon artist.

Hello everyone thank you so much for wishing me a Happy birthday, it means so much to me to know that there are so many people who care about me. I have been very busy with preparing for a convention that I made 4 large balloon sculptures, was in a play, made balloons for kids and adults alike and even do a panel! It was a lot of work but I am now done with all of it! I had a truly wonderful time!
