Professional balloon dress maker – have you heard of the term before? I think not!
So here, meet Molly Balloons aka Molly Munyan who will heighten your Christmas mood with her super talent of making a Christmas tree of a different kind — one adorned with balloons. Recently, Molly crafted an 8-and-a-half-ft-tall Christmas tree, which was dressed with 590 balloons. To showcase the bling, she went to the Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri, wearing the Christmassy frock.
“That’s my most so far, by far,” Molly said of her Christmas tree design, as reported by ABC News.
Although it was a giant balloon gown and Molly had to wear stilts to accommodate it, kids were fascinated by the attire.
“I was bored and creative in my parents’ basement when I was like 9-years-old, and I learned all sorts of different crafts, including balloons,” she recalled. “And then I picked it back up just for kicks and giggles when I was almost 15 going into high school and everyone all at once realized, ‘Oh, I could do this as a profession.’ People started asking if I would do parties and I was like, ‘Uh, sure.’”
Yes, you heard that right! The tall Christmas tree wasn’t her first and we certainly hope wasn’t be the last! Molly Balloons’ earlier creative ideas are as amazing as we can imagine. She may have started off at a very early age but the real stint turned into a professional career at the age of 15.
According to Molly, the balloon dresses she makes could be worn, taken anywhere from eight to 17 hours at a stretch, of course depending on their size and complexity.
“They basically take a day-and-a-half, when it’s all said and done, from the first balloon being blown up to the first picture being taken,” she explained.
She further added, “The most difficult part of the dresses is finishing on time.”
Ah, well, the gorgeous dresses are definitely making us crave for more this holiday season, isn’t? I wish I could get one!!
