Stuck on Wizard of Oz designs

Post by scapovilla on Mon Aug 22, 2011 10:45 pm

Hi, I'm stuck. Every once in a while a job comes in and my brain shuts down. I need to come up with some designs for a huge Wizard of Oz party. i've got designs for the normal sutff, the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion, and of course the Wicked Witch, but other than that I'm stuck. I tried to create the flying monkeys, the guards, but it looked ridiculous. I'm starting to truly dread this party. Dia de los Muertos is so much more fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since my creativity seems to have gone AWOL, I'm hoping you all will shoot me some ideas? ALL help will be seriously appreciated!!!!!!!!!

Thanks in advance,
Shelley

The good witch would be easy and popular - eye shadow, lots of glitter, maybe a crown on the forehead. Definitely do some ruby slippers cheek art with red glitter, and maybe a hot air balloon. I wouldn't worry about secondary characters... no one will ask for those anyway. Does the client specifically want ONLY Wizard of Oz faces? Because I've found that almost always, the kids ask for regular faces like butterflies, etc. They hardly ever want themed faces.

Any easy thing would be a tornado staring at the cheek and going over the forehead. . . .maybe add a little house on top if you wanted something more. The wizard guy might be cool. . . .the part where he is a big green head. The heart the tin man has, the one with the clock might be a cute cheek design. Maybe the apple trees that have faces. . .with the trunk on the cheek, and the branches going across the forehead, and apples with movement lines across the face. I agree with Angie, that it will probably be a spiderman and butterfly day, but it could be super fun. Smile I hope this helps a little! Be sure to post your pics, my little one LOVES the wizard of oz.

Ha... I didn't notice that it was in balloon twisting at all. Oops! I always click on "view posts since last visit" and it never shows the parent category so I never know. Sad

Thank you all SO MUCH!!!!! You all have saved my hide and I'll incorporate every suggestion here. This client throws these massive parties, hiring all the entertainers....the balloon artist, caricaturist, face painter, magician, band.....and they do this every birthday for the grandaughter....for the adults, the client wants only themed designs but kids can get whatever they want. somehow, I just went braindead and you all got me on the right track....so thanks for sharing your creativity:)
