Fan Makes Life-Size Version of Solid Snake Entirely Out of Balloons

Becoming friends with a balloon artist is always a smart decision; case in point: this ridiculous life-size version of Solid Snake made solely out of twisting balloons. Balloon artist Bruce Carr’s friend was having a birthday, and instead of twisting him a mere toy poodle, he crafted the masterpiece seen below. We’re not sure exactly how many balloons it took to construct, but we imagine that there’s a Party City somewhere out of blue balloons.

Considering it’s construction, it’s quite life-like, complete with a grey bandana and eyeballs. The realism of it almost makes it creepy — something that if it were standing in your hallway at 1:15 AM would trigger cardiac arrest.

Quite honestly, it puts every other balloon artist to shame. Somewhere there’s a guy with suspenders and an iPad cursing the name Bruce Carr — after all, somebody is bound to ask him to make a Solid Snake — we know we will.

    The balloon rose on the hat is a nice touch.

    Those feet look like rather intricate works of art in and of themselves.

    Just imagine it popping. You ears will probably go out for an hour. Well….looking at it, it doesn’t look like something that’d give out a lout satisfying pop
