Collaborations are the best aspect of any creative endeavor, even better when they involve balloons. The 2017 Balloonalicious Balloon Bikini Calendar was the brain child of Tawney B. and Todd Neufeld. They wanted a fun, creative project that would also benefit a worthy charity, the Cure 4 the Kids Foundation. They gathered some of the best balloon artists from around the world to create 12 unique balloon bikini designs. Richard Faverty shot everything in one day and helped design the calendar. Find out more about it here. Calendars are still available.
For my part, I was honored to model a turkey-ini made by the fabulous Chris Cope. When the calendar release party rolled around, I made my very own balloon bikini.
