2nd March - Gloria the Hippo

Its Mabel's birthday today, she is one of my nieces and she is 8 years old, yesterday she requested that I make her Gloria the Hippo from the film Madagascar, so Happy Birthday Mabel and I hope you like my attempt.

It seems that most hippos like to do ballet so that was the look I was going for, She is made from 6 balloons, firstly I used a 350 to make her body, then I added her head with another 350, next came her legs which was half of a 160 and then her arms were next from a 260, her hands are the other half of the 160 and then finally the tutu is made from 2 x 160s.
