Subject: [Puptcrit] Inflating and deflating puppet's stomach on stage - a


Hello All,

   Has anyone had any experience trying to inflate and
deflate a puppet's body part on stage in real time?  I
have a head made from latex (gee, I guess that
explains it all) rather my puppet has a head of latex,
arms of soft foam rubber and upper chest also of foam
rubber. I wanted to attatch a ballon for the stomach
and inflate and deflate it to show the yoyo trend of
many dieters to gain and lose weight quickly. It is
problematic if it is done multiple times as the ballon
must be tied and popping it would make the air come
out too fast. A beach ball does not deflate quicly
enough and does not give the shape I wanted. I am
realkly at a loss. Not of pounds, unfortunately but of
ideas.  Any thoughts, Oh Puppeteer Heroes and Heroines
of mine? I am in awe of all you people and have been
an avid fan of this site for a few years. All the
best.
