This Tardis or “Twisted And Radically Designed Inflated Structure” was constructed out of 250 balloons. Starting at Chris “Flip” Florey’s home and then finished in the lobby of the Bangor Public Library in Bangor Maine. It took him about 12 hours from start to finish. Flip has been an award winning balloon twister for the past 15 years.
In addition to the Tardis you might notice a balloon Dalek and a red Fez on Flip’s head in some of the photos. I believe this Tardis proves that the Tardis’ own chameleon circuit has a sense of humor from time to time. Materializing next to a balloon twister in balloon form is one fun way to make an entrance. Not some boring Grecian column or wing backed chair. Luckily no small children were hurt in the materialization.
All this week we are counting down the seven finalists in the Where’s The TARDIS contest with the grand prize winner revealed during the Saturday BBC America broadcast of ‘A Good Man Goes To War’. The grand prize includes all 47 years of Doctor Who *plus* an exclusive premiere screening in their hometown!
