Pop! out of safety zone

Inspired by my story of childhood balloon phobia, Pop! out of safety zone is a collection about embracing and recovering from the fear with balloons. With the humorous and surreal narrative, each piece of the design presents the imaginative and interactive ideas between the wearer and the balloon. I apply lively comedy ‘scenes’ for each design including "balloon companion", "trophy ring and necklace for celebrating balloon phobia award", "balloon monster" and "balloon earplug". My goal was to be able to embrace with the balloon that make the balloon as a recovering feature in the collection and also try to empathize with the audiences as well as the wearers, encourage them to play with their fear.
