I often switch colours om request for any of my designs, blue and pink penguin? yep, no problem. I sort of get that they might only have blush 6" q-links but in certain situations you just have to improvise with what you have.

Interesting, I guess they were using printed princess faces? I use a bit of a 350 for my princess face so I use blush or Mocha depending on the princess. This report does remind me of something tho, Whenever I make Jasmine I am never actually sure what colour balloon to use for her skin colour, now if I were to follow Disney then the blush balloon would be the closest match however I did have one customer tell me it was the wrong colour as she would come from the middle east so Mocha would be a better colour.

So now I always ask the person who I am making the balloon for what colour they would like the skin of their jasmine, I hold up the 2 colours and ask them to choose the correct skin colour for jasmine, most of the time it is Blush but sometimes I do get mocha chosen.

On facebook this thread/topic is on a few pages and to say they are getting heated is an under statement.

It does get you thinking though which is good and hopefully why the thread was originally written for.
I think next time I'm out and about it will be fresh in my mind and to offer more choices.

the Problem is that all major princesses are of blush colour, the only 2 that are not are Tiana and Moana (and possibly Jasmine) and its mainly the blush princesses that people ask for, I am still getting asked for Rapunzel, Belle and Elsa and if that is what is popular then so be it. I always jump at the opportunity to make a Tiana or Moana.
