Well... It's Here....!!!!!!
 
it keeps up with his style for Vol 1, 2 and 3..... but avoiding the big flop of Volume 4 specially with that infamous dessert section.....
 
but this volume 5 is great... the main event are the wrist friends..... just like the ones he taught at his last tour....  also a couple of creepy eye hats. and the mustache specifically made for those of you (and me) who don't know what to do with those 321s....
 
the cute figure is the squirrel.. REALLY NICE..... pure Caldwell...... and a lot of other Caldwellian stuff....
 
and the creepy xtras.... there's like 1 hour long with 3 hats, they are 'hidden' so look for them....
 
just get it, enjoy and make more $$$

   Where did you get the DVD?  I looked here and I looked at T. Myers.  I did not find it.  T. Myers is out of stock, or it has not yet arrived.

I think Don is just devious enough to invent a mythical Volume 4 and then talk about it, just to torment us all.

My copy of Volume 4 got lost in the post ... I believe they are going to issue me with a new copie so I will let you know what it is like when I get it ... however Volume 5 arrvied last week and is awesome ... I love his new modular design system ... it is ... how you say ... ir - wrist - sistable ... :P

The material on it is  going back to the fast line work designs with the exception of the 3 secret Hats and the Squirel

Balloonatic.... you haven't seen Volume 4?????

 
you are not missing anything... don't worry... Volume 5 made up for it... big time.. no wonder they pulled it out of the inventory....
 
now.. Smartypants... you really think Don could do something so evil like that???? even more.. that we, your forum mates, could have so much fun with this hoax???

Hey everyone!

I must confess I was sweating for a few days, but I've finally found a website that still has Don's Mad Hatz and Wild Wearables Volume 4 in stock.  It looks like the DVD has a lot of really unusual stuff that's a lot different than what I usually see from Don. I'll post a full review here once I get it in my hands - SP

Volume 4 was very interesting, slightly different to what you come to expect from Don.

   I can assume that some of you people have gotten your copies of Don's new DVD.  Volume 5.  I got it last week and have watched it twice.  I do not think there is much here that I will use.  I think that unless you are very good with a pen that you will not be able to recreate these sculptures.  He seems to use 3 different colors on most designs. 
   The wrist friends that I had heard about were interesting but I think that all he is doing with them is drawing very cute faces on balloons.  He could just as easily draw very cute faces on pieces of paper and hand those to people.
   There were other designs that were so simple I am surprised and disappointed that they made it on to a DVD.
   I found one surprise figure.  It was a werewolf hat and claws.  It takes Don 45 minutes to make it.  Even if it only took 25 minutes at make at full speed that is way to long for the people I twist for.  I am not sure if there are any other surprise figures.
   I am sorry but I was expecting something like the monkey, lady bug, octopus, or mermaid.  There is nothing on this tape that will make it to my next event.
   This DVD does not have to be in many peoples collection.

Oh, I do not think you found all the hidden extras if you only found the Werewolf Hat!
Which is worth the price of the DVD for that alone!
But there are 3 easter eggs to find!
One Cool and creepy claw hand hat and 2 more Scary Hats All for Halloween!!!
Skull Head/ Bony Hands Hat!!!
Where are they found you ask????????
Check your Titles list in the DVD player menu!
Very useable items on this DVD the wristlets are Great!
I have used the Mustache a trillion times!!!
I say this is a MUST in your Library!!!

Hmmm,, I haven't gotten the DVD yet, but I'm sure that if it's Don Caldwell, that volume 5 will be at least worth a look.   Sorry Warren that you didn't care for it, but Don's set the bar so high on his past releases, that you may be a little hard on him with this new one.  I'll have to check it out for myself before saying anything definitive about it though.

   Thanks for letting me know about the extra figures.  I had to use a second DVD player to find them.  The first DVD player would not play the last two of the hidden figures.
   After watching this new figures I still feel that My above comments ( 2 post above here) are the way I feel.

Just tried to call you to help you find the special hidden surprises!
I mentioned the place to find them is under the menu titles some people had to try it in a computer others tried to find them on different players hooked to their TV but they are hard to get to until you find them!
I will see ya in a few days at Balloon Manor and will show you then if you have no luck on your end.
