BROOKLYN - A whimsical creation by a Japanese artist was on display in Brooklyn Saturday.

At Downtown Brooklyn's Ouchi Gallery, artist Emi Jingu debuted a collection of balloon clothing ensembles.

The line includes youthful, playful looks and a new take on the traditional Japanese kimono.

It's the artist's first exhibit in the U.S., and so far has been well-received by Brooklyn residents.

The models who sported the balloon clothing say it's not as uncomfortable as one might think, but they can't sit down or else their clothes might pop.

Each one of the garments took four days to create and assemble, with much time spent inflating the balloons.

The exhibit continues Sunday before it's popped to head back to Japan.
