I was trying to figure out what I wanted to be for Halloween and I decided that the costumes that win are always a little suggestive! One day the idea came into my head that I wanted to be in a shower. Since that has been done so many times, I changed this Homemade Bathtub Costume a lot!
I decided to make myself a fancy claw tub complete with a shower head, tap, a rubber ducky and BUBBLES! I started with a large rubber maid container (as many of my big costumes do!) and I covered it with pipe foam tubing and white fabric! Once that was done I start making and adding all of the accessories. I punched holes and used tons of glue!
For the bubbles I sewed a cut up sheet to a couple of tube tops and covered them with pillow fluff! It was such a fun costume to go out in! Our friends really loved it. We even included our boyfriends and gave them "jobs" to do. One of them was the towel boy, one was the soap boy, you get the idea!
I think what really completed the whole look was the fact that we looked wet! Going to the washroom was quite a bit easier than I thought it would be, all we had to do was undo the belts that were around our waists and drop the tub! We did have to share a stall though, that wasn't a big deal because you couldn't see anything through all of the fluff anyways! I hope you enjoy the costume as much as we did, Happy Halloween!
For this Homemade Bathtub Costume, I picked up a bunch of the supplies from the dollar store. I grabbed the rope bucket from Target for $7. Cut a hole in the bottom of the bucket so that I could wear the bucket. I cut off the rope handles and instead strung ribbon through the existing holes to create suspenders.
I bought a bag of white balloons, from the dollar store, and blew them up to different sizes. I took a needle and thread to attach all the balloons together. Then taped the thread down to the rim of the bucket. I picked up a shower cap, shower puff, rubber ducky and brush from the dollar store as well. I taped down the rubber ducky to the rim of the bucket (would suggest using something like liquid nails next time). I taped up the shower puff to the side and let it hang amongst the balloons. Since I couldn't find a white bucket, I thought about spray painting it white, but instead just made it festive for Halloween and strung some orange Halloween decorations around the tub/bucket.
I wore a towel I had at home with clothes underneath, but also safety pinned it so it wouldn't fall off. And lastly, I wore my slippers on my feet.
Everyone at work got a kick out of my costume and can't wait to see what I come up with next time!!! Thanks for the inspiration to create my own costume!!
