Homemade Bathtub Costume

A fun, homemade bubble bath costume! It's a unique and creative idea that will surely surprise all your friends!! My costume was made from scratch and barely cost me anything. I decided to go with pillow fluff for a more sudsy look.

First I got a cardboard box and I covered it with tape and spray painted it white then I began to hot glue gun the pillow fluff onto the box and I used a strapless white top and glued the pillow fluff onto the top.

I made the shower from a piece of wood I had laying around and a hanger wire and a tin bowl my grandfather had for the shower head. The rest is up to you! You can put little duckies (which I bought for 50cents each) on your tub or even put a bar of soap. To make it look even more realistic you can even wet your hair or put it up in shower cap or a towel wrap.

I got so many compliments on this costume and everyone loved it, not only can it be sexy but it can also be appropriate for a family party!

Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

Coolest Bath Time Fun Couple Costume 28

Coolest Bath Time Fun Couple Costume

My boyfriend and I went as Bath Time Fun Couple Costume for Halloween! I was a loofah and my boyfriend went as my “loofah user!”

I made my costume with a cheap tube dress/swimsuit cover up from Target, 15 yards of tulle, safety pins and a white rope from the curtain department at a craft store. I cut the tulle into 12x12 squares, gathered all the corners of the square and safety pinned all the corners together to the dress in rows. I put the sections of tulle close together and made it really puffy. It took me, all together, about 4 hours to make the loofah costume.

It was a cold October night and we were planning on walking around a lot so I put a long sleeve black shirt and black leggings on and it made the green really stand out. I also tied some leftover tulle to a bobby pin and put it in my hair.

My boyfriend's costume was a last minute idea! He wore a bathrobe and a shower cap!

We got a ton of compliments and had a GREAT time!!

Coolest Homemade Space Shuttle Halloween Costume

Homemade Space Shuttle Halloween Costume

My son wanted a Homemade Space Shuttle Halloween Costume. Space Shuttle? Don’t you mean an astronaut? --No, he corrected me, THE Space Shuttle. So here is the Enterprise—made with a diaper box and a few other boxes cut to fit, including an oatmeal box cut in half for the engine housing.

Other than that I used lots of white silver and black duct tape, painted plastic cups for the engines, and used old shiny wrapping paper for the flames. The hardest part was finding the right fonts for the logos. Of course he already had the space pajamas. Another day he wore this with an orange jacket that I made look like a space suit with labels and a tinfoil ring around his neck (where one would screw on the bubble helmet, I suppose). Stick in on with suspenders and you’re set to go!

I copied your idea and my son wore it for early trick-or-treating last night. Everybody loved it. People were taking pictures and giving him extra candies and we couldn't walk a yard without anyone commenting on how awesome it is. So thank you!

I love this! My son will love it when I show him. I'm afraid that I am not that crafty though. But perhaps will give it a shot. Thanks so much for posting photos.

hello, my son is also requesting to be the actual "rocketship" for halloween and i was wanting to be original and came across your picture. I loved your creativity and that it wasnt the usual kid in a tube with a hole for the face idea. Totally what i was looking for. i was wondering how you fashioned the front end of the rocketship? you said from an oatmeal box? I wasnt sure what shape the oatmeal box was originally before you cut it in half? Or if you could give me some detials on how you made it turn out so well.?

Glad you liked it! The oatmeal box, cut in half, was for the "engine housing" in the back (the curved parts on the top). The end is cups with shiny paper for flame...the front is a funky shape, I just cut a box open and bent to shape and used lots of white duct tape. Lots of black electrical tape too. It was a while back, so I don't remember details, but just bend until the shape looks right and tape it all solidly together! Good luck!

thank you so much

Do you have detailed instructions for this costume? Did you just use tape to get everything to stay?
