This was my eight year old daughter's idea. We took an inexpensive shower curtain and hooks, hula-hoop, shower brush, lots of silver air-duct tape, cardboard tubes, empty soap box, small hand towel, saran wrap and tinsel.
She wore a shower cap, mud face mask (green face paint),a pink turtle neck and leggins, finished off with shower shoes(filp-flops).
First we wrapped the hoop with air-duct tape(u can use duck tape too), attached the paper tube, covered it with the tape and added a funnel shape cone (we found silver paper at the craft store that worked perfect!) and then taped the clear tinsel around the inside for the "water".
We made the 2 straps to hold it on with the tape also. With the shower curtain we cut and hemmed it, hung it on the hoop, make sure the opening is in the front so she could trick-or-treat in it. Then just added the accessories. She carried the bath brush, we attached the towel over the "shower rail", used the saran wrap for bubbles and attached them all over,and painted the soap box, wrote "SOAP ON A ROPE" on it and attached it to the shower head with string.
She won lots of costume contest and had lots of fun-getting "Caught in the Shower"!
My son went as a shower. For this homemade shower Halloween costume idea, we started with 2 hula hoops and 4 dowel rods. We held a hula hoop over head and attached 4 dowel rods going straight down to the other hula hoop about knee height. We wired it together then wrapped it in duct tape.
We used wrapping paper tubes to make the shower head, wrapped in duct tape, attached to 2 different size styrofoam bowls inside each other for the top (painted silver) with silver pipe cleaners poking out for the "water" . That was attached to the top and bottom hula hoop.
We attached belt strapping to the back two dowel rods to strap it on his shoulders and one down low around his hips. Added shower hooks and curtain. For a flesh color top, I could only find "muscles" at a costume shop. Wrapped his lower half in a towel and put a shower cap on his head. He held a scrubbie. Voila!!! A shower!
My daughter came to me a few days before Halloween and told me she wanted a bubble bath costume. I wasn't so sure how I was going to pull this off. I went to Walmart and bought a rope handled laundry basket and went to the dollar store and bought the rest of the accessories including: rubber ducks, back scrubber, shower poof, balloons, shower cap and screw in hooks.
We went home and cut the bottom out of the basket, screwed the rubber ducks to the front edge, put the hooks on and hung the scrubber and poof, filled some tulle with balloons and draped around the tub using string to attach to the tub through poked holes, and made suspenders out of elastic covered in material to hold it on her shoulders.
She wore a simple leotard with ballet shoes. This costume won every costume contest entered even at pageants cost no more than $10.00 and she loved it. We hope you do too!
From the movie "The Karate Kid". I had always loved the scene where he went as a shower. It was a little difficult to fabricate.
Materials used for this shower costume: Irrigation Piping, air duct tape, duck tape, plumbing pipes, Christmas tinsel, wooden rods, wooden stick, shower curtain, shower organizer, loofahs, shower cap, bath towel, mp3 connected to portable speakers with song downloaded of splish splash.
The piping I made into a hula hoop. covered it with air duct tape. Attached the pipes to create the spout. Stablelisers and a handle inside. Attached the curtain and inside my son wore a inflatable lifesaver with a rubber duck on it.
We attached the speakers and played shower songs. It was so cute. He would say "Do you mine" when he would slip it down below his face. It was such a funny costume.
This costume took a lot of work to make. The bubble bath has different steps in the project of constructing this costume. We took a big blue bucket and cut leg holes. A white shirt with white balloons as bubbles! A shower cap and rubber duck finishes the costume.
