Featured Unusual Halloween Costume Ideas
I thought of this unusual Halloween costume idea a few years ago but never tried it. My daughter has been winning the costume contest of our church for the past four years because of my home-made costumes. However this year a lot of people told me that their costumes would top hers so I knew I had to pull out all stops. (Smile) I came to this sight to see if there were photos of others who tried to create the bathtub look and my light bulb began to flicker. I just knew I didn’t have $50 to dedicate to the project.
Materials I used: 60 white latex balloons, shower cap, bath time bucket which doubles as the Trick or Treat basket, bucket accessories, sponge, empty bottles, soap, Munchkin inflatable baby bath, spool of heavy duty yarn/ twine (found in my utility drawer) and bottle of bubbles. The more balloons the better! Hang a few balloons over the side to create a sudsy overflow. I inflated the 60 balloons.
Cut a whole in the bottom of the inflatable rubber ducky baby bath. It inflates in two sections so cutting the bottom out did not affect the sides. I cut the whole small enough that it would be a snug fit around my daughter’s waist and she wouldn’t have to hold it the entire time. Also I was sure not to cut out the drain hole in the bottom of the tub. (This will be used later) I tied the balloons to the string (approx. 1.5-2 inches apart) so the string wouldn’t be visible.
I tied the balloons around her body being sure to fill all the gaps. There is a small hole in the bottom of the duck’s rear end. I ran twine through that hole over her shoulders and through the drain hole (like suspenders) for extra support. A little blue eye shadow glitter make up and bucket filled with bath time accessories. Slippers would work well but I was on a low budget so I just tied balloons around her ankles.
Finishing touch: Occasionally I’d blow bubbles behind her to make the costume complete. She won the contest for the fourth year for “originality.” If done properly this unusual Halloween costume will win the heart of crowds anywhere. Hope this was helpful. Good luck.

For this unusual Halloween costume, I bought a large white planter that will be able to fit your body. If you can’t find white, buy the lightest color and spray paint white.
Drill holes and attached rope or webbing to make shoulder straps. Drill holes all around the upper part of planter. Insert blown up iridescent balloons, the knotted end should just fit in the drilled holes.
Wear a swim suit underneath and a towel around you neck. Wear slippers. I carried a scrub brush and wore a shower cap.
There is so much more you can do to make this an unusual Halloween costume. We even pull-tied a shower head to the planter by bending a garden hose attachment we had in the basement. Watch out, people will want to pop your bubbles.

For this unusual Halloween costume, we used about 80 white water balloons and blew them up with an air compressor. We Attached the balloons with safety pins on the inside of her sweatshirt and then took a laundry basket and turned it into a “tub” by covering with white poster board. We then attached white curly gift-wrapping ribbon to serve as suspenders. Lipstick and glitter on her cheeks topped it off.
You can add a scrub brush, shower cap, rubber boots and duckie and you are set!
This costume took an hour to blow up balloons and attach them with two people. Tip: remind your little one to go potty before putting on costume ! ;)
