Got Balloons?

If you are looking for a last minute, quick to put together costume, try balloons. There are many different costumes that can be made by starting out with a plain sweat suit, or long shirt and tights or leggings and balloons.

Bunch of grapes: use either green or purple round balloons and pin (stick the pin through the little tail left from trying it closed) them to your clothing

Bag of Jelly Beans: Get a large clear plastic bag, cut out arm and leg holes, fill with colorful oval shaped balloons and tied the neck closed.

Gumball Machine: Same as the jelly bean bag, except use round balloons

Bubble Bath: Pin various sized white balloons to your clothes and carry a rubber duckie and back brush or other shower item. Wear a shower cap and pin balloons to that too

If you have the time and want to get really creative, make your own ball gown out of balloons. A simple dress can be made by pinning colums of balloons together and using ribbon to hold them in rows, to form a skirt section or go even more intricate like those shown here
