Cartoony Inflatable Costumes

These Jaw-Dropping Balloon Costumes are Anything but Poppable

— September 28, 2012 — Special
Created by Jeff Wright, these wearable balloon costumes are anything but fragile.

Made with over 500 twisty balloons -- the kinds that clowns use to make circus animals -- these cartoon and video game-inspired balloon costumes are definitely a show-stopper. The company demonstrates the durability -- surprisingly -- of the wearable balloon costumes by putting one on and literally doing Ninja Turtle-like jumps in it. These outfits are highly detailed and are available in TMNT, Buzz Lightyear, Mario, Yoshi and immobile trains, although I bet the talented company could produce any character you ask for.

If you love balloons and dressing up, these items would be ideal for Halloween this year. Just make sure you don't walk by any pins!
Trend Themes
1. Inflatable Costumes - Wearable balloon costumes that are highly durable may disrupt the costume industry as they provide a unique and fun alternative to traditional costumes.

3. Customized Character Costumes - The ability of the company to produce any character requested indicates a trend towards highly personalized and customized costumes.
