Creating a Bubble Man costume for your next Halloween party is an easy, last-minute costume idea. It requires few materials and it’s a one-size-fits-all type of garb. Be forewarned, however, wearing this costume ensures that you’ll have party-goers following your around the entire evening, trying to pop your costume.
Things You'll Need
- Roll of bubble wrap, at least 100 feet
- Clear packing tape
Buy a large roll of bubble wrap. You can get rolls of bubble wrap from office-supply stores. Depending on your size, you should buy at least a 100-foot roll. It’s better to overestimate how much you’ll need because you don’t want to run out when your costume is halfway constructed.
Cut a two-foot section of the bubble wrap and set aside. This will be your cape.
Wrap your left leg from ankle to the top of your thigh in bubble wrap. Cover the leg at least three times. Secure the bubble wrap with clear packing tape.
Wrap your right leg the same way and secure the bubble wrap with clear packing tape.
Wrap your waist, stomach and chest with bubble wrap. Secure it with clear packing tape.
Cut a slit in the wrap near your zipper--you’ll want to be able to unzip your pants to use the restroom. Once this costume is on, it can’t come off until the night is over without damaging it.
Attach the “cape” to your back with a piece of clear packing tape.
Wrap each arm individually in bubble wrap. Again, wrap at least three times around each arm and secure with clear packing tape.
Tips & Warnings
- Enlisting the help of a friend will the costume assembly much easier, especially when attaching the cape.
