Fluorescent Lightbulb Costume

ECOWEEN: Light It Up in a Fluorescent Suit

Dressing up as an eco-friendly concept can be tough, but this one is sure to light up the face of your wee one and the people passing out treats — a fluorescent light bulb! Shed some light on a cool and growing trend by putting a face in it.

What you will need:

  • White balloons
  • White shorts, shirt, and tights
  • Headband
  • Safety pins, glue gun or thread and needle

How to get the look:

  • Blow up about 30 small white balloons.
  • Take a pencil and draw a cascading spiral design on an old white tee.
  • For a quick and easy way, use a hot glue gun to secure the balloons to the line. To avoid popping the balloons, make sure you apply the hot glue on the base below the tie off. Or, if you want to keep the shirt glue free, you can stitch the balloons on or pin them on for easy removal. It should look like a spiral of white balloons when all are finally attached.
  • Take the headband and glue six balloons to it.
  • Put your child's clothes on including the balloon adorned top.
  • Place the headband on for the coup de grace.

I think my son would want to play with the balloons. But it is cute. And what a cute tot in the picture.

Not only do the balloons pose a major choking hazard but they also cause serious allergic reactions in many people. My eyes actually swell shut when I'm exposed to latex! Far from a great costume...

Sorry to be negative but balloons are a major choking hazard. They will all end up in the landfill after this eco-friendly costume has been used.
