Inflatable Costumes That will Blow You Away

Everyone loves a good funny costume! We’re totally digging inflatable costumes after the first inflatable dinosaur costume went viral on YouTube. Even though it has been a few years since the inflatable t-rex costume starred in a viral Ninja Warrior YouTube video, the popularity of blow up costumes has increasing exponentially! What makes inflatable Halloween costumes so popular? Is it the bounce when someone walks? Is it the fact that they don't quite look realistic? We'll let you decide when you see our costume ideas in this funny inflatable costume guide!

Most of the media surrounding inflatable costumes has been about adults wearing them, but they actually have some inflatable costumes for kids, too!
