Some of the most popular and amusing costumes are the inflatables, and I’m going to show you lots of inflatable fancy dress costume ideas. The beauty of these outfits is that not only are they funny, but they are also unisex and often one size fits all, so there’s no worrying about trying to obtain the right size. Simply step into the costume and inflate using the built-in fan. Please note that you will require 4 x AA batteries to power the fan on most items on this page.
These costumes are particularly ideal for carnival floats and parades.
Inflatable Ballerina Costume
Can you imagine the laughs you’ll get when you turn up looking like this?

In terms of price and customer satisfaction, my top choice is the costume featured here by Airsuits. The customer feedback is very positive.
Inflatable Hippo Ballerina Costume
Well, it doesn’t get much sillier than this does it? A hippopotamus in a tutu is guaranteed to make even the grumpiest person alive smile, at least! The only downside is the price of £45.52 which is a tad expensive.
Inflatable Dog Biting Human Costume
In the real world, of course, a dog biting you on your rear end isn’t funny. But this is damn funny, and a great idea for fancy dress. With its drawstring waist (up to 56 inches), this is an easy to wear costume, and as it doesn’t cover your top half, you won’t have a problem with under arm sweating. The low price of £15.99 is a bonus, too.
