The head piece frame was made by welding 1/4 inch aluminum rod. Bent and shape to fit the body perfectly.
Black fabric was used to cover the frame from the inside to cover the back of the head.
using a white color pencil tracing the frame to make a templete and last stitch it with wire because it is very thin strong and almost unnoticeable.  

Step 2: Dome fill with wate

2 acrylic domes 14 inch
double sided tape 
and epoxy

once the dome is sealed with the epoxy, the dome can be filled with water to create the illusion that the person is actually under water after it is attach to the aluminum frame.
a smaller piece of grey duct tape was use to close and seal the home simply because it is strong enough and seamless a possible.  

Step 3: Wire-ring the black light led's

5 black light LEDs were use around the dome because some of the make up glows in the dark.
the batteries were solder together and strap outside and on the back of the head piece for easy acces: then it was painted black to camouflage it completely.

Step 4: Attaching the bubble gun

The bubble gun was sinply strap to the back of the frame from the inside and cut a hole on one of the side ring for the bubbles to escape freely.it was also slightly painted black to conceal it a little since it was attach to the inside of the headpiece. 
since the bubble gun needed to have the trigger pull in order to work it could not be wired to a simple button. instead a bicycle brake line was used to make it work.

Simply brilliant!
Why don't the domes fog up? Cool idea, love the bubbles, too.
where did you get your domes?
Love this costume!!! Voted and Favorited
That looks awesome! Do you happen to have a clearer picture you can put in the intro step?
Fantastic design, yet rather simple. I like the headpiece as well as the water illusion.
Did you use hair gel or something like that to make your hair appear wet?
