I was looking for a good Halloween costume this year. I wanted something original and hilarious. I think I accomplished both.

    I like this idea for my nephew who is only 4, what could i use that is light weight to hold up the ball? this is an awesome idea.

    lol, absolutely hilarious.  I think we'll see a lot of balloon boy costumes.  The balloon boy thing was about two miles away from my school.  Now i live in balloon boy city.

    Haha! That's actually funny. Did you stop everything you were doing that day and go watch it?

    Haha, No.  There's always a hot air balloon or two floating around usually.  I just thought it was another balloon.  Then i got home from school and saw the news story about the runaway balloon.

    I live in FoCo as well. I make large solar hot balloons, and I got a lot of calls from worried relatives that day, because they thought it was me. It was hilarious.

    Nice! Very imaginative!

    Brilliant work! This is the sort of fun and whimsical costume that makes Halloween great.

    How imaginative! I would have liked to see a curled moustachio to go with the eccentric aviator get up, maybe a bottle in your bloon weights. Then again, I think a curled moustachio and booze is an improvement on anything.

    Excellent costume! I love it!!
