You’ve probably seen people wearing them in recent years, bouncing around and having a good time. Sure, they’re silly, but that’s the fun of it! You’re bound to have some good laughs when you’re rocking one of these. You might be wondering how they work, or what kinds of inflatable costumes you can get. If you find yourself asking these questions, read on! We’re here to answer all your inflatable costume questions!

How do inflatable costumes work? 

You probably have a lot of questions about inflatable costumes: Are they loud? Will I get hot in them? How much can I move around in one? How many kinds are there? We hear you, and we’re here to help!

Your first question is probably “How do these things even work in the first place?” It’s pretty simple! Inflatable costumes come with a battery-powered fan that sucks air into the costume. Stretchy bands at the wrists, ankles, neck, or waist keep the air from leaking out. The costume stays inflated as long as the fan is on. If the fan breaks, though, your suit will deflate. No one wants to walk around in a wrinkled mess of a costume. You can get a new fan here and keep the party going! Since we’re talking about the fan, you might have a few questions about it and how it affects the costume.

Are inflatable costumes loud? 

Worried about the sound of the fan ruining your Halloween fun? Worry not–the fan isn’t loud at all! The fan makes a quiet humming noise as it fills the costume with air. You’ll forget that the fan is even running once you start your night of Halloween festivities! Maybe you’re also wondering if the fan keeps you cool or not. We can answer that, too!

Are inflatable costumes hot to wear?

It seems like you’d get hot wearing a nylon costume all night, but it’s quite the opposite! The fan is constantly circulating fresh air into the costume, keeping you feeling fresh. We’ve included a diagram to give you an idea of how the fan works. Ride on inflatable costumes are also a great option if you’re concerned about feeling stuffy. Only your legs are inside them, so they’re a bit more breathable but still hilarious. Check out these ride on inflatable costumes if you’re interested! Now I can hear you already: “enough about the fan, how much can I move in these things?” You might be surprised to find out just what you can do in an inflatable costume!

Can you sit down in an inflatable costume? 

You might think you can’t move or sit much since the costume puffs up so much, but you actually can! You can sit, walk, run, even dance like there’s no tomorrow! But if you cover or sit down on the fan, the suit will deflate. As long as the fan isn’t covered, the suit will re inflate and stay inflated no matter what you’re doing. 

Just don’t puncture the costume–the fan can’t inflate a costume with holes in it.

With all your questions answered, let’s get into all the different kinds of inflatable costumes there are! You’ll find lots of adult inflatable costumes and inflatable costumes for kids in this list! The whole family can bounce and bop in these fun costumes!

We went over so many different kinds of inflatable costumes! The only question left now is: where do I even get one? And where do I get the best ones? Don’t worry, We’ll tell you where you can find all the best inflatable costumes!

Where Can I Buy Inflatable Costumes?

You could go to a store like Walmart to find a good inflatable costume, but it definitely has its downsides compared to buying online. There’s always a limited selection in the store. You’ll spend longer in the store trying to find one than you would if you were browsing online. Plus, with Covid still running rampant, do you really want to be around a bunch of strangers? Not to mention the costumes are usually outdated by the time they hit the shelves anyway.

Buying your costume online has the advantage here. You have way more options to choose from and can keep up with the current trends. It’s also COVID safe, since you’re shopping from your home instead of going to the store. You can also search for the kind of style you want (cute, funny, animals, etc.). No need to worry about sizes either, since inflatables are one size fits all! Plus, returns and exchanges are way easier online. No waiting in line at the store–just pack and ship and you’re all done!

We hope this answered all of your inflatable costume questions! Now you know how they work and all the different kinds of inflatable costumes that are available. We hope you found something you like in this list! Is there anything you’d like to see that you didn’t see here? Check out more inflatable costumes today!
