Bunch of Bananas- Fancy Dress Costume

Hello dear friends

Today i am posting an idea for a fancy dress costume. There are a lot of pictures and costumes available for 'Banana' fancy dress. But i wanted to do something by myself and something differently.
The Grapes costume done with balloons is a common one now. My idea originated from that. Instead of round balloons, i choose the elongated balloons (as shown). Sourcing these balloons in a single colour might be a problem but the good news is that a single balloons can be cut into 3 or 4 pieces, ie a single balloon will give you 3 to 4 bananas. Yeah it is a little hard work pumping all those balloons and knotting it but it sure gives a great look

Here is my son with his banana costume. As a final touch, paint the bananas very lightly with black paint and also the tip. It looks just like a real one.

Finally pin the lil bananas with a small golden safety pin to a yellow top and a matching pant. Make sure to arrange the bananas row by row so that u get a even look.

This particular picture is from the event itself. He wore a brown woolen cap to represent the crown of a bunch of bananas, complete with a yellow sock.

The elongated balloons

Hope it was useful to you. I had lots of fun doing it and the kids enjoyed flaunting it.
Thanks for dropping by. See you soon again
