Inflatable Louie Costume


Louie hangs out with APPA's Pam Cowen and Ursula Schryver at a recent APPA conference.

The inflatable Louie the Lightning Bug® costume is the best Louie costume we've ever offered. The costume gets its shape from a constantly-running fan powered by a battery waistpack. Instead of being constricted by hot, heavy foam, the wearer has room to move around inside the suit. The wearer's arms can be moved in and out of each of Louie's four arms to give the illusion that all Louie's arms move.

The inflatable Louie costume is cooler and lighter than the tradtional foam costumes which makes it easier on the wearer. Inside the costume, the temperature is only a few degrees higher than the outside ambient temperature. The costume's lighter weight also saves money whenever the costume is shipped.

Getting in and out of the costume is easy and takes just a few minutes. Start by putting on a light vest that contains the battery pack. Step into the legs and put your own shoes on, then strap those into Louie's shoes. Connect three buckles that attach the costume to the vest, then connect the battery cable to the fan cable and switch it on. The wearer then lifts the body over his/her head and zips it around the suit. Costume inflates in one to two minutes.

Costume includes a battery charger and two high-grade rechargeable batteries. Battery life is approximately 90 minutes and charge time is approximately 60 minutes. The costume requires one battery, so one can be charged while the other is worn in the suit.

The price is $9900 plus shipping. We highly recommend the purchase of an optional trunk with wheels at $550. The trunk protects your investment, and the wheels make for easier portability.
