But how does one go about making a Balloon Boy costume? Well, off the top of my head, I'm thinking aluminum foil and lots of it.

OK, seriously, if I were planning on sporting this costume, I'd probably wear a cardboard box around my waist with a silver sheet draped around it. And of course a nametag that reads Falcon.
