The idea of Aero-Ride is inspired by Aeolian Ride (details in the video). We keep the original elements of fun, love of biking, a sense of humour, silliness. Now instead of using white fabric, we re-use waste plastic bags to construct the inflatable costume. It turns out that the thin plastic material is easier to inflate and has many possibilities to create many different shapes.
Below is a step by step illustration to show how to construct a simple Aero.
Get a used plastic bag with a width larger than your shoulder.
Chop off the handles
expand and flatten the bag
mark out two holes (shaded area) with at least 10 cm wider than the shoulder of your T-shirt
cut out the holes
use a tape to reinforce the holes, so that it won’t be teared apart easily
both holes applied reinforcement tapes
roll up the edge. use tapes to keep the rolled edge.
reverse the plastic bag, stick the centre to top of a cap.
test the effect using a fan
congrats, you’ve made your own Aero. You are ready for Aero Ride!
