I noticed you can get latex animal foot covers for cows & horses, too. Might be worth investigating

I tried a kids sized arm cast cover and the results were impressive. They are good quality latex and remind me of the GL airships. I could have inflated this one bigger than it actually was. It proved to be a really nice ride

Adult sized leg cast covers should get pretty large when inflated, which is what I want to try next

There's been a lot of thefts of helium-filled balloons recently. More so than in the past, so they're going up. I think inflation is to blame.

They are made in the UK by a company called Bloccs. Quite expensive, but they are good quality. My original one is a small child's arm length one. I have just ordered a larger one, for an older child and a full length adult leg one, as per the enclosed picture.
Latex stockings seem to be of poor quality these days, so I am hoping the adult leg cover is going to be a suitable alternative. The original arm cover was a lovely ride and I'm hoping that more of us will try them and post stuff to Youtube... It would be awesome to see someone do a BTP with one

I got hold of a used, full sized adult leg cast cover. However, it had a number of holes in it which I have patched with liquid latex. Even if I can get it to inflate without popping, I think it will be too large to mount and ride. Would be great to BTP on a blower, though
