A human cannonball jumper is an iconic image from classic circuses dating back generations. The bit, performed as a spectacle during a circus tour, involved a man stuffing himself into a large cannon and being fired out of the cannon, becoming airborne, as a cannonball would. This costume can be created through many items found in your own closet, or through a few small purchases at a local vintage store.
