Bubble Pipe

Name Space:
Page Type:
A costume item that's shaped like a tobacco pipe, but is clearly not on account of the fact that it blows bubbles. Related to No Smoking, as it is used instead of a real pipe as it gives the same impression without the implications of tobacco use.

It's seen often when children dress up as Sherlock Holmes, or in attempt to look fancy, sophisticated, or other similar ways.

Part of Costume Tropes. Know there are some examples, but can't easily think of it. Anybody have some?
