Lego Ninjago Jay & Zane Costume
DIY Lego Ninjago costumes
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Megan, the 'Lego Ninjago Jay & Zane' costume creator:
My sons (Wells "Jay", 7 & Owen "Zane", 6) hoped to be Lego Ninjago characters for Halloween. Luckily, they have a crafty Mama. And, so began the creation of their costumes. These are completely DIY (I honestly didn't know how to "do" any of this). I used my imagination & creativity & worked on these between other projects (I'm an artist) & our normal life. Here's a rundown of supplies/how these were created: each character is made out of 2 Adult XL Sweatshirts (what you see as blue & white), a Cheese Balls container (heads), pieces from a Styrofoam Cooler (shaped part of heads & legs), Window Screen (eyes), Cardboard (body & swords), Spray Adhesive (every inch of these costumes!), Felt (chest & swords), Packing Tape (body & swords), Drink Koozies (hands) & T-Shirts (covering Koosies - hands). I used a sewing machine to make the pants (out of sweatshirt scraps) & used elastic to hold the costumes over their shoes. The swords are made of old boxes (cut & angled to size), packing material (stuffed inside), covered in white felt & spray painted in metallic gold. I finished these, tonight & as soon as that was announced - squeals started & costumes where on, followed by standing in front of the mirror (admiring themselves & chopping Ninja moves while at it) & finally - the pictures you see here. I'm one excited Mama - HAPPY, to see my boys SO over the moon!
