|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Debbie, the 'Lloyd Garmadon' costume creator:
This year, my 6 year old son, Jayden, wanted to be Lloyd Garmadon from Lego Ninjago. Here's how I made it:
Supplies: Foam board, card board, black duct tape, black and gold spray paint, green and black construction paper, tacky glue, scissors, green fabric (1 yard), black gloves, two black plumbing tubes, circular floral foam, hockey helmet, adhesive velcro straps (about 2 yards), and shoe laces.
Costs: approx $20
I started making this costume in early October. I started to design and shape his body first. I used store bought foam board and I cut it into 4 pieces - the front and back and two sides. The two sides, I cut out two arm holes. Then, I taped up the pieces with black duct tape. Then I used the velcro to attach the right side of the front body to one side.
I used construction paper to design the front. I painted on the gold part of the costume and hand drew the buckles and cut them out. I spray painted the body with black spray paint prior to putting on the design on the body.
I then proceeded with shaping the legs. I used cardboard to shape it and black duct tape. I spray painted the legs in black and glued on the designs. To keep the legs on I used velcro on the top part of the legs, which attached to my son's hockey long johns:) I also used shoe laces to tie around his ankle to keep the legs up.
I used card board to shape the shoulder pads. I then spray painted it with gold paint. I used cardboard for the base part of the shoulder pads and attached it to the body with velcro.
I used my son's hockey mask for the Lego head. I printed out the Lego eyes and cut it out. I cut out the eye circles and used black panty hose over the eyes. I then used fabric to cover the head and nose and mouth. I used cardboard for the forehead embellishment. I used duct tape and velcro to keep the fabric on.
The sword was bought from a dollar store and I spray painted it gold coloured.
There we go! One Lloyd Ninjago costume. He wore this to his school's Halloween carnival and won the prize for best costume! He was so happy! Just seeing him so happy was well worth the time and effort I put into his costume:)
