This homemade costume for adults entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Rob, the 'Mighty Morphin Power Ranger' costume creator:

Growing up, my hero was always Jason, the Red Ranger from "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers." Seeing how this year is the 20th anniversary of the show, I KNEW I had to do this costume! I started this in February and created the helmet using expensive molding clay. Once It was finished, I covered with high-quality resin that gives it a fiberlass feeling and coats the helmet. I used a visor from a motorcycle helmet and glued it to the inside of the helmet.

In order to make the sword, I bought a 42" toy sword and cut off the t-bone section towards the bottom and stuck the sword through a giant ball of clay. I then molded the clay to match the exact design from the show. Once it was dry, I sanded it down and painted it to match the designs from "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers."

For the morpher and Blade Blaster, I owned these as a child, so no work was needed for these except for TV accurate stickers I found online.

For the boots, belt, and gloves I just bought a very thick material for the red diamonds and used a strong faux leather to create the wrappings on the arms, the main parts of the boots, and the belt. I used fabric paint to create the black lines on the belt.

Finally, to create the suit, I bought a plain lycra body suit and sewed in white lycra diamonds on top of the costume. I think I did a pretty stellar job matching everything to the TV show from when I was a child and I felt like a kid all over again. This is what Halloween is all about!! It's Morphin Time!!
