Lego Ninjago Bytar
|Costume type:||Costumes for Boys|
This homemade costume for boys entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Lawrence, the 'Ninjago Bytar' costume creator:
6 year old Maddox loves Ninjago and wanted to be "bad guy" Bytar.
The costume is essentially 4 parts: Leg coverings, torso, hand coverings and helmet. Most of the supplies were purchased at Dollar Tree so this costume cost around $10 to make.
- 20"x30" sheets of black foam board
- *Optional - Black trash bags so costume is rainproof
- Poster board
- Party hats
- Craft paint
- Hot glue & Elmer's spray adhesive
- Duct tape
- Pencil, X-Acto knife, box cutter, ruler
Construction: Everything was sketched free-hand using a Lego mini-fig as inspiration. Once the main pieces were cut from foam core, they were hot glued together and then reinforced with duct tape - on the inside so seams don't show! Poster board was used for the curved portions of the legs and hat because they were easier to bend.
Spray adhesive allowed us to cover the costume with trash bags making it look more like plastic and ensuring it was rainproof.
Silver poster board was cut with an X-Acto knife for the scale detailing & mounted with spray adhesive. Party hats were painted orange & hot glued to the hat; two more were painted white for the fangs.
The bottom of the hat is completely open so it's easier to look down while walking. We also cut out Bytar's eyes and made multiple holes in the scale area for added visibility.
The hat sits on top of the torso. The torso slides over the head, cuffs have holes to slide hands through and feet slide into leg boots (with a strap to hold them in place).
Lastly, we printed Lego Ninjago logos from the internet and glued them to a bag - all ready to collect lots of candy!
