Halloween 2014- DIY Ninjago Costumes

Monday, December 8, 2014

This year for Halloween the girls wanted to be Jay and Kai from Lego Ninjago.

I was excited that they didn't want to be Anna or Elsa since 90% of the girl population would be dressing up as that for Halloween. :) I was also pretty excited because I knew that these costumes would be easy to make and they would be warm for the girls to wear while trick-or-treating! 

Their costumes consisted of solid colored sweat pants, 2 solid colored long sleeve t-shirts (one to wear and the other to tie around their head like a ninja mask), a pair of black gloves, some black shoes, and Dollar Tree swords. I used Glitter Heat Transfer Material and my Silhouette machine to make these go from plain ninja costumes to Lego Ninjago DX costumes!   

I couldn't find any templates online for the dragon image so I copied a coloring page and came up with my own. It isn't perfect but it definitely gets the job done! I'm not sure how to post a Silhouette file to this blog so here is an image you can grab and trace if you want to make your own homemade Ninjago  costumes! 
(The pattern is reversed for the sake of the heat transfer. The lightning bolts are for the blue ninja, Jay and the fire is for the red ninja, Kai)

Here are my little Ninjagos in action: 

We went trick-or-treating with the Steels in their neighbor hood! It was so fun! I love that we live near them once again!
