We are but a few weeks away from Halloween night and everyone, like every year, wonders what will be the most fun thing they can pretend to be this particular Halloween night. Some kids are saying, “who would want to be anything other that a ninja? Mom, can you find any good kids ninja costumes?”
There are many serious contenders for popular costumes this year among young children. For instance, costumes from the show Yo! Gabba Gabba have been selling like hotcakes since the show has created such a buzz among little children. Other favorites include Hannah Montana and any number of the Transformers.
Every year many, many kids across the country step out onto their local neighborhoods adorned as ninjas for all kinds of different reasons. Some include: the ninja costumes outfits is cool, the accessories are cool, ninjas have a place in American pop culture and video games that keep the buzz going. When I was a little guy, the ninja costume was pretty basic: black cloth suit, black cloth mask, and a sheathed plastic ninja sword. Now a days, everything looks ten times better than that, with unfortunately, ten times the price tag.
For crafty parents, the ninja costumes for kids could be a wise decision as well for different reasons. The outfit itself is relatively simple enough to create without the progressively steeper price tag purchasable costumes are coming with now a days. The outfit can be made for the price of material, which in many cases costs considerably less than the convenience of store purchased attire. If you are a parent having trouble coming to grips with the price tag on all costumes anymore, there are many resources available to you to make your own costumes for children and adults at home.
It’s hard for me to say that this is the best option, because there are many variables. For instance while you may be saving money, you might also be a less than adequate operator of a sewing machine which could have seriously dire results on a costume. Please note that Ninja costumes purchased in a store will be made in the latest style which can often be difficult to imitate, and accessories for those costumes that you will have to acquire separately if you hope to keep up with the Jones’s… Kids.
If you don’t fancy yourself a seamstress, or at best a Home Ec professional, you might just opt to get a kids ninja costumes and let your kids decide what they want have a red ninja costume, ninja warrior costume, dragon ninja costume or ninja superhero.
