This year my son wanted to be the blue Lego Ninjago for Halloween. And he wanted to look like a real Lego. So I decided to attempt to make this Homemade Lego Ninjago Costume for him. I believe it turned out really well. It was a group effort. I constructed all the pieces and my fiance drew everything on to be painted. My son also drew the faces (of course, he wanted two faces to choose from) for the head.

We made the legs out of Styrofoam and cardboard and then covered them with poster board before painting. The body is just cardboard also covered with poster board. The head was made with the top and bottom being pieces of Styrofoam and the middle (face) out of poster board. The hands were made of Styrofoam and I used some water bottles for his hands to fit through so he could still use his hands.

The mask was made out of cardboard. We cut out holes where the mouths were in the face and on the mask and covered the holes with screen which we also paint. (This is where he looked out to see.) I had to use a finish on the Styrofoam before I could paint.

He looked and moved just like a real Lego and he got many compliments everywhere we went.

Coolest Ninjago Lego Minifigure Costume

Homemade Lego minifigure costume inspired by the cartoon Ninjago and my son. It is made out of styrofoam and acrylic gesso for the most part.

Cutting, sizing and carving the styrofoam took quite some time. After several trial and errors, I ended up stacking then gluing the pieces into a 2 foot block then began carving the head out. This took the most time and was the messiest part.

The yellow part of the Lego head is made out of poster board and backed with a flexible screen (eyes) so he could see. The hands were also stacked pieces of styrofoam that I carved out. Because spray paint and styrofoam don't work well with each other, the pieces were covered with poster board (except the head and hands) attached with Craft Bond glossy side up then spray painted.

The head and hands were covered with several coats of Acrylic Gesso (kind of like Elmer's glue) then spray painted. The glossy side of the poster board and the Gesso give it the plastic look when spray painted. It took about 30 hours total to make this Ninjago Lego Minifigure Costume but was well worth it in the end.

Great costume! My son would love to be Ninjago for Halloween and I'd love to connect with him more by making this together. Would you be willing to email instructions? 2norma.hernandez@gmail.com Also, not quite sure if the legs just slipped in from the back or if you need to construct them to step in so it just covers the front and not the back. And, what about the body? Is that also Styrofoam?
Thanks,
norma
