DIY Costume: Midnight Ninja

Yep, I'm back with another DIY Halloween costume idea for you!  Are you excited?  Well, I am.

So while browsing Halloween costumes online, I came across a few that I really liked but the prices for them were pretty ridiculous.  The average price for the costumes I wanted were $30 - $60.  That's a little too much for my budget, especially since it's only for a few hours on one night.  And with three kids and Halloween being on a school night this year, I'm only going around the neighborhood - not to a super fab Halloween party.

One of the costumes I liked was this "Deadly Ninja" costume.  I like how its a little sexy, but still appropriate for a wild night of trick-or-treating.

Isn't it cute?  I thought so.  But for $50, I'm sure we can come up with something a little cheaper, right?  RIGHT.

See, basically the same thing.  I'm sure we all have a basic black tank top and black leggings laying around our closets somewhere.  The fingerless gloves can be made using a pair of old black socks.  Use red ribbon or yarn (or cut an old red tshirt into strips) to wrap around your legs and forearms and cover your head and face using a black scarf.  The black knee-high boots can be substituted for any black shoe and just do a basic smokey eye for your makeup and that's about it - instant ninja!

So what do you guys think?  Do you think you'll be a ninja this year?  What costumes have you had your eye on?


  1. $50 is definitely crazy for that costume. your version of it is great and way more budget-friendly!
