Making your own Halloween costumes can be a great way to save money. in this article, I will discuss some tips on how to make a pink power ranger costume. if your child wants to go as the pink power ranger this Halloween, you can turn it into a fun art project. there are three main components of the costume: the helmet, the pink jumpsuit, and the gloves and boots.
There are three main ways to make the helmet. you can look for a used motorcycle helmet at a thrift store and paint in pink, you can wear a pink hood and paint your face pink with a black visor, or you can make a helmet out of paper mache.
Making the helmet out of paper mache can be a fun art project. you start by blowing up a balloon to the desired size just bigger than your head. then cover it with four or more layers of paper mache leaving a hole for the visor where your eyes are. After the paper mache dries, paint the helmet pink and cut out the eye holes more so that it is in the shape of a visor. Cover the eyeholes with black netting or pantyhose. then cut the helmet in half so there is a front half and a back half, and attach it together with tape or velcro once you are read to wear it.
For the pink jumpsuit, you just need to find a head to toe pink outfit. put a short pink skirt over it, or find a long pink tunic top. you can wear a pink sweatsuit, a pink leotard, or pink leggins with a long sleeve shirt. Sew or glue on white diamonds cut out from fabric to mimi the power ranger suit design. look at some pictures for reference to get the design right.
The last part of the jumpsuit is the belt with the morpher. you can either use a white belt or make one out of white fabric. cut out the morpher out of cardboard and color it with the correct design. look at a picture to get the design right. Attach the morpher to the belt, and you are done.
For the boots and gloves, you can either find long white gloves and high white boots, or make them. you can add fabric over your shoes to make them look like boots, and sew on pink diamonds. Sew pink diamonds onto the gloves as well, and you have the look completed.
