In a hurry?
While it doesn’t have the immense following and history that other popular franchises have, LEGO Ninjago has become extremely popular among young boys and girls.
It was first released in 2010, both as a line of LEGO toys and as an animated TV show.
The basic premise is that four ninjas with the ability to control certain elements are trying to stop an evil mastermind.
The TV show has released seasons as recently as spring 2017, so naturally they’re very popular for kids Halloween costumes.
There are many different styles of Ninjago costumes available, as well as a variety of accessories that you can pair with your costume. The ninjas themselves all have very similar outfits, but all in different colors corresponding with their element.
Who are the main LEGO Ninjago characters?
Kai, the fire ninja, wears a red face covering and robes. Cole controls earth and wears black, Jay controls lightning and wears blue, and Zane controls ice and wears white. There are two ways you could make your Ninjago Halloween costume: homemade, and store bought.
If you want to make it homemade, you can use colored t-shirts or towels to make the face mask, and get some colored robes to match. However, premade costumes are a lot more authentic looking.

Where can I buy LEGO Ninjago costumes?
The easiest way to buy your LEGO Ninjago costumes is online. All the characters are available and if you look at the Amazon Reviews, you’ll see a lot of happy customers.
Most premade costumes include a blocky foam body with the respective ninja’s colors and symbols on them, and look just like the bodies of the LEGO minifigures. They also sometimes include gloves that make your hands look like the two part LEGO minifigure hands.
There are masks that make your head look exactly like the minifigures that the costume is based on, with a mesh part that you can see through where the LEGO figure’s skin and eyes would be showing.
There are costumes available for all four ninjas, as well as other side characters in the Ninjago universe.
What are the accessories for each Ninjago character?
Of course, you’d want to add accessories if you really wanted to complete your costume.
Naturally, each of the ninjas has their own weapon that they specialize in using. So Kai uses a sword, Cole uses a scythe, Jay uses nunchucks, and Zane uses throwing stars. And there are many versions of these available in costume stores, some being made from plastic and others from foam, so kids can’t hurt each other with them.
The accessories can vary a little, depending on whether you want the ones from the TV Show or the Movie.
Also, you can either get generic looking plastic swords or swords that look like they’re from the show or the toy set. You can also get socks to match the color of the outfit your character wears, because they don’t typically wear shoes in the show.
With all these Ninjago characters to choose from, you’ll definitely need to know which one is your child’s favorite. Don’t forget to get some matching socks or shoes in the same color as your character to really complete the outfit.
