The Power Rangers is a long-lived television series which has run from 1993 to today. You can make an authentic-looking kids’ Power Ranger Halloween costume using a unitard made from Lycra or Spandex. You could also make a realistic Power Ranger costume using a polyester jumpsuit. Power Ranger costumes are very colorful, and there are a wide range of different costume designs you can choose from.
Power Ranger Costumes for Boys
Boys can wear Power Rangers costumes in a wide range of colors, such as red, blue, yellow, green, black and white. You can make a Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers Halloween costume for boys by applying large white fabric diamonds to the upper torso of a colorful unitard or jumpsuit. The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers costume gloves and boots should be white with small colored diamonds to match the color of the costume. Get a cheap Power Ranger mask to go with the costume and wear white gloves. Wear a white belt to make the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers costume complete.
You can also make a Power Ranger Halloween costume from the most recent installment of the series, Power Rangers RPM. Make a V-shaped harness from cardboard or plastic. Either spray paint the harness silver over scraps of newspaper or cover them with silver fabric. For the red, yellow and blue costumes, find a black belt and attach small black cardboard boxes around it to create a utility belt. Wear elbow-length white gloves and boots that match your costume. Place a band of black plastic at the top of the gloves and boots. The green and black costumes should have a gold utility belt and gold bands around the tops of the gloves and boots. You can also make a gold Power Ranger costume with an X shaped harness over the chest. You will need gold to cover the gloves and boots, as well as to line the sides of the costume.
Power Ranger Costumes for Girls
In the Power Rangers TV shows, the female rangers have typically worn the pink, white and yellow Power Ranger costumes. To make a girl’s Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger Halloween costume, get a long-sleeved blouse that is long enough to serve as a minidress. Attach a strip of white trim to the hem of the shirt. Find a cheap Power Rangers mask that matches the color of your Halloween costume.
To make a girl’s Power Ranger RPM costume, model your costume after Ranger Yellow or Ranger Silver. The Ranger Yellow costume has a long yellow long-sleeved blouse, yellow pants, yellow boots and white gloves. It has a V-shaped silver harness and a black utility belt like most of the other Power Ranger RPM costumes. Add a matching yellow Power Ranger mask.
To make a girl’s Ranger Silver Halloween costume, get a black jumpsuit and line the sides with silver fabric. Make an X shaped harness as in the boys’ Ranger Gold costume, but paint it silver. Get silver boots and gloves or cover some boots and gloves in silver fabric. Make a utility belt as in the other Power Ranger RPM costumes, then spray paint it silver. Put silver and red plastic bands at the tops of your boots and gloves. Get a silver Power Ranger helmet or mask to go with the Ranger Silver costume.
