It’s the most wonderful time of the year. No, I’m not talking about the holiday season—more like the Halloween season. That’s right, October is upon us and that means Jack O’lanterns, scary movies, and candy galore. Let’s not forget the best part of the Halloween season: a costume that will make you stand out in a sea of cats and witches.
If your kids loves everything there is about the LEGO Nexo Knights and LEGO Ninjago sets and their Cartoon Network series, Disguise—a division of Jakks Pacific—will be your one-stop shop for Halloween costumes this year.
The authentic-looking LEGO costumes may actually fool people into thinking their LEGOs are walking amongst them. True to the blocky, square LEGO form, the costumes have a soft fabric, but are a shaped material that bring the characters to life.
The good news is, though the two costume lines may appear block-like, they’re made with fabric that allows a lot of articulation and movement (read: kids will have no problems when they run from house to house to scout out the candy scene). Both, the Nexo Knights and the Ninjago costumes feature mitten-like hands that allow kids to fully bend their fingers to pick up and place down different items. Additionally, aspiring knights and ninjas will be able to bend their arms and legs to fight off any villains that may stand in their way.
The masks for the costumes are made of a very light plastic, so the weight of it on kids faces all day won’t be too much to handle. Additionally, the mesh material around the eye allows for some nice breathing room. When I tried on a mask from the Ninjago costume, it did get a little difficult to look through after a long period of time. If that’s the case for others, kids can loosen the adjustable strap to help out a little, or even just take it off for small periods of time.
Another added bonus is that the costumes are made of a light fabric, so for kids that are constantly in motion, they won’t get too hot during playtime. That being said, parents can also easily fit layers underneath the costume for colder days without anyone every having to know.
The Ninjago and Nexo Knights Prestige costumes include a character half-mask with a foam insert, minifigure hands, a tunic, and pants. The costumes come in a variety of colors, including green, red, and blue. Disguise also has a ton of Nexo Knight and Ninjago accessories for kids to mix and match different looks depending on their style, as well as themed-treat bags, so that they can collect candy in true LEGO style. The costumes come in children’s sizes 4 to 6, 7 to 8, and 10 to 12.
The countdown to Halloween is on. If your kids are still undecided on a costume, show them the new LEGO lines from Disguise and they won’t be able to resist.
