The Henry Danger Inspired Halloween Costume

Like many kids, my boys just love the popular Nickolodeon show, Henry Danger.  This year, when my younger son decided he wanted to dress as Henry Danger (aka Kid Danger) for Halloween, we were disappointed that we couldn’t find any costumes in the stores.  Why should I let that stop me?…

So we created our own DIY Henry Danger costume!

When you can’t find the costume you want, you just have to make your own!

So, I whipped out my sewing machine…ha ha ha…yeah, like that would happen.  I can’t sew to save my life.

Let me start again…I hopped in my car and drove to the store to see what I could find.  Fortunately, I stumbled upon a red superhero-type mask in Walmart.  After rummaging through the store a bit more, I discovered a long sleeve blue shirt in the exact blue I was looking for along with a pair of red gloves.  Luckily, my vision for the costume was coming together but I still needed a vest to complete the look…

When you don’t want to spend a lot, you need to get creative. 

The silver vest above, started out red.  I found it at the Oshkosh outlet for $7.00!

You can’t get much cheaper than that!  Now how did I turn the red vest into that silver masterpiece in the first picture?…

Duct Tape to the rescue!

After rummaging through my duct tape supply, (left over from one of our cardboard boat races),  I realized I didn’t have any more silver.  Back to the store I went to pick up a roll.  From there, I proceeded to cover the puffer vest with the tape while leaving some of the red showing.  To add more detail, I drew some black lines with a Sharpie, taped on a Henry Danger logo from the internet and I was done with the vest.  With the addition of a pair of red pants and some boots, we were set for Halloween!

    WOW, how creative you are, Shelley! That is one fantastic costume! Sometimes I know what costumes to expect on Halloween, because I've heard all about certain characters from the grands. This year I have no clue, so I'm looking forward to seeing who's strolling our neighborhood streets, other than the usual "Princesses" and "Zombies!"
