My boys just love the 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…
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…

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. 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!
Here is what Henry Danger (aka Kid Danger) looks like if you are not familiar with the show…
And here is our DIY version…

The costume was easy, cheap and did not involve any sewing!
