Like many kids, my boys just love the popular Nickelodeon show, Henry Danger. While planning this year’s Halloween costume, my younger son decided he wanted to dress as Henry Danger (aka Kid Danger). Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any Henry Danger costumes in Party City or any of the costume stores. Why should I let that stop me?… We just 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. Sure, the mask wasn’t exactly like Kid Danger’s mask, but was close enough.
After rummaging through the store a bit more, I discovered a long sleeve blue shirt in the exact “Kid Danger blue” color I needed. Then I spotted some simple red gloves…score! Luckily, my vision for the Henry Danger costume was coming together but I still needed a vest to complete the look…
DIY Henry Danger Costume (aka Kid Danger)
When you don’t want to spend a lot for Halloween, you need to get creative.
Originally, the silver vest above was 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 Kid Danger boots, we were set for Halloween!
Here is what Henry Danger (aka Kid Danger) looks like if you are not familiar with the show.
