Ninjago COSTUME?!!?

Seriously Lego folks, you're missing the market.  WHY OH WHY don't you make Ninjago costumes?

D has moved his decision from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle to Ninjago.  (Granted, still in the ninja family). I've discovered that there are NO Ninjago costumes.  So I may have to buckle down and try to make one, if D keeps this as his decision.

For reference - here's the Ninjago guy D wants to be...the blue one, Jay:
There are some crazy parents out there who have crafted large helmets out of buckets and ducktape and paint and all sorts of good things - then styrofoam to make legs so that their kid looks like a Lego man.  However, my child is 3 - he will not put up with a bucket head - and will not be able to get in and out of the car in styrofoam.

So after some more research I thought, okay I can craft this...
Then I found this:
I mean, I'm not gonna do much better, right?  I should just plan on this being the costume and save myself a month of frustration and shopping, where I'd ultimately end up with something that would look nothing like a Ninjago, right?

There's still a part of me that wants him to have a Lego head.  But maybe we'll just get a Lego head container and make it into a candy bucket to drive the point home.

I'm so with you on this, the easy route or the better costume? Mamma is Nya and Daddy is Sensei Wu.

My son also wants to wear a ninjago costume. Where did you find your costume?

I found something on Amazon that looks like the Green Ninja costume, you might check there.

I think this one was on - but I googled "Blue Ninja Costume".
Now my son has switched to Ninja Turtle! :)

I am so with you. My son wants to be the green ninjago. Why doesn't Lego get with it? I'm not that crafty. I found a green hoodie and sweatpants and a double ninja sword. I just need a green face mask! and yeah, I was going to rig it with a cardboard box to look like a LEGO but my kid who is 6, will not be comfortable in that. And he hates face paint so there goes my idea of painting his face and hands yellow.
