Ninjas have long fascinated boys because of the daring stealth in which these silent warriors moved and fought. There are many legends featuring ninjas and in some countries, there are even schools that focus specifically on teaching this form of defense and survival skills. Ninja costumes for boys are tailored after these legendary warriors.
One of the popular kinds of Ninja costumes is the black costume. This color was deliberately chosen as a way for ninjas to be able to hide and move about without notice during the night so they could launch a sneak attack against the enemy.
Keeping with the stealth of the black as the main part of the costume, the costumes you can buy in this color can also come trimmed with red waistbands and are trimmed with leg bands of the same color.
These costumes also have facemasks to cover the face, leaving only the eyes exposed. You’ll also find ninja costumes in black but trimmed in silver. There are ninja costumes in brighter colors and you’ll see these in bright red or blue.
Some ninja costumes are a nod toward military service and come in camouflage design. There are a few ninja costumes that will really stand out on Halloween night such as the white or zombie ones. Most ninja costumes also come with throwing stars that fit into the waistband.
Boys also love to dress up as warriors of all sorts and Halloween is the perfect night to go trick or treating dressed like a warrior king. But kings weren’t the only warriors from the time of the Crusades.
In history, there were also Nordic warriors and boys love to dress as a Nordic warrior. Part of the appeal, besides the cool looking armored tunic was the helmet with the huge horns. The Viking Warrior costume also has a helmet that sports even bigger horns. You’ll get the tunics, capes, some with chainmail and gauntlets with these costumes.
Hercules is a warrior costume that’s perfect for Halloween night and so would one of the many gladiator costumes. With the gladiator warrior costumes, these come with shin guards and the helmet that looks just like it belongs in the days of old Rome. The helmet is close fitting and only allows the eyes and mouth to show.
The costumes come with the basic tunics that are decorated in different styles and you can get your son some of them with the shields and swords like the ones favored by the Roman gladiators.
