300 Movie Costumes

Who better to dress as for this year’s Halloween season than King Leonidas or one of the Immortals? If I were a guy, I’d definitely be strutting around in one of these…

Show off your manliness (with or without the body of Brian Danner) this year. We’ve got the complete Spartan outfit available to you! These items are great for wearing and will look awesome when displayed while not on your body:

Spartan/King Leonidas Costume:

  • King Leonidas Helmet – Cover thy head with one of these fancy helms.
  • Spartan Cape – You aren’t a Spartan without a cape, right? And what would your cape be without a Round Brooch?
  • 300 Spartan Warrior Shield – Defend thyself against thine enemies with one of these huge shields!
  • 300 Greaves – Also known as leg guards, these babies will complete your outfit nicely, and protect your shins too.
  • Vambrances – Keep your arms under protection from Xerxes’ army with these.
  • 300 Briefs – Every Spartan must have a pair (or two)!
  • Spartan Warrior Sword (wooden) – This one is people-friendly, so if you want to take your sword to a party and have a few drinks, nobody will avoid you like the plague in fear of angering you and your big bad Spartan sword.
  • 300 King Leonidas Sword – For the leader in you, lead your small army to take on the Persians with this powerful weapon.
  • 300 Spartan Warrior Spear Yet another must have for members of the Spartan army.

Naruto Costume

Transform yourself into the mighty ninja, Naruto Uzumaki this Halloween season. Strive to become the strongest ninja in your village with any of our fear-instilling, yet fascinating Naruto weapons from the anime manga series!

Tips on Creating the Naruto look:

To dress like Naruto, use an orange jumpsuit and cut and sew a few pieces to complete the look (the pants should stop just below the knees and are loos fitting while the top should be orange with blue shoulders with an orange or white collar). Add a black belt, a headband, and a blonde wig (if you don’t have short, blonde hair)!

To finalize your look, you definitely need some weapons! Check out our inventory of Naruto weapons today! My recommendations: Naruto Sasuke Kusanagi Grass Cutter Sword for the Sasuke fan or the Wooden Zabuza Sword!

Ninja Costume

So you want to be a Ninja (or “kunoichi” if you are a lady) this Halloween? Dressing up like a ninja is probably one of the coolest yet easiest costume ideas around. Sometimes dressing up isn’t as fun when you don’t play the part so here you will find some simple steps on how to be a ninja for a night and a couple must-have items for you.

Step 1. Dress like a ninja. They key here is dark – my choice would be black. Black pants, black shirt (turtleneck if you can tolerate one), and a ninja mask (you can make this easily out of a long piece of fabric or a tshirt). For simple steps on how to make a ninja mask from a tee shirt, please see below:
How to make a ninja mask out of a t-shirt: Put the shirt over your head, stopping with the neck opening right around your nose. While leaving the front of the neck opening around your face, pull the back of the opening up over your head and hang right above your eyes. Then take the loose parts of the shirt and place behind your head while tying the arms together in back. Tuck any excess fabric in the shirt you will be wearing.

Step 2: Think, react, and move like a ninja: The way of the ninja is not a violent or angry. The ninja does not manipulate by violent force, but instead by words and actions. You need to think before you react and never react in anger. You must be able to move stealthily and escape effectively. Have self control.

Step 3: Practice ninjutsu: Show off to your friends (an foes) with your cool ninja skills.

Step 4:
Get ninja weapons and swords! Some ninja essentials are below (wooden swords are recommended for Halloween, but not required):
