DIY Power Ranger Costumes

Every year my little ones ask for handmade Halloween costumes.  Most years have been simple like making a Pikachu costume or the Buzz Lightyear.

This post contains affiliate links to products I recommend.  I do make a portion off any you may purchase.  See full disclosure here.


Of course, when two of my littles wanted to be Power Rangers, I had to really sit and get creative.  A DIY Power Ranger costume seemed to be more work than it would be worth.

I really didn't want to go all out and crazy with the outfit.  Plus, I typically like to make our costumes from pajama sewing patterns.  That way the kids can reuse them and they don't just get one night of use out of them.

As I researched, I found I could easily make them Dino Fury Power Rangers fairly easily.

With just a cute mask and some embellished pajamas, we had the perfect costume and they have really loved them.

So here is a super quick tutorial on how I put together DIY Power Ranger costumes for my kids.  I used the Alex and Anna Pajama Pattern as my base.  It is one of my FAVORITE patterns.  

I also purchased all my knit fabrics from KnitFabric.com.  They really have beautiful fabrics and super fast shipping.

DIY Power Ranger Costumes

Step 1
Cut out all the pieces in felt for either the Pink Ranger mask or the Red Ranger mask.

Step 2
Use the colored image in the pattern to line up the pattern pieces.  Lay out a single piece of the base on a flat surface.  Place the mask top over the base, with the additional pieces over the mask top.  

Stitch all the layers down using a matching thread.

Cut a 10" pieces of elastic.  Find the remaining mask base piece.

Step 4
Sandwich the elastic between the two base pieces.  The right sides of the fabric should face out.  The elastic should be pinned to the two sides of the mask, just above where the wearers ears would be located.

Stitch a 1/4" around the outside of the mask.  Stitch the two layers and elastic together.

Step 5
Using the pattern as a guide, cut out two eye holes in the mask.  Stitch around the eye holes you cut out.  Making sure to stitch the two layers together.

Step 6
On the bodice front, stitch down about a 5" piece of yellow fabric on the diagonal.  I started at the bottom of the armhole on one side.

Stitch two 1" pieces of silver material along the edges of the yellow fabric.

Step 7
Cut black strips of fabric or strips of iron on vinyl.  Stitch or iron the pieces along the yellow part of the stripe.  You want them to be in a zig zag design.

Add a 1.5" stripe of silver around the base of the top.  About 5" from the bottom.  Stitch in place.
