Black Ninja Assasin Costume

 Last year when Lily told me she wanted me to make her a Black ninja assassin costume I raised my eyebrows and thought to myself...."hmmmmmm."
"Sounds challenging...."

And the perfect opportunity to experiment with some black faux leather stretch fabric I bought downtown for 2 dollars a yard that had been donated from the workshop of the BEBE design room, a chain shop catering to cheesy, super sexy, and age inappropriate fashion knockoffs for teens.

Now that I look back, I wonder if it had something to do with the rough school year she was having, her wanting to be a black ninja assassin for Halloween, that is.
Or maybe she watched a ninja movie with her big brother when I wasn't home....

Oliver is his thrown together explorer costume. Always putting something together at the last minute.

  Lily drew a picture of what she wanted, and I set about figuring how to construct it. 
I traced some of her pants and a long sleeved t shirt, and connected them to make a jumpsuit pattern.
I made the top wrap around because that was a part of Lily's design.
Then I created a hood pattern using a pattern I had.
I made a hole on the top of the hood to put her pony tail through.
I think she looks really tough!
 Don't even think about messing with this girl.
 That's actually a real sword cover on her hip there. A souvenir from a trip to Japan. Sword not included on hip... But she wanted to use it. Too sharp.
I have to draw the line somewhere.

  1. Lily looks adorable.. What a fantastic job you did mom.. And son is very handsome in his costume too.
    Sorry Lily had a rough school year.. Hope its better this year.. I know Callie has had a rough one last year too.
    but thank God, is doing much better this year...

  2. I love costumes like this because a child will have so much fun wearing it long after Halloween is over. That make-believe world is such a wonderful learning experience. I hope she has a fantastic school year.

  3. Super cute and super fun!
