    I am starting my search for Halloween, and I want to find a Show Accurate Power Ranger costume. Season doesn't matter, prefer Red or the Sixth Ranger (whichever one) and of course the approiate weapon

    Help Me!!!

    Doesn't hurt to plan ahead. I've got some designs sketched out.

    Have to try and beat Optimus Prime. This will be tough.

    Anyway, you shouldn't be trying to FIND a costume. I'm sick and tired of people who show up at halloween parties wearing a store-bought costume and expect everybody to love it.

    It's easy to find a pattern for a bodysuit, and it'll be cheaper and a better fit.

    Hey important BTW


    Speaking of costumes, if anyone knows someone that either owns or can make masks,

    I have a very important request.

    I need a movie accurate leatherface mask, not those cheap fullbody ones that are never the right size, I will be willing to pay a couple of bucks for it, but if anyone does know of a movie accurate mask of any kind please tel me :)

    the body suit is the easy part (though I have never made a costume before) its the Helmet that is going to kill me. I want the costume show accurate and there is no way I have the talent to make that freaking helmet

    Thanks! Last year I did Green Lantern and Jay of Jay and Silent Bob. The Jay costume was easy, but the Green Lantern costume I only started preparing for in August... didn't have enough money for a battery replica, and the mask I found online came in after Thanksgiving (bastards). The costume itself wasn't bad, had a ring for age, and the shirt and pants I found at Hot Topic

    I found a hardcore Dino Thunder White Ranger Costume on ebay, it looks amazing... but is over $800 :(
