Ninja Costumes for Boys

by TerriRexson

A selection of the best ninja costumes for boys. Lots of costume ideas for kids who want to dress up as ninjas.

A ninja is a cool costume idea for boys from preschoolers through to tweens and teens. A ninja is stealthy and wears a martial arts costume, often with a dragon motif.

A team of ninjas (or ninja) makes a great group costume idea for a group of friends who want to go trick or treating together. Choose costumes in a variety of colors and practice your ninjutsu moves for an impressive effect. You can also add lots of fun toy ninja weapons to accessorize a ninja costume.

Ninjas are a popular theme at the moment. There's Supah Ninjas, Lego Ninjago, GI Joe and Power Rangers. Ninjas are everywhere!

Oh and yes, girls can be ninjas too and they can certainly wear any of the costumes featured on this page, but you can also get ninja costumes for girls.

Black Ninja Costume

Shinobi shōzoku

The classic Ninja costume is an all-black martial arts uniform with a head-scarf that just has an opening for the eyes. The ninja is highly skilled in martial arts and stealthy. He is a trained spy and has many skills in addition to combat. 

The Gungfu authentic ninja costume comes in child sizes from a height of 4'6'' though to tween and teen sizes and adults too. It makes a great Ninja Halloween costume. 

This uniform is also known as Shinobi shōzoku and is worn for the martial art of Ninjutsu practiced by Ninjas. 

To be really authentic you can add black Japanese tabi boots with a split toe (available separately.)

What Did Ninjas Wear?

Did Ninjas really wear black?

Kids Dragon Samurai Costume - Kids Ninja Halloween Costumes


So what did Ninjas really wear? Ninjas (or ninja) were ancient Japanese warriors skilled in the martial art of ninjutsu. 

Ninjas were known for their stealth. Actually there would have worn whatever clothes were suitable for their mission. They might have worn ordinary Japanese clothes if they needed to blend in to a crowd. Or they might have worn dark clothes for a night-time mission. Or dressed as a Samurai warrior to disguise their real intent. 

It is thought that the all-black costumes come from Japanese theatre where, by convention, black characters could not be seen. Stealthy ninjas therefore came to wear all black.

But today everyone recognises a martial arts suit with a head covering showing only the eyes as a ninja suit. 

You could try dressing as a Samurai and telling everyone you're a ninja on a secret mission, but that option is more complicated!
