If you are wondering how to be a ninja for the sake of looking more convincing in your ninja costume you've come to the right place. We've put together 4 easy to learn moves that will make people wonder where you really were last summer when you said you were just visiting your aunt. Right. An aunt who taught you mad ninja skills!
Is someone getting up in your space? Enforce your personal boundaries by assuming a defensive stance. Place your hands in front of you and make fists. This signals that you're alert and ready to strike should someone lean in a little too close to check out your ninja suit.
Ninjas are all about moving around in stealth like fashion. In order to remain undetected, you need to be quiet. You may also need to send the universal signal to let those around you know that they should remain hushed so as to not draw attention to yourself. Put your index finger up to your mouth as if to say, 'Shhh.' But don't actually say it. Remember, you're being quiet.
When you're preparing to strike against your target, you need to be ready to react to whatever they throw at you. It's pretty much a given that you'll look more nimble in a crouched pose than standing straight up. So bend your knees and make sure you are ready when it's time to attack.
The moment has arrived, it's time to act! Hold your weapon high and let the other person's fear by your ally. Since you haven't been trained in actual ninja combat skills, you'll need to rely on the other person being too terrified to engage you. It should work 9 out of 10 times. For that one time that it doesn't work, we recommend you run.
Ninjas are usually solitary warriors and assassins, having shunned off the larger world for the sake of honing their craft. But that sounds pretty lonely to us! Two is always better than one, despite what you've heard, it especially applies to ninjas. Together, they create a deadly duo, known for their weapon expertise, ability to coordinate fashionably, their legendary fights, and their capabilities to show mercy and friendship using their equally legendary baking skills. Ninjas... better together since 1455!
Silence is your friend when you're a ninja. Luckily, you'll look so good in these sexy costumes that you won't have to utter a single word to convince anyone. We love the red; the color of passion (and blood) with the mysterious and frightening void of color, black, makes this duo especially deadly, and unbelievably good looking.
No matter how great things seem to be going, eventually, every couple will have a fight. Most just argue, slam a door or two, and work it out. But ninjas? When they fight, they FIGHT! It's an interesting phenomenon to witness, a little like the best kind of nature footage. They never talk it out, in fact, they don't say a thing! Instead, they draw their weapons, and see who is able to catch the other in a vulnerable position. Once there is a clear victor, it's all over! They've tried couples therapy, but it wasn't as definitive as a good duel...
Usually they're pretty brutal once they've won the match. Fatality? Seems kind of harsh. Who knew that in a twisted game of Mortal Kombat a fellow contestant could be so kind! Kitana here has decided to show Sub Zero some mercy, and instead of fan-blading him inside out, she presented him with a wonderful frosted cake. Friendship? Yes, friendship!
Sure, the classic ninja costume is, well, classic! But there's other options to get in on the feudal fun. These are just a few ideas our costume experts came up with to create your own look, go with something a little different, and even pay homage to a few sewer dwelling mutants. Cowabunga!
Some say the ninja never really existed in the way that they're portrayed in movies and television. If you want to be slightly more realistic in your costume choice, perhaps our Samurai costume is the way to go! We topped this one off with our long black wig, which gave the whole look a cool warrior vibe. Just don't forget the sword! Any Samurai worth his mighty fee would never be without his katana...
What's this? A Pirate and a ninja some how amalgamated into one being? "That's impossible, they're meant to be mortal enemies!" you might say. Well, we decided to find the perfect look for anyone who couldn't decide whether to be one or the other. Thus, Piraninja was born. Mix and match accessories to your hearts content. He's the deadliest buccaneer on the high seas...
It's pizza time! "Pepperoni and anchovies, coming right up! Where am I delivering this? The NYC sewers? Must be the Ninja Turtles again..." That's right, everyone's favorite bodacious heroes in a half-shell are ready to party! Whether you're a child of the 80s, or love the latest iterations of the TMNT, we have a bunch of costumes and accessories to help recreate your favorite character; Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello. Sorry, but the pizza isn't included!
A ninja knows how to jump, kick, and hide, but they have to know how to wield a weapon properly, or they won't make it to their next job. Luckily, we have all the (toy) weapons you could ever need, and whether you're on a secret mission in a rival shogun's territory, or messing around with your friends on Halloween, they'll make you look deadly serious... and seriously deadly.
The knife is the perfect weapon for a ninja. It's small, and thus stealthy. We like the hidden knives because they're at first unassuming, but in a flash they become two deadly knives. If stealth is your main priority, a knife is your best bet!
If you need a little more 'oomph' in your combat, you should try a ninja sword! Otherwise known as a katana, it will be handy if you have to fight your way out of the Feudal castle, or you just want to look super threatening and cool. We really like the Snake Eyes sword seen in our first image here because it has a realistic look.
The go to ninja projectile weapon has always been the throwing star. Luckily, we sell those! Of course, they're made of foam... but don't let that stop you from flinging them around. They will bounce off your enemies instead of stabbing them but this means you can still have your fun while avoiding jail time.
Sometimes you just need a little more deadliness, and for that we recommend our nunchaku! You might know those from Bruce Lee or the TMNT, but they're a standard weapon for any ninja. You might bonk yourself in the head on occasion while learning to wield them properly, but don't worry, they're plastic!
