They wanted to actually be like the ninjago minifigure. But we've been so busy I didn't think I would have time to make 2 lego costumes. So we compromised and decided to make them just not like a lego figure.
I ordered them karate gi uniforms from amazon and just figured I'd dye them green and red and add stuff to make it look like the ninjago. Sounded easy enough. Well I was wrong. Let just say it's alot hard then it seems to get the right colors.
I got rit fabric dye from Walmart and tulip fabric dye as well. The first time I dyed them they seemed good till I washed them and the dark green faded to a really light almost mossy green. The red ended up fading to pink. The boys were less then thrilled so I bought some more dye to see if I could darken them back up.
Well they did get darker just not how I would have liked them to. The green is manageable but the red is still a wine pinkish berry color. So I'm gonna try and see if I can fix it one more time. Cause I don't think my oldest is to keen on being a pink ninjago.
If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know I'd appreciate it!
