  1. 1

    To make your mask, put the black long-sleeved shirt halfway around your head. Bring the collar to just under your eyes so it is sitting on the bridge of your nose. Have someone help you grab the back of the shirt and pull the bottom seam over your head until the bottom seam is resting just above your eyebrows. With some help, pull all the loose material behind your head and tie the sleeves into a knot at the base of your neck.

  2. 2

    Put on a black turtle neck leaving the knot of your mask tucked under the neck.

  3. 3

    Put on your black trousers and black shoes. Using black electric tape, gather your trousers at the ankles and secure.

  4. 4

    Add a red scarf or sash around the waist for a finishing touch. You may also tuck a plastic sword or other ninja accessory into your belt to make your costume look more realistic.
