Power Rangers Series
Last Updated: 11-04-2009
I was about 6 when MMPR hit the US airwaves, and was hooked by 5 teenagers wearing colored helmets and spandex and piloting gigantic dinosaur themed robots. It was the coolest thing ever.
4 years ago, I had made myself a Mighty Morphin' Red Ranger costume for Halloween, using a bike helmet, cardstock, spraypaint, some white fabric and a red longsleeve shirt and sweats. I wore it around the Castro in San Francisco, where I was quite the celebrity. I was being stopped every few minutes by grown men and women who had grown up with the original Power Rangers like I had, taking pictures and generally living it up.
Alas, that costume was illfitting and poorly constructed, and by the night's end was pretty much in shambles. Using what I had learned from the first costume, I set out this year to create the costume I had REALLY wanted to make once I knew how: The Green Ranger.
