Ever since the first Kung Fu Panda movie came out in 2008, it warmed the hearts of kids and adults alike. It’s full of fun and quirky characters, which makes for a great Halloween theme no matter what your age! Here are a few ideas if you’re thinking of attempting a Kung Fu Panda themed costume this Halloween.
Po The Panda Costumes
To get the panda look right, there are a number of different options. The first is to look around a number of Halloween stores and see if you can find a standard panda Halloween outfit. As we know, the panda in the movie is on the larger side, so you’ll want to stuff this costume with pillows if possible. To complete the look, use makeup to create the panda look on your face, and wear some short yellow pants over the top of the costume.
There are also officially licensed costume accessories available to make the Kung Fu Panda theme easier. The mask is a good place to start, even if you don’t want to buy anything else, as this helps to recreate Po’s cheeky look from the movie. The full officially licensed Po panda costume comes in child and infant sizes.
Other Kung Fu Panda Costume Ideas
Master Shifu: Master Shifu is the red panda, and trainer of the Furious Five. To get this look right, you’ll need to get your hands on a brown kung fu robe and some very pointy and fluffy ears.
Master Oogway: This is the wise tortoise of the movie, so any Oogway costume is going to require you to dress as a tortoise who always carries his long stick with him.
Monkey Tigress: To put together a Tigress Halloween costume, you’ll need a tiger suit as the base. Wear a chinese style top and some kung fu pants over the top.
Master Monkey: This is a Gee’s Golden Langur, meaning a monkey with golden fur, a black face and a very long tail. The monkey in the movie wears cropped brown pants.
Master Mantis: This would be a fun costume for Halloween if you dare to even attempt it! It isn’t easy to get yourself looking like a mantis – you’ll need to wear all green clothing, add some extra stick legs, and possibly even a mask to achieve this look.
Thankfully, Dreamworks have released a number of officially licensed costume masks to help get these Kung Fu Panda Halloween costumes right – as long as you can put together the body of the costume.
