Power Rangers Halloween Costumes


I covered Halloween costumes before, but not on accuracy of the costumes, if they are show-accurate. When it comes to the Halloween costumes, for SPD, we got all the male rangers and for Ninja Storm and Jungle Fury, one was skipped.


The Halloween costumes were unique as when the show came out, there were only Red, Blue and Pink. A three-Ranger stable that will continue occurring through the years. Later in 1994 and 1995 for Seasons 2 and 3, there were the other colors (Black, Yellow) including White, but never Green. Green was only available in sewing patterns. All the Rangers, except White were show accurate, they were a middle mix between the toys and the show suits with the 'coin decal' on their chests.

There was the White and Pink Ninja Ranger outfits, that were pretty basic, water-downed versions.


The costumes, I recall all six Ranger Costumes being available in stores but online, I can only find Red, Pink and Gold. The costumes were show-accurate but the Gold Ranger's shield was flat, not popping out like the White Ranger.


Turbo, I think this is the first year to only have four Ranger costumes (Red, Blue, Pink and Phantom). The unique part of this one is that Phantom Ranger was used twice, I think the first one-year Ranger to be repeated twice. The Phantom Ranger costume is a simple version of the show version. Funny thing is that they had a generic logo.

The Silver Ranger got no costume. The only Rangers that got costumes was Red and Pink. That's it. It was the first time the Blue Ranger got shafted. The other costume sold with them was Phantom Ranger, who made cameos in the series. I finally found a pic of Red Space Ranger on 10/16/10.


As for the costumes, as in Power Rangers in Space, there was only two Rangers and this time we got four--Red, Blue, Pink and Magna Defender. The Rangers were accurate, but the Magna Defender was a dumbed-down version of the costume. As you can tell, the 'muscles' started early on with the Galaxy costumes. This was the first to do so.

For Lightspeed, only three were produced (Red, Pink and Titanium). This is the second time the Blue Ranger got no costume. It is the last time to have only 3 Ranger Halloween costumes. The outfits were fairy accurate. As for the Titanium Ranger, there was a yellow line above the 'Y' mark. Also, the yellow is deeper shade in the show.


For Time Force, we got four: Red, Blue, Pink and the Quantum Ranger. The Quantum Ranger is not accurate at all, it had a split of lines in the helmet and suit. Also, the yellow mark on the helmet and he is a darker shade of red, which on the show, he and the Red ranger were the same shade of red. This 'look' was also in some illustrations of him.


Wild Force, four again: Red, Blue, White (female), and Silver. The deluxe version were show-accurate, with gloves, boots and weapon.


Maybe because this was the first Disney series, most of the Rangers got costumes: Red, Blue, Navy, Crimson and Green. Also introduced to the Halloween costumes was the muscle suits, there is the choice between without muscles and with muscles.

Red, Navy, and Crimson got muscle suits. Blue above is the deluxe version.

Yellow Ranger did get a Disney Store exclusive.
The Green costume was very very show accurate.


For Halloween, there was Red, Blue, Yellow, Black and Triassic. Black Ranger only came with muscles for boys.

Also unique was Adult costumes for once: Black and Triassic. They are as simple as the kid ones, including 'muscles,' no real gloves or boots, the helmet is a double part mask.

And even the only PR costume ever for dogs! Of course only in Red. I wish there was Pink cause I have girl dogs. There was no White, White was the only one ignored. Other than Black Ranger's gold accents being yellow and the Triassic Ranger being a darker shade of red, the others were show accurate.

The Disney Store exclusive was of Red and Blue in Super Dino mode.


SPD was unique as there was there so many Rangers. 13 in the series and 7 in the toys. In Halloween, all the main Rangers got included... except for the yellow ranger, she didn't even get a Disney Store exclusive. Red Ranger and Blue Ranger got regular, muscle suit and deluxe 'Swat Mode.' Pink Ranger got regular and Swat. Omega got a muscle suit, Shadow got a regular suit, and Green got regular as well. Six is the most ranger costumes we have gotten lately. The costumes were fairly show accurate, but the swat and Shadow Ranger were a bit watered down.


In costumes, Red, Green, Pink and the Solaris Knight. The female Blue Ranger at least got a Disney Store exclusive. They were all fairly show accurate, except for the Solaris Knight, it was stream-lined. It got some muscles in it, it is the only one. Red and Green got regular and muscle. Pink got regular and shinier 'deluxe' costume. And again, Yellow got shafted. No male Yellow Ranger has gotten a child Halloween costume.

For PROO, only the male rangers got love and in the costumes, there was 5 costumes (Red, Blue, Black, Pink, and Mercury) but no Yellow. Black, in a loooong time got a costume. All the boys got muscles and regular costumes. All the costumes were show accurate, boots and gloves came separate, but Mercury Ranger's blue color seemed a bit off.


Jungle Fury is a unique creature on its own. Because like Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder, the series started with three rangers (a female yellow ranger), so since there would be no new Rangers until July or so, they made Elephant, Bat, and Shark Rangers. So there is the muscle costumes: Red, Blue, and Rhino; regular: Red, Blue, Yellow and Rhino. Surprisingly, the other Rangers are fairly show accurate. I like the details in the back.
And the Disney Store exclusive is Bat Ranger, which is not show accurate at all! I already covered this, so I won't bore you.

The Rhino Ranger has a Halloween costume and he is being called 'Special Ranger.'
Violet Ranger did get a costume months later in the United Kingdom, I don't think this was released in the U.S.; this costume is fairly accurate.



Brand new revealed in July 2009, we got the main five, which has not happened since Ninja Storm. The suits are fairly suit-accurate except for the boots. Boots are sold seperately and they have in black and green but it has the regular tire-color cuffs. No Gold or Silver, I think that's fair if they have to exclude something. The boy colors all come in regular and in muscle and Yellow comes in regular and shiny like with Mystic Force.

'Classic Power Rangers'

Surprise! For 2009, we get Red and Pink child costumes of MMPR. It doesn't say MMPR in the title in the online stores.

Thre has been Red adult costume, it turns out to be official and they are making Pink one for adult too. The Red one is shiny for some reason.

Since last year, the boys could get muscle Red Ranger suit. And this year, the White Ranger costume was released, with abs and biceps or not, a simple saba sword sold separately.

This year for some reason they don't have the diamonds on the bottom cuffs, maybe the boots are sold separately that come with the diamonds and I don't see them.

And even though the Green Ranger is probably the most popular Ranger of all time, there was no Halloween costume for him until 2012, other than the sewing patterns made in 1994.
