For this Kick Ass costume, I will add the links to all the items needed to complete this below along with descriptions. enjoy!!
Kick Ass costume
I got my Kick Ass costume on amazon. For the price, this was very good. it was a little baggy on me as I would have liked it to be a little tighter but I should have known that before ordering. The material is quite light. The seller doesn’t list what type of material it is made from but if I was to guess, i would say polyester, cotton and spandex. Overall a good Kick Ass costume for the price.
Kick Ass Nightstick
Kick Ass’s weapon of choice is the nightstick for this I got on amazon. it is made from plastic. It measures 13 inches long, just about. First off this was very cheap so I wasn’t expecting a whole lot, I just wanted a cheap nightstick to use for the Kick Ass costume. In my opinion you get exactly what you pay for. it did what I needed it to do But i won’t be prising its quality anytime soon.
To finish off the Kick Ass costume, i got a pair of Timberland boots. I like the timberland boots so I bought these for the Kick Ass costume but also to wear them everyday during the winter, as they avery expensive to buy for just a costume. If you don’t like these type of boots and you just want a similar pair, there are loads of cheaper alternatives on amazon.
Hit-Girl is a fictional character from the comic’s titled “Kick Ass”. Created by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. in the mid 2000’s. Hit Girl is a 13 year old girl who fights crime, an effective vigilante. Hit Girl was trained by her father, Damon McCready(also known as big daddy) who also fights crime. She is lethal in martial arts and extremely proficient with weapons . Hit Girl and her father are spurred on to seek revenge for her mother’s death. In the film Hit Girl recruits and trains Kick Ass to then go on to topple the mob boss John Genovese.
For the Hit Girl costume, we will be focusing more on the film version, although there isn’t too much of a difference if any at all. I have placed links below to all the items you will need for this Hit Girl costume, along with information about the items as well.
Hit girl costume
For the Hit Girl costume, I found a complete costume on amazon. It includes the mask, the jacket, leggings, thigh holsters and cape. It does not include the purple wig and the weapon. I will add those below separately. The costume itself was good, especially for the price. I would suggest you order a size small than what you would normally wear as I found a little big. the materials felt good for the most part. Overall a good Hit Girl costume.
Hit girl purple wig
Hit Girl wears a purple wig, for this I got on amazon. It is sold as a hit girl style wig and I have to say that it looks very much like the wig she uses. The fibres felt soft unlike some other wig that feel very fake to the touch. It stayed on my head for most of the night, only falling off once. Overall a good Hit Girl wig.
Hit girl weapon
Hit Girl’s weapon of choice is the double katana. I also found a seller on amazon that advertises a Hit Girl style katana. It measures roughly 40 inches long, which is a small bit shorter than the one used by Hit Girl in the film but It still is a good size. I’m not too keen on the materials used to make it, It’s seems to a cheap hard foam but for the price I should’ve expected that. A ok purchase that did the job I needed it to do but I wasn’t blown away with the quality.
To finally Finnish off the Hit Girl costume, I got a pair of black boots on amazon. I got these previously for another costume and I found them to be a good quality boot for the price. They felt comfortable throughout the time I wore them. They did take a while to break in though.
