What are Cutout Costumes?

Cutout Costumes are files that you download from our website, print on your home printer, cutout, and assemble for your kids to wear. Our costumes typically contain 6-10 pages that include masks, hats, vests, hands, bracelets, wands, swords and more. All costume files are in pdf format, which means that you will need Adobe Reader to open them. You can download a FREE copy of adobe reader by clicking on the link below:

Paper, Tape & Scissors are all you need to make dozens of costumes!

Our costumes are ideal for all kids ages 3 to 9 (or so) and are made of high quality photo-realistic images that look brilliant on 8 1/2 x 11 Photo Paper!

Just print, cut and attach to your child's shirt with tape following the easy directions that come with every costume. Our masks come with extra bands you can tape together to make custom length headbands. Arm and Hand pieces are taped together with a handle so your kids can grab & go! Our accessories include Wands, Swords, Blasters, Maps, Balls and Planes!

It's Fast & Easy!

We've arranged the costumes on paper so you make the fewest cuts possible! See how by viewing the directions for one of our costumes here.

Use Photo Paper or Card Stock for Best Results!

The best and least expensive alternative to Photo Paper is 110 weight Card Stock Paper (250 sheets) available wherever you buy printer paper. Photo Paper and Card Stock are noticably thicker than regular paper and hold up far better. Print some of our Free Stuff to see what we mean.

Our Ninja costumes come with a special grayscale file suitable for printing on Colored Card Stock to save on colored ink. There are several brands available in 5 color packs.

It's a Coloring Book too!

All our costumes come with an outline version for your kids to color and decorate their own unique costumes! We recommend printing these on Card Stock so they can wear their creations! You can use regular paper for great fun just coloring.
