Adult Ninja Halloween Costumes! Ninjas have a very distinct image that Hollywood has created for them as well as embellished. Known as stealthy, nocturnal agents that would sneak up on their enemies to commit acts of violence, Ninja's were nothing to be messed with. Not much is known about the origins of the Ninja's aside that they were usually recruited from humble beginnings. Farmers or poor villagers were sought as they could easily be taught the skills needed to be a good Ninja, as they knew how to fight already just in order to survive. Although most Ninja's today are portrayed wearing all black, true Ninja's actually dressed in Navy Blue to blend into their surroundings during nighttime operations. Ninja's were known to also dress in appropriate disguises and infiltrate enemy camps in order to obtain information or to commit assassinations. Ninja's have always been known for committing very unorthodox acts of war. The Katana is the most common weapon associated with Ninja's, and serves many purposes. It is a moderately curved Japanese sword with a blade usually longer than about 2 feet. The grip of a Katana is quite long which enables the Ninja to use both hands while battling with it.
