Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
We had so much fun making and wearing these costumes! We bought matching green sweat suits, sparkly and scaly green fabric for our shells, colored fabric for each of the turtles, green face paint, and we reused an old pair of pleather pants from a thrift store for the front turtle plates. I painted pieces of cardboard with the Turtle initials for the belts and used some scrap fabric that had been sitting in my closet since last Halloween.
