This homemade costume for groups entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest, and won 3rd place in the Most Creative Costume nomination!

A word from Nichole, the 'Ninja Turtles' costume creator:

This was last minute for a costume party. We used disposable roaster pan spray painted green for the shell. Green paint to paint their bellies and abs. Cut out old colored t shirts for head, arm, and knee bands. Used ribbon and cardboard for belts and spruced up with some hot glue and crafting blings. Dyed some knee highs and sports bras green. Didn't turn out as green as we thought it would be. Whipped together some green tutus with different tulle we had (they are very easy to make). From start to finish we had about two hrs and maybe $10 into them and they were a hit. Cutest ninja turtles I've ever seen!

Those are really creative outfits. I liked the outside the box approach, putting your own take on the character's look while still being very faithful to the look of the turtles. You are also both really cute.

What did you use to keep the shell on?

#3 comment by Nichole September 23, 2013

We used a knife and carefully made 3 holes. One on each side of the bottom and one in the top center. We took two long lengths of ribbon and ran through the bottom holes and tied a knot at each bottom. Then put them on the girls ran the ribbon up like back pack straps, pulled each ribbon out the top hole, pulled for a good fit and tied in a bow.

How did you make the tutus? I love this idea!

#5 comment by Nichole September 29, 2013

We used an elastic head band and tulle. You take the roll of tulle which you can get at any craft store and cut out strips about 12-18in. We took a kids chair flipped it over and put the headband around two legs. This made it easier to attach the tulle. Then you take a strip fold in half and at the fold you put it under the elastic, pull the two ends up and through loop made in the tulle. It is easier than it sounds just hard to explain.I will see if I can add a picture of how to knot the tulle on the elastic.Then you just continue all the way around. You can use as much or as little tulle as you want. The more you use the fuller it will be!

What kind of paint did you use?

#7 comment by Nichole September 30, 2013

We had a green and a yellow face paint from a costume store. But when I tried to do the yellow it blended with the green and made the lighter color green and I actually lines that better. Don't forget to vote!

#10 comment by Nichole June 22, 2014

We used green body/face paint And then mixed a little white for the light green to make the ab muscles and just painted it directly on skin.

We cut strips of old t shirt for the headband and to tie around knees. We truly made this costume with stuff we had around the house!

Did you girls wear shorts under the tutu? If so, what color?

#17 comment by MLER732 September 16, 2014

Cute outfits girls, but of course my "eye for detail" boyfriend reminded me that the shells should have actually been brown lol still cool idea nevertheless ladies
