We looked at costumes for teenage mutant ninja turtle and noticed that they were really original. So we did get some online ideas for our Homemade Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Couple Costume.
The male material was made up up clothes wire hanger for the shell stuffed with white stuffing. We then fabricated with brown and decorated with black marker. Inner shell was a hard cardboard box, then fabricated in yellow and decorated. We used red material for knee, elbows and wrist. Lots of green face paint.
Attached a sword box in back of shell. Used a broom stick and tapped with black electrical tape. The female was a green halter dress and we cut out yellow fabric and sewn in on the front of dress and decorated. We made the back shell with an aluminum turkey bowl and fabricated with black marker decorated. She used yellow paint for the eyes.
