Homemade Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes

This was our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes for a Uni cruise. We came up with the idea about 2 days before it and went shopping the next day. We brought a green pair of socks each and 8 pairs of green leggings, one pair for our legs and one pair we partially tore in the crotch and put over our arms and shoulders.

It's surprisingly hard to find yellow underwear and singlets so we just bought white ones and dyed them over the afternoon then used a texta to draw the belly and chest bits on the front. Overall apart from our necks and faces and armpits, we were entirely green and yellow.
to make the masks and arm bands we cut up some old pillowcases.

We shopped for less than an hour and spent roughly $20 per person including the dye.
It took a hectic half hour to get sorted out and dressed and we made a huge mess, but it was totally worth it

We stuck out individually and looked great as a group. Big success!

Great job on the costumes! Did you guys have shells? If so, how did you make them?

where did you get the yellow tank tops from? I like how long they are.

Nice job!

You totally inspired me! I made my brothers costume based off of yours. But I gave him a shell and painted his whole face as well. Instead of underwear I gave him shorts and painted them to look like underwear. I also gave him elbow pads and knee pads, like the real ninja turtles. (my shell was made out of a circle sled w/ lines drawn on the back. Then I cut slits and tied elastic arm bands to put his arms in)

And BTW, he won first place in the costume contest! :)
