I did this costume awhile ago for superhero day at my school so I will re-do the steps in a mini version (using paint and other editing sofwares).
- Ninja turtle beanie.
( I got mine at spencers but you can find plenty online, ex: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html_nkw=ninja+turtle+beanie+hat&_frs=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m359)
- Two poster boards (yellow and green).
- Plastic sword
- One black sheet of paper
- Glue or tape
- Green washable paint (Enough to paint hands, arms, legs, and face as needed)
- Orange and black paint
- Green shirt (preferably same or almost same green as paint)
- Black shorts
- & Awesome Karate Skills ! :D
Step 1: Making the Shell
Get the green poster board and draw an oval, the size of the oval depends on the size and height of the person.
Take a good estimate or measure before cutting it out.
Step 2: Making the Circles of the Shell
First draw various circles with pencil
then paint the outside of the circles with black paint.
Step 3: Making the Chest
Using the yellow poster board draw the turtle's chest and cut it out.
Use the orange paint to paint vertical and horizontal lines forming the chest and abs.
You can also design a little tattoo wherever you want it.
Step 4: Attaching the String
Flip the chest shell and tape or glue the string as shown in the picture.
(the length of the string depends on the size and height of the person)
Step 5: Wristbands
To make two wristbands use the black sheet of paper cut out two long rectangles and glue them.
or you can buy regular wristbands from the store.
Step 6: Painting Yourself
Lastly all you have to do is paint yourself with green washable paint
and wear your beanie!
Use your sword and show us some ninja tricks :D!
