How to Dress as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

To get started, you’ll need a green shirt and pants (or a green bodysuit). Next, add a turtle shell to your back (this can be either store-bought or homemade). Finally, don’t forget to accessorize with ninja weapons and headbands.

How Do You Make the Turtle Shell?

Cut two large semicircles out of green craft foam. These will be the template for the turtle shell. Use a hot glue gun to attach the craft foam to the back of the bodysuit. Once the glue has dried, paint the shell with acrylic paint to add detail. Finally, add straps to the shell so that it can be worn like a backpack.

How Do You Make the TMNT Mask?

For the mask, you’ll need felt, scissors, and hot glue. You’ll also need elastic to attach the mask to your head. Once you have all of your materials, cut a wide oval out of the felt. Cut two small slits on the sides of the mask and thread the elastic through them. Tie the ends of the elastic together and adjust for a comfortable fit.

How Do You Make TMNT Ninja Weapons?

This can be done with some simple household materials. For example, duct tape can be used to make swords and knives. To make a sword, simply wrap duct tape around a stick or dowel rod.

For a knife, wrap duct tape around one end of a stick to create a handle, then tape another stick perpendicularly to the first one to create a blade. Child Ninja Weapon Kit - Various Sizes, Multicolor - 1 Set

You can also use cardboard or foam to make ninja weapons. For example, you can cut out rectangular pieces of cardboard and then decorate them to look like ninja quarterstaff. Foam can be used to create different shapes, such as nunchucks or throwing stars.
