Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have been popular for decades, starting as a parody comic book in the 80s and transforming into a huge franchise with two successful cartoon series, several movies and of course a ton of turtle toys. Known for its mix between goofy jokes and exciting fight scenes and action, Ninja Turtles has been a favorite among kids and adults alike. Thanks to a wide cast of supporting characters Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles makes a great costume idea for kids, adults, men and women. Of course the best way to tackle a Ninja Turtles costume is to do a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles group costume with all four of the guys, Splinter, Shredder and of course a red head to play April O’Neil.
The Ninja Turtles are a team of crime fighting anthropomorphic turtles that were transformed by ooze, trained in the art of ninjitsu by their sensei, Master Splinter. Ninja Turtles costumes are available for sale, but some dedicated fans have success creating their own homemade versions.
While they face many foes, the main villain of the series is Shredder, leader of the Foot Clan. The Shredder costume takes a lot of care to create with spiked gauntlets and shoulder pads as well as spiked weapons on his hands.
Perhaps some of the easiest Ninja turtles costumes to create are April O’Neil and Casey Jones costumes. April was a reporter in the original series who wore a yellow jumpsuit with white boots and a short red hair cut. However in the new animated series April is a scientist and looks a lot different. Casey Jones is a pretty simple costume to recreate as Casey wears a hockey mask, street clothes and carries an assortment of gym equipment that he uses as melee weapons.
