How to Make a Ninja Turtle Costume for Girls

Making girl turtle costumes is actually quite easy. Here is what you will need:

  • Plain green dress
  • A yard of yellow fabric
  • 3 inch wide ribbon in the color of the desired turtle
  • Half a yard of tan fabric
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun and glue
  • Brown marker
  • Round trash can lid
  • Spray paint…green

Cut the fabric into a rectangle that will be the breastplate of the costume. Make two round edges in the top and bottom and three down each side for the abs.

Glue the fabric to the dress on the abdomen and chest area of the dress letting it completely dry.

Use the marker to outline the abs.

Take the spray paint and paint the trash can lid on both the outside and the inside. Let it dry.

Get the brown marker again and draw the shell plates on the garbage can lid. Each plate should be connected to the next and they should all be pentagons.

Get the tan fabric and cut straps to glue to the shell…one on each side so the shell can be worn as a backpack.

The colored ribbon will be the face mask. Cut eye holes out and then tie it around your head.

Cut strips of the tan fabric to be used as knee and elbow pads and use the rest for the belt.

That’s it, you now have a female ninja turtle costume. Now you just need three friends with corresponding ones and your play group will be complete!
