Coolest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costumes : Michelangelo TMNT, Foot Soldier, and April O’Neil
All three costumes were custom made by my brother, my wife, and me. The key medium that “tied” everything together was colored duct-tape. Just no time to write a full ste-by-step.
Pic 1: We now battle for the damsel in distress – April O’Neil (Michelangelo vs. Foot) All three costumes use colored duct tape in masks, raincoat, boots, belts, accessories, etc.
Pic 2: Michelangelo vs. The Foot – The pair is complete and ready to battle. Turtle head is made of wire frame with green duct tape. Foot mask is made of duct tape. Both have duct tape accessories…
Pic 3: Details: Michelangelo (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles): The head is made with wire frame, green duct tape, and orange felt. Shell is made with wire frame, duct tape, and painted paper mache.
This is where it all started 4 weeks before Halloween, we had the idea to do all four turtles, but doing it right took lots of time, so we did the next best thing with the time we had.
