Turn into one of the heroes in the half shell with boys' Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes from eBay
Once a focus of nostalgia for the 1980s and 90s, the TMNT crew were introduced to a whole new generation of children with a reboot of the movies and television shows in the 2000s and 2010s. Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello, together with their sensei Splinter, whirled and kicked their way into kids' hearts and imaginations. The four mutant turtles lived in the sewers, trained with their sensei, and foiled criminals' plots every week. Now boys can dress up as their favourite green heroes with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes from eBay.
What to wear with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume
Some TMNT costumes will only contain the shell piece of the outfit; others will be a full head to toe costume. A mask is vital; blue for Leonardo, red for Raphael, orange for Michelangelo, and purple for Donatello. If you're having trouble finding the right mask, a cotton or polyester stretch headband with holes cut out for eyes will often work just as well. Green face paint is a great choice for those who are dedicated to their outfit; check the safety rating for younger kids who might smear paint from their face into their mouths. Next, green skivvies and leggings – spandex tends to work best. Other knits can sag pretty easily, causing a distraction from the costume itself.
Other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes
While the TMNT gang are definitely the stars of the show, where would they be without Splinter, the sensei that taught them everything they know? Or, for that matter, the villains they face, like Shredder? Finding costumes for other TMNT characters can be a little more difficult than finding turtle costumes, but they are out there. If you're struggling to find a Splinter costume, you can assemble one from a generic grey furry costume, a rat face mask, a stick-on long wispy white beard, and a dark coloured haori style robe.
