As an adult, its easy to look back and remember all the things that I used to enjoy as a kid. And like many 80s born babes, I recall some pretty cool television shows that are still being shown today (or will soon be making a comeback).
Rainbow Brite, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Power Rangers (oh, how I loved the White ranger...sigh...), Gummie Bears, Rescue Rangers, Pound Puppies, The Smurfs, and many more...and of course, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Yes, everyone adored those green turtles who lived in the sewers of New York City (getting their groove on with the Ninja Rap) with their father, Splinter. Who, also happened to be a giant rat. And every girl wished they could look like the voluptuous April O'Neil, in her yellow one piece body suit. Ha!
Well, needless to say...the show has had many comebacks, movies, toys, and some pretty cool looking costumes.
I was given the opportunity to work with Costume SuperCenter this year, and try out a costume of my choice...which just happened to be a Michelangelo costume for my youngest daughter. She loves Ninja Turtles, and we surprised her with this for her 4th birthday!!!
The costume features a full length green jumpsuit with a molded chest to represent the underside of a turtle's shell. A brown belt goes around the waist so that the costume fits snugly, and brown elbow and knee pads give the turtles extra protection. A full face mask is included that's green and has an orange facemask painted on it. Priced at $27.96.
Here is a pic of her trying it on:
After wearing this costume on several occasions (mostly around the house for dress up time), I have to say that it really is quite the get up. My daughter is able to use her turtle power, and pretend to be a pizza eating, kung fu fighting ninja. And her friends are pretty impressed when she brings it out for all her playdates :)
I would highly recommend checking out Costume SuperCenter this Halloween, for all of your costume needs! Not only are they super fast at shipping, but they will save you money and time in finding the perfect disguise for you or your little ones to enjoy.
