Crocheted Turtle Costumes

Turn Your Pet Turtle into King Koopa with this Knitting Tutorial

— June 8, 2013 — Lifestyle
While it may look frightfully intricate and complicated, Jennifer Olivarez demonstrates that with a bit of knitting know-how you can turn your average pet turtle into an amazing King Koopa impersonator.

A perfect project for Halloween festivities, Super Mario party themes and any crafty nerd who loves turtles and has a thing for Bowser, this costume design makes for a stunning upgrade to the normal turtle shell. This brand new look might even give your reptilian pet an energy boost and unleash a speedy demon who starts chasing you around the house, in which case you should be sure to have a few extra throwing bananas handy.

Makeover your turtle with the King Koopa shell.
