love it! how did you design it so he could walk? (more side pics, please!)it looks like it would be very comfortable as a built-in bed. sooo cute. i love the photo of Otis in the turtleneck, too; it reminds me of a James Dean postcard.

Hey Sus,

I made the green turtleneck is the base of the costume. He looks so cute in it on its own that I took a few pictures of him sans shell.

The turtle shell is sort of like a domed pillow that attaches with straps around his body.

I need to shoot some video of him walking around in it to show the full effect. I did take some side view pics - I still need to edit them.

Good grief--this is so much more complicated than the simple orange and black striped t-shirt last year! Question--can a turtle say Boo!? Otis's Grandma

Hilarious! I'm still trying to decide what he must be thinking here... "Oh no, Halloween again..." Or maybe *Big Otis Sigh* "Yeah... my mom's a talented seamstress... wanna make something of it?"
