- Couple have been entertaining thousands with pictures of themselves coordinating outfits with their pet tortoise.
We’ve all observed dogs wearing interesting outfits, and some pet owners even figure out how to get their unmoved cats wearing garments. Although it’s rare when you run over a completely dressed tortoise. Brace yourself for what I’m about to tell you, however, it’s a sight worth seeing.
2. The famous Instagram trend inspired the couple!
The 33 year old couple from Sonoma, California, Kasey Kuchinski and Daniel Rodriguez, were inspired to coordinate their outfits after seeing families take on the trend over social media. Besides, as the pair don’t have any children, they decided to include Ethel, their Sulcata tortoise in their plans instead.
3. The Illustrator Kasey says,
“I was seeing a trend on Instagram where families with children would take photos wearing matching outfits. I just thought it would be funny to do the same but with our tortoise – it’s sort of an inside joke I guess. I try not to spend more than £4 on each outfit, otherwise this whole idea wouldn’t be sustainable for us.”
4. Kasey makes these adorable outfits for Ethel herself.
The 33-year-old has experience with fashion design, so she volunteered to make Ethel’s little outfits. She either makes it from her own material, or by modifying kids’ garments to fit a shell-clad body.
5. The family share their matching outfits on the Instagram page.
Their Instagram page, @etheltheglamourtort is where Kasey and Daniel can be seen wearing fancy outfits with their pet tortoise Ethel.
The pet tortoise has been given a tremendous scope of outfits because of the project. However Kasey hasn’t had the option to keep them all because of the sheer number of small outfits.
6. The precious Ethel is a child to the couple.
Kasey further adds,
“Ethel’s favourite activity is eating; she also likes basking in the sunshine and going for walks in the park. Her favourite treat is bell peppers, she also likes bok choy, zucchini and pumpkin. Normally though, she just eats grass and weeds. Although she is not a sea turtle she really enjoys beach days.There is plenty of sunshine, and a lot of rocks to climb and sand to dig in.”
