Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Last Updated: 04-06-2010

This costume has always been a dream of mine. It is my second major costume endeavor, my first being Link from the Legend of Zelda.

I have been fortunate enough to have found some excellent source photos to refer to, and as such expect this costume to be much more true to the character than might have been possible.

The body is made from latex painted on elastic fabrics. The shell and chestplate are carved out of upholstry foam, and lined with WonderFlex for stability. The chestplate is also wrapped in a faux leather which was custom cut to fit the shape of the shell. At the top of the shell, another type of faux leather was sewn accordian-style to allow a snug fit to the top of my torso. The knee and elbow pads were made from scratch using upholstry foam and yet another type of faux leather. And, the bandanas were made from a stiffer polyester fabric and stuffed with cotton batting.
