That is probably the best ninja turtle costume I've ever seen! There aren't many good ones out there but this one is really impressive! I'm making a Donatello costume for an upcoming convention and I'm a bit new at costuming, so may I ask how the head and hands were made? For the body I'm going to be using a spray painted muscle suit.
Sure thing! My boyfriend made the head like so: [link] you can follow the link and see the step by step process at he technodromes forum. His dad helped him weld the metal base for the head with the chin strap and everything so it moves. Also the whole suit, including hands and feet were "carved" with an electric carving knife on apolstry foam purchased from a fabrics/arts and crafts store---massively huge rectangles of it that looked like we were making a bed or something. he carves it into pieces and then glued them together with really strong epoxy glue (e5000 i think it's called--also at michaels and crafts stores) then the whole thing was painted with latex paint--which is flexible--then painted again with spray paint and sealed. Follow the link and maybe you can even talk to him one on one I sometimes let him on my Deviantart tho lol.... PS: You can see the suit in action in this episode of his webseries: [link] (I played a foot soldier extra)
