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. :P

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) ^^;

Supercon is a convention we have here in Miami, Florida. I didn't get to go to San Diego Comic Con so going to Supecon was a welcomed substitute!

Nice job on the two characters. That is a very impressive turtle. Were the Sai real or were they wonderflex or another sort of plastic or plastic like substance? Love the Yellow jumpsuit with the go go boots. Love the hair colour too. Now with Raph could he see out of the eyes or were they the glass eyes that you can find in creature shops? Just thought I woudl ask. Once again wonderful job on both. ^_^

He actually made the eyes out of those clear plastic gumball machine toy globes and painted them on the inside. He could only see out of his mouth!

The sai were rubber actually, because he's using them (and the costume) in some TMNT fanfilms and he didn't want to actually accidentally stab some of the foot soldier extras lol

Nice. I was wondering if you were doing it as a working piece. Not many will put that kind of effort into a cosplay for TMNT just to have sit around the house to go to a con once in a while. Very nice for the eyes. I think that is the same way they did the eyes for the first movie. i mean as far as the costume wearer seeing. I know we did that @ MGM studios in Fla for the turtle costumes we used there.

Ooh MGM I love it there :) Yeah the visibility is low so when he was shooting the fight scenes in his films the director has to shout specifics of where everything was around him unless he keeps the mouth open. the chin strap made it so the mouth opens and closes but thats like only seeing when he's got his mouth open lol

when we did the con i had to hold his hand and usher him about! ^.^;

You got to be a con-guide/handler. they can be fun but youhave to trust the person. He is lucky you were willign to work with him on it & the fact that you were a matched set was perfect.

Yeah that part worked out pretty well--but when the costume itself is THAT insulated and disorienting its sort of like a mission that you need to be gung-ho about accomplishing. If it wasn't so much labor on the suit itself I don't think he would have been as dedicated to showing it off. Lol I wonder if I could apply to Disney World now and list "Handler" on my resume! ;)

Trust me you don't ever want to work there. You could & they might put you in entertainment. 3 yrs in fur & then you can try out for that spot. normally after 7-10 yrs they will give it to you. ;)
