This Fan-Made Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Costume Is Impressive

It seems that most Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costumes you see these days are of the hoodie variety. They are cute, and you can tell it’s a member of the TMNT but nothing comes close to this movie Michelangelo replica costume by RPF user Dericrw. This suit is incredibly realistic (well, as realistic as a suit based on a talking ninja turtle can be), and Dericrw put tons of hours into crafting it.

He ended up partnering with a friend he met through the online forum (jacobzking), and they made it piece by piece from clay, foam, and silicone among other materials. Their hard work is obvious when you examine the photos – the textures, color gradation, etc is all gorgeous.

See more photos of the costume and in-progress shots after the break.
