The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles wouldn’t be who they are without Splinter; he trains and protects them. The fact that he’s a rat presents a furry cosplay challenge, and Instructables user SpicyPandaCreations handled it with seeming ease. Faux fur isn’t easy to work with it and he used a pile of it, foam, faux leather, and other items to build his Splinter outfit. He constructed the pants, chest, and arms as separate pieces so he didn’t have to wear a giant connected bodysuit. Here’s how he made Splinter’s feet – I’m surprised by how straightforward it is:
Take some foam and make a foot. and several toes. (Pic 1)
Glue foam toes to foot.
Glue cardboard underneath foot.
Duct tape entire foam foot.
Hot Glue the fur onto the entire foot.
Take painted nails and glue them on the toes.
Take leather and glue to the bottom of foot (pic 3)
Put on brown socks prior to sticking your shoe inside fur foot.
Masking tape around the foot to hide your shoe.
