Master Splinter is known for teaching the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and in the case of this costume, he could probably teach us a few things. Made by Baback Moussavi (also known as Diffuse Moose Creations), this Splinter cosplay has been crafted with the utmost attention to detail. The robes are tattered and aged, the fur looks realistic, and the hands and nails have been sculpted and painted just right. Diffuse Moose Creations hasn’t posted any in-progress pictures of the initial build at this time, but he is in the process of creating new gloves because one of Splinter’s hands is showing some wear. Moussavi explains:
I plan to tackle something new: molding my hand and sculpting a new hand over the plaster mold. Then making a new hand out of liquid latex.
