Cowabunga: A WIP Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume

Redditor user fuzzydrawings has taken to the sewers (or, you know, a workshop) to make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume. Fuzzydrawings is still at work on becoming a hero on the half-shell, but they shared an in-progress picture and the cosplay is looking excellent so far. It’s comprised of a couple different kinds of foam and spandex and latex. They explain the process so far:

Details on construction:
Body suit is made of muscles carved from upholstery foam, covered in spandex and sewn onto a body suit. Everything was then covered in a second body suit and thin layers of latex applied. (Body suit has yet to be painted).
Front and back shell are made from EVA foam. Front shell was airbrushed using a mixture of oil paint and rubber cement.
Gloves (not pictured) have been sculpted and will be cast in foam latex. I still need to sculpt the mask.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
