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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
