Pardon me if this is the wrong place for this thread, but I wasn't sure where else to post it and I'm pretty new to the site.
I'll start by saying that I REALLY want a nice TMNT movie "hero suit replica" and also that I'm 6'2 and 220lbs... All the build I've seen have been for fairly smaller guys. I'd pay money for a suit... if I could see it before paying for it. But since that likely won't happen... I feel I may have to make my own.
I'm fairly crafty and my wife is quite the artist so I'm hopping that if we combine our powers with the knowledge and guidance of some RPFers that I'd give it a shot and hope for the best.
The head seems the most difficult... so for that I was just planning on buying a mask from the prop shop site and either painting my suit to match it, or vice versa.
So where do I start? I have NEVER done anything like this before. I tried doing some google searches but didn't know where to start.
Something else I'd consider is making molds of my arms (however I do that), then building it up to the shape I want (however I do that) and then sending the molds to someone that knows how to pour foam latex (or however they do that).
Any help would be greatly appreciative, thanks in advance!
PS: I've looked at all the turtle builds here, and have an idea of how the process should work, but just missing all the details... what clay to buy, etc.
