    hey everybody,
    heres the start of my turtle costume i'm aiming for mikey from the 2014 movie
    i know its not a 100% accurate turtle shell but i kinda just winged it i first tried dremeling the rings on the shell but i didnt like the look so i decided to go for the layered look instead

    if i coat the top(muscle suit) in liquid latex would that work to give the rubber type look?
    or if anyone knows of anyone selling one please let me know :)

    does any body know what brand mikey's hoodie is?
    it looks like its some sort of surfer logo (blue wave perhaps??)

    i've purchased some black high tops from ebay for £5, the shoes are not the same as these (Fila M Squad trainers) because they would be too expensive to cut up with prices ranging fom £30-£70, so im going top paint them and add orange fabric to match the 'M'

    offical fila ones
    ones i bought

    i also noticed that the wrist bandages are different colours, ones white and ones more beige but i found this art on the net where the beige is replace with orange which i really like so will prob go for that

    just a bit of a update
    got the bottom half going......

    i bought some thermal trousers and latex one leg from just above the knee, and the other one on the calve muscle for where theres a rip it leaves abit of skin exposed
    i bought some cycling trousers (£10) to go over the top as this was much cheaper than buying a diving suit to just cut up as on ebay there about £90

    a quick test, to see what it looks like

    IMG_20151002_174731.jpg IMG_20151002_174757.jpg

    and just statred the trainers

    i know the glue marks stand out loads but they should disappear once dried

    finally got round to attempt to finish this costume hopefully in time for cardiff comic con in two weeks

    just started on the necklaces....still need the glasses and i need to paint the pendant to stand out abit more

    i made some hand armor???? using foam with coke bottle plastic on the top with some split pins in the corner then some usb cable wire
    IMG_20160221_205507.jpg IMG_20160221_123012.jpg

    the trouser i cheated as i cant afford the dive/wet suit (£200) just to cut up...so i decided to go with some cycling trousers and using foam copy the patches then used orange puff paint for the edging, i think it still need another layer or two.
    IMG_20160220_192140.jpg IMG_20160220_192133.jpg

    the shoes look abit goofy so i will adjust them but just took a few pics and i will pad out around the knees more

    IMG_20160228_161247.jpg IMG_20160228_161337.jpg

    just a dress rehearsal.
    i still need to....
    latex the neck area up higher,
    paint the left arm tattoo
    paint the shell grafitti
    and purchase.....
    x2 nunchuks
    x1 elbow pad with white strap
    x1 knee military pad

    i know its not as good as what ive seen on here but i am very pleased with it so far as i am not very experienced at costume making and alot of the things i've had to do on this is a first for me.

    thanks for looking
