The Ultimate Ninja (TMNT 2003 Cartoon)


New Member
I don't post here a lot but here's my new cosplay I'm working on. The Ultimate Ninja is from the 2003 TMNT cartoon series and while he's not a major villain I think his design looks cool. I'm doing this as a speed build in time for Special Edition: NYC in a few days.

Here's his design in the show (not too many good reference pictures are online):

I brought the red wig, the swords, sheath, tabi ninja shoes, and a blue karate gi as the base of his outfit.

I brought an airsoft mask to convert into an evil demon mask. I made the horns out of air dry clay and then used epoxy hardener (which is very annoying to sand smooth), I glued the horns and then painted the mask.

I then started on the arm gauntlets and yes they are made out of duct tape. I used the same useful method when making my Winter Solider arm last year that made it flexible and easy to put on. I used 6 layers of PVA glue and now I'm starting to harden it using a mixture of Durham's rock hard water putty and PVA glue.

That's all I have now but I'm about to start working on the cape. Not sure what that style is called but I guess I'll wing it.
