Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


one small dot close to the eye is enough usually, at least in some cases, and you can hardly see it when looking. I do remember hearing about the slits. Thanks for the pics Prox.

If you're just doing one, for the shell, if you did the sculpt from foam sheet, then sealed with wood glue you could epoxy right over it, after curing take some acetone and melt out the foam, then clean it up add mounting for the harness and that's done. Cheaper then molding and casting. You could thicken up a batch of epoxy with filler to do the final detail work. If you;re doing it for 4 people, mold and cast is more practical.

If you're sculpting it, you could still use the foam as a base, rough shape it, wood glue to give the clay something to stick to, then sculpt the detail. Unless of course you want to make a huge water based clay sculpt, probably in the 500-1000 pound range.

Mold with brush on 50 and fiberglass support shell probably 2 or 3 part mold, then cast in fiberglass.

Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


Alright guys I want to start constructing these suits but first I want to make a full body cast but I don't know how to. What are the materials I need and where can I get them?

Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


Thanks Clevlandfx. Quick question, are the suits in the movie made of foam latex? If so, how do I iinclude it into the molds and where do I buy it?

Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


they appear to be, and I would assume them to be. Monster makers sells foam, as does burman, and a few other places. I use monster makers foam, developed by McLaughlin during his time on star wars movies. Fairly forgiving, nice product, and still used by lots of shops.

Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


Well after a lot of researching, i realized that this was not going to be cheap to make. To make one suit it would cost at least $1000 bucks. I was wondering, does anyone know of another way to make these suits for cheap. Maybe sfuff a spandex suit with foam for the muscles. It's an idea. Does anyone else have any ideas to make these suits?

carve the muscles out of sheet foam, cover them with spandex, then apply to an undersuit. It's one cheaper way to go about it. I'm sure there are others.

Re: NINJA TURTLE SUITS


I've been batting around this idea:

FACE: Make a prosthetic, use a bald cap, some face makeup, and a bandana.

SHELL: Fiberblass, or something cheaper that would get that basic "hard" idea across.

PADS and BELTS: Make em or buy em...

BODY: No muscle suit, no nothin. Just paint your body green. If you go to the gym a bit, it could look really cool!

This is the method I'm gunna try. It'd certainly be cheaper than a full body suit!
