She’s launched a Kickstarter to produce these bats in bulk so that more people can get their mits on these adorable little creatures.

PugmirePugsteady and Onyx Path Publishing have teamed up to create a fantasy tabletop game called ‘Pugmire’, and they’ve created a Kickstarter project to make it happen.

What is Pugmire? Well, creator Eddy Webb describes it as “Lord of the Rings meets Planet of the Apes, but with dogs”. I probably don’t need to go on because you’re already sold. I’m guessing a lot of people felt that way because the project funded almost instantly—and now they’ve started opening up all sorts of stretch goals.

When it comes to footwear, humanoid warrior turtles don’t have many options. Our favorite mutant chelonii needn’t worry, though – artists Hussain Almossawi and Quintin Williams have got them covered.

Despite the fact that the Ninja Turtles are, in fact, fictional, they’ve designed special sneakers for them. Designed for comfort, ergonomics, style and – importantly – for feet with two honkin’ great big toes on them, any self-respecting radioactive reptile should find these a rather comfortable option for their day-to-day ninja-ing.

They’re even color-coded for each turtle, which is a nice touch.

Check out some photos of the artists’ work below.
