“My cousin’s friend let her son wear this hoodie on picture day if he promised to take it off for the photo.”

Thankfully, he didn’t listen.

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.

turtle

Mexican lucha libre wrestlers are known for unique costumes, like these guys who are dressed as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. What you’re seeing here is not one but three different teams inspired by TMNT. Only these turtles are fighting each other.

It starts with AULL’s Tortiguillos Karatekas versus IWRG’s Tortugas Ninja in an epic four on four match. Then Las Tortugas Mutantes jumped into the fray and attacked everyone else. Glorious chaos ensued and it was all caught on video. It’s not over either, as a 16-person fight with men, turtles, and ninjas is being worked on for the future.

See the video after the break.

hero

Harley Renshaw is only 5-years-old and he is facing the battle of his life against a rare form of cancer called neuroblastoma. The cancer is in his kidneys, neck, lungs, and bones and Harley is now being treated at Royal Manchester Children’s hospital in a clinical trial. He’s had over 80 days of chemotherapy, and he’s gotten through it all in part by wearing a special Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle outfit.

The Manchester Evening News reports that it’s actually the protective mask that helps him stay still during treatments and he says the TMNT decoration makes him feel stronger. He also has special “beads of courage” that he wears to help him keep his spirits up. He’s already had one surgery to remove a tumor from his kidney and now thinks of the scar on his stomach as a “pirate scar.”

He was recently awarded a Cancer Research UK Little Star Award, which honors the challenges kids like Harley face when battling cancer. Cowabunga, dude, you keep up the fight!

tmnt-panty-5-pack-pre-order-5

More panties. I’m all about the panties. Except, I’m going to admit that I have a teeny bit of confusion with this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panties set.

It’s a 5 pack of panties, but they only show 4 styles. Is the fifth one Shredder? April O’Neil? Did one of the Turtles get two pairs? No idea. But they’re cute, so here ya go.

You can also get TMNT boxers. They’re sold separately, so you can decide if you want one turtle or all four.

DIY Krang Hat

If you’re not fully committed to making an elaborate Krang from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costume like this one, you can cheat and simply craft a Krang hat. Instructables user ashleyjlong made the hat for an art gallery project and then realized it would work well as part of a costume. All you need is pink fleece or an already-made pink fleece beanie, felt, black paint or yarn, glue, stuffing, and basic tools.

Creating Krang’s creepy but cute face is pretty straightforward, and this is definitely a project you can tackle in an evening. So, if you still don’t have any kind of Halloween costume to wear, this is a good last minute idea.

See a couple in-progress shots after the break.

The weather is going to get cold soon and this hat will keep your kids warm and have them looking fantastic. It’s a Batman laplander with wings on the sides and when you squeeze the left tassel it activates a pump that makes the wings flap! There’s also one with Michelangelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with swinging nunchuks.

TMNT plastic rings

You don’t to be a teenage, a mutant, a ninja, or a turtle to wear these kitschy TMNT rings by Etsy seller Pinderella Plugs. The adjustable rings are silver plated, and the turtles are cast from resin. They’re colorful, and the style has a very ’80s vibe. I love it.
