Greeting ladies and gents. Fan Expo is done and there is no rest for the weary. It's that time of year again. I have started my son's Halloween 2018 costume. This year my son wants to be The Shredder from TMNT. The 2003 animated series version. As seen above this is the version I am going to build. With some minor deviations I started with the helmet and made a frame on which to build on. I am quite obviously building from scratch so some duct tape templates were made. After putting on the frill thingies I noticed that the back came straight down and didn't flare out like I wanted. I had to do some surgery and inserted some wedges to get a better shape. At this point I am at the stage where I'm relatively happy with the helmet. Some changes to the facemask might be made. Comparison between my first ever prop from 2 years ago. Does anyone think my skills have improved any? Thanks for looking at what is now my 4th cosplay build. As always comments and criticisms are always welcome.
