Cowabunga, Dude! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been a part of my life. In fact, I can remember always wanting to be Donatello for Halloween when I was younger, though it unfortunately never happened. Thankfully, there are other nerds I out there I can live through vicariously. Like this guy, who made himself a classic Krang (notice only one ’A’) costume for TheRPF’s 2012 Halloween costume contest.
Created by talented RPF user TVsRobLowe, he apparently chose the character because it was simply something he had always wanted to do. Like any costume designer would, he went through and did sketches before finally getting the costume together with a spandex jumpsuit and some EVA foam. The nasty looking Krang in the android’s belly is made out of Crayola Model Magic, which was then painted accordingly, really bringing it to life.
It’s a truly impressive costume, regardless of your feelings toward 80’s Krang. If you want to see more photos of the finished product, along with some documenting the tedious build process, head over to TheRPF and take a gander.
