Adolescent Abnormal Samurai Chelonians
Or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, if you want to be technical.
This little guys are the first of the dolls completed for NC Comicon
, and I’m a little bummed I won’t be keeping them. Despite all my incredibly girlish hobbies and tendencies, I did watch a ton of “boys” cartoons growing up and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was one of my favorites. (I’m still a little tomboyish about television and movies; I love zombie movies and I can’t watch a romantic movie without making puke noises. Because I am so mature.) I found this green fleece online and immediately knew it had to be turtles.
Donatello was my favorite, I think mostly because purple was my favorite color as a kid. He’s also a big geek, so that doesn’t hurt. I think my favorite part was always the the incredibly unrealistic inventions he would create, most of them pure deus ex machina. His voice actor, Barry Gordon, also did work is several other of my favorite cartoons, including Darkwing Duck and Swat Kats.
Each of the turtles has a little plush version of their signature weapon, held on with hook and loop tape so they’re removable. I think Michelangelo’s little nunchucks are my favorite.
Now I just need to make them some little plush pizza for a snack.
