We all start out with a idea in our heads, and when we think of this idea, it always seems like the greatest idea we’ve ever thought of, right?   Especially, if it’s an idea that allows us to be completely free creatively.   We think that we’re going to set the world on fire with our idea or design, and we envision it finished and perfect.    But most times our ideas simply just don’t pan out–whether that’s because of poor creative execution, lack of funds for materials, or what have you–our realized vision often doesn’t come out exactly as we had created it in our minds.

So, we’re thinking that’s pretty much what happened with the below Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes.   These costumes clearly went wrong at some point during the conception phase.   Whether, again, it was just a lack of funds to buy the materials needed to create their D.I.Y. Turtles costumes or lack of invention, or just pure laziness–we’ll never know.   One thing we do know however, is that these Turtles costumes gone wrong have pictures associated to them now.    You be the judge.  Remember, we’re not making fun of these Turtles costumes, we’re merely pointing out the perils and errors of the creative process and how it can all go wrong if not carefully monitored or thought out in greater depth.

Lastly, and most importantly, we can’t hold it against any Turtles fan who wishes to go out and buy one of the poorly-designed Ninja Turtles costumes that are created for profit and not Turtles fandom.
