Cosplay of the Day: These ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Are the Real Deal

These cosplayers take the hobby to the next level with incredibly realistic versions of the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ and a little help from a professional photographer.

Don’t get us wrong — we love the amateur cosplay stuff around here, but sometimes it’s nice to sit back and appreciate some professional work, too. You can’t deny this ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ cosplay isn’t kind of amazing.

The photos were taken by Philip Bonneau for his Heroes + Villains photo series, which also includes characters from ‘Iron Man,’ ‘Batman,’ ‘Spider-Man’ and just about any other property you can think of, but it was these brightly colored photos of the pizza-loving, half-shell heroes that got us the most excited.

Bonneau is selling prints of his photos (there’s about 260 in total) on his Etsy page, and the mission statement behind the project is really inspiring, reminding us why grown-ups cosplay in the first place:

“This collection of images is based around adults reconnecting with their childhood and remembering what it was like to pretend. As most people age that imagination gets lost somewhere in the shuffle of adult life. Stress takes over. The dreams shift from the fantastical to, for some, just getting by and making ends meet. I strive to bring that sense of wonder back to adults. I do so, taking into
consideration that not every boy growing up wanted to be Batman or Superman. Some wanted to be Wonder Woman.”

You can check out more of Philip’s photos by heading over to his Flickr page.
