The Deterioration of Raphael's Suit: A Nightmare Fuel Trip Down Memory Lane

Prepare yourself for a trip down memory lane as we delve into the world of the 1990 Ninja Turtles trilogy. However, be warned, what you are about to see may not be for the faint of heart. The iconic suits that once adorned our beloved turtles have not aged well. Over the past few years, these suits have surfaced on various auction sites, restoration company sites, and blogs.

Let's start with Raphael's suit from Ninja Turtles part three. Although it is listed on the prop store auction site as such, some argue that it looks more like a Secret of the Ooze suit. The face is in a state of disrepair, with a hauntingly empty expression, as if the soul has been sucked out of the body. However, the body and shell are still somewhat intact, with the latter still looking great from the back.

It is truly shocking how these once-cool movie trilogies of the 90s have transformed into a state of nightmare fuel. Nevertheless, their current condition serves as a stark reminder of the passing of time and the importance of preserving cultural artifacts.

In conclusion, the deterioration of the Ninja Turtle suits is a tragic sight to behold. Although they may induce fear in some, it is essential to remember their significance in popular culture and the importance of preserving them for future generations to appreciate.
