Now, when it comes to great cosplay, there's realistic, and then there's borderline terrifying. Create a photo-realistic Deadpool costume, and you've made something awesome. Perfectly transform yourself into Firefly's Mal Reynolds, and the 'con is your oyster. Make yourself into a terrifyingly realistic Rancor, though, and you're not only going to be kicking ass, but wetting pants along the way too.

And the best part? That's an increasingly integral component of modern cosplay.

Which, perhaps, is why this magnificently (and disconcertingly) realistic Master Splinter costume is so glorious:

Yup, that's right: the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' rodent mentor is alive and well and - through the excellent work of Baback Moussavi of Diffuse Moose Creations - seemingly wandering around in the real world.

Better still, you could absolutely throw that costume onto an actual Ninja Turtle-related film set, and no-one would be any the wiser...

I mean, just compare it to the original movie version:

Or, for that matter, the terrifying, fan-base-dividing new movie version:

I reckon it'd stand up pretty darned well...

Though, you still have to imagine that, while wearing it, you'd come up against a little incredulity...

Temporarily, at least...

What do you think, though?
