Foot Soldier mask
An original mask used in the production of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, the 1991 superhero comedy sequel directed by Michael Pressman.
Masks such as this can be seen worn by the various Foot Soldiers throughout the movie. Constructed from a thin spandex like material the mask features large eye holes with a number of metal rings to the nose area to aid breathing and several velcro strips to the neck which would fasten to the tunics, the mask is complete with its original red hachimaki, or headband, which features an embroidered symbol to the front. The interior neck area of the mask features a makers label hand inscribed 'RICH' in black marker, most likely for credited Foot Soldier Terry D. Rich.
The mask remains in excellent production used condition exhibiting some seat staining and lacking the mesh covering to the eyes, otherwise very fine.
An instantly recognisable and highly displayable artefact from this popular franchise.
