Questions Regarding Coming Out of Their Shells

Okay. So I wasn't old enough at the time Coming Out of Their Shells was a big deal. While I still find some of it cringeworthy, I think it has a little bit of charm. I don't hate that it exists. Yet, I'm confused. Everywhere I go, I can't seem to find the answers to a few questions I have about the tour.

First off, did anyone on here see the tour when the turtles had their original costume designs? When I mean "original," I'm referring to the ones seen in "The Making of Coming Out of Their Shells." Also, when I'm referring to those costumes, I mean the two different ones.

The costumes where they are wearing those white sneakers involves the biggest question I have - Are they wearing white socks or white leg warmers? I have been studying some of the clips, and they come off like huge puffy 1980s socks. I see no break where the green skin may show. But I can't tell, because the quality of the video isn't great.

Also, the one performance that is on the video, was that a real live performance, or was that a rehearsal? I heard kids cheering, but I saw no crowds.

I never saw it live on stage.

Rock-band Turtles just... wasn't my thing.

Know anyone here who would know and help answer these questions?

Note: Yes. This is my signature. I thought it looked cute.

Shoot, I went to one of the shows at Six Flags but I can't remember the details related to your question. Sorry.

The funny thing is that people compare this to the comics, cartoons and movies.

Remember this was during the years when the Turtles were everywhere. Putting them together as a pop group should be compared to their appearances at the Oprah Winfrey Show or the New York City Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Wasn't there someone among us who supposedly created a Turtle suit based on the designs of this show? Maybe they might have done some deeper digging on this?

I suggest checking out this interview with Bob Bejan, producer, lyricist, composer and the voice of Michelangelo for the tour. It's been a while since I listened so I don't remember if they address your questions, but nevertheless it's worth a listen.
