Iron Man Cosplay - 2 by caffeine-crusader Iron Man Cosplay - 2 by caffeine-crusader
On November 30th I started working on an Iron Man suit to wear to the Avengers movie premier in May. My friends and I are all dressing in costumes, and I claimed Iron Man right away.

The suit is made of regular craft foam, and uses both a 2mm and a 6mm thickness for various parts. It is made using modified Pepakura files and, while not an exact replica of the Mark VI suit, it is fairly close.

Once the weather here clears up a bit I'll be resin-ing and painting, but until then I'll be fine tuning and tweaking the design.

Wow. Love it. I'm trying to make one but I have no idea how to go about it. Could you give me advice?

The main thing is to just go for it - I know that sounds cheesy but it's true. I ended up making the helmet about 4 times total before I was satisfied with how it looked. Basically try and if you get frustrated with a piece start another one. The ab section is pretty simple to make, and it really helped me figure out how to size the rest of the armor. Start there and work into the hard pieces once you get a feel for whatever materials you'll be using.
