Iron Man Power Suit #3 | Casting Armour Pieces | James Bruton



This video shows how I made a my Iron Man suit pieces.

The biggest challenge making your own Iron Man power suit – that you can actually wear! – is how much detail. Every expects it to look accurate in terms of colour and shaping, and if you’re going to get inside it latches, strapping and so on is a must but… what else? Do you motorise the faceplate? How much lighting and depth do you give the unibeam? What kind of flexibility and motion do the knees, knuckles and neck need? Well, hopefully you’ll agree I went all out on this Iron Man build. Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Iron Man Mark 1 Costume (Mark I, Mark One)



Here is an awesome Halloween costume made for 2009. It’s an accurate replica of the Iron Man Mark I costume that Tony Stark made in the cave out of scraps!!!! It has a light-up arc reactor, a missile arming button that lights up and a hatch that opens to reveal a guided missile. The guy who wore this costume on Halloween won first place in every costume contest he entered and had girls flocking around him asking to have their photo taken with him. This costume fits a large man: 6′ to 6’6″, 190 to 240 lbs, and will be for sale on eBay on March 1, 2010.
