Costume Information

Cost : £200 materials
Awards : Next time put a sock there award, Minami 17

This is a prototype of a new technique I'm using. When I'm happy with it I'll do a tutorial on how it works.

Some things about this costume:

It's built using pepekura patterns that are heavily edited

It's made of foam covered in PVC

Everything besides the head was made in less than a week with Matt and Timber helping me cover the PVC with glue. On monday morning it was paper being printed off.

It's built to be as comfortable as possible so I can do funny shit in it.

So utterly gutted I miss this awesomeness in action :(

The smiley icon just isn't enough to express my woe for not seeing this in person.

But damn! Epic costume. Love the armour.

That is so awesome. Loving the Ironman pants. Iron man is one I wanna make. I was looking at the pepakura to make it but was gonna do it out of fibreglass. How easy is it to make from the materials you used?
