Costume Information

I'm probably not the only petite female cosplayer that wishes to be able to dress up as a manly man .. right? well either way I had the idea to create a female version of ironman.
Costume wise, I'll be using the pepakura method with foam and possibly fibreglass. The suit will be similar to the mark 6, but with custom little bits and pieces.

Might possibly create the actual version, just to see which is better :)

Sealing (Posted 14th July 2012)

So I've done every piece for my suit, pretty much, I just have to do the shoes, which I'll work on once I have the shows I'm going to use. I've started sealing up everything, one coat down, probably another 5 to go, to make it really sturdy. I'll have to start looking for paint now too!
