If you are an Iron Man fan and would love to cosplay in a replica suit but do not necessarily have the money and time to make a fully-fledged Iron Man suit then this is the perfect project for you. On a personal level, I profoundly admire the Iron Man comic series and the TV actor, Robert Downey Jr. I have yet to mark making a replica of my favorite suit, the Mark 42, off my bucket list, but I have marked off making a set of easy to wear cosplay boot. Honestly, these things just sit in a container shoved at the bottom of my closet now, but when I did wear them I had always had a blast.
This project cost me about $80 dollars overall, which compared to making a resin cast or fiber glass full body suit is a hella-lot cheaper.
The materials I used were:
-clear plastic wrap
-2" green upholstery foam/ cushion foam/ support foam (this has many names depending on where you buy it)
-1/2" green upholstery foam
-1 yard of Gold special occasion metallics fabric
-1 yard of Red special occasion metallics fabric
-Pair of tennis shoes
