This outlines everything I did to create my first Iron Man suit with a mechanized helmet. I have always loved the look and concept of Tony Stark's Stealth armor. This was the first serious costume I ever made and it was a lot of learning through the entire process. Start to finish took me about 8 months during my free time. I'll caveat that all these techniques or methods are by no means my own and I have learned from many great people out there. I am simply documenting the methods I used from all the wonderful resources out there on there net.
Here's my facebook page and my cosplay blog with more WIP pictures: http://otakuandfit.com https://www.facebook.com/andrewscosplay
Here is also a grainy video of moving around in the armor.
