I love interesting costumes. and sometimes the most simple idea and simple excecution can be the most impactful costumes of all. the following tony stark outfit has gotten much attention at any costume bash and has won me best costume in 3 instances. and the total cost to me for making this briliant costume was 9 bucks .... nothing could be simpler. so here you go an easy and impactful costume, I give you all the Tony Stark!
Step 1: What You Need.
to do this in its simplest form all you need is:
A DOT push light
a red leather glove
a velcro strap
and a sharpie
if you are going for more detail pick up or find some sink and plumbing parts and some copper wiring.
Step 2: Putting It Together (simple)
if you are doing the simple version
all you need it to put some velcro on the back of the light and get the strap around your body and put it under your shirt.
as for the glove cut a whole in the palm and do some lines with the sharpie and BAM your ready to go
Step 3: Putting It Together (detail)
now if you want to wow people with more detail
take the front plate off the DOT light and glue on some shiny sink parts and some copper wire.
the arrangement of it is ultimately up to you. however use reference pics and do your best to recreate what is shown in the movies.
Step 4: FINALLY
now all you need to do is fix your hair and shave your face as best you can to mimic Mr. Stark.
grab a nice suit and your light pieces don't forget your shades
then you are ready to party it up. the ladies love hanging with Tony!
