DIY Iron Man Costume Replica Answered

Advanced Iron forum member TMP just completed his custom Iron Man costume just in time for the film's theatrical premiere. Incredible work! Just look at all those details!!!

TMP says he spent $1500-2000 on the material compound alone, never-mind months of trial and error.

It looks a bit bulky, but it makes sense, a real metal costume would look much rougher than it does in the film (The movie's costume was made of rubber, so it could be more dynamic)

It doesn't look as extreme as the film, but it certainly looks more real. Now, if only it could fly......Maybe we can expect more next year?

There's quite a buzz for DIY Iron-Man costumes this year.
