How to make an Ironman Cosplay: Step by step
What you can do for the clothes is to take a white sweater. It may be an old one, doesn’t need to be a brand new one since you are going to paint it.
You shall paint it red and yellow, according to the original suit, but not too complex. Then you pick up cardboard boxes, reshape them and paint them with the matching shapes and colors of the body parts. Now you have yourself the armored arms, shoulders, back and chest.
The Chest is tricky, here is what you can do: using a big cardboard, cut a big triangle that, when upside down, is the length of your shoulder and goes until the belly button.
Do the same for the back and make sure both these parts match in size with the shoulders when you glue them to the sweater.
Then, you can draw a circle and paint it with fluorescent light, in order to create the heart of ironman – which is the heart of How to make an Ironman Cosplay.
For the legs, you can use cardboard boxes with the shapes of the kneepads, a red scarf – or painted red – with cardboard shaped like armor for the waistband. And you can use the same method to make some cardboard armored shoes to put on with the regular shoes. This will make it better for your kid to walk with it.
For the Helmet, the hardest part, we can give you some hints:
- Use Cardboard to make the back of the head and shin, with the geometric shape;
- Draw the face (forehead, eyes, nose, cheeks and mouth) in a cardboard, with a shape that matches the first part;
- Glue it on the edges and let it dry;
- Do not glue the mouth so that it is possible to breathe with the helmet on.
