Archives For cardboard

Most cosplayers have certain materials that they like to work with but I can’t recall seeing any cosplay made entirely out of cardboard or entirely out of foam.  Well, apparently those are the materials of choice for one Iron Man loving Reddit user.  At the risk of turning into a giant paper cut, they like to make Iron Man suits out of pure cardboard!

Reddit user royal_dump is the Iron Man fanatic with some serious cardboard cutting skills that made these amazing suits out of cardboard.  Apparently they each require 1-2 weeks to make which really doesn’t seem like much time considering the number of pieces and the effort needed to make something that looks this good.  They are also really skilled with foam too as the last picture is of a foam Iron Man suit.

All hail royal_dump, king of cardboard!

If nobody had told me, I would have absolutely never guessed that this very impressive looking Iron Man suit was made out of cardboard.

Mark Pearson, an Iron Man fan from West Yorkshire spent 14 months making this spectacular Iron Man suit out of an ashtray and 400 sheets of fiberglass covered cardboard.  Ironically, this Iron Man cosplay doesn’t even fit Mark!  It fits his 6′ 2″ friend Darren Higgins instead which seems to be a lot of work to put into a suit you don’t even get to wear.  At least it looks like it was worth all of the effort!

I saw the Hellboy movie a couple of years ago and enjoyed it but I can’t say I would call myself a fan of the character.  However, I am a huge fan of awesome cosplay, even if it is of characters I’m not necessarily huge fans of.  A Hellboy fan by the name of Jason Welborn decided to do cosplay a little differently and make his costume out of cardboard.  For something as different as cardboard, I’d say it turned out pretty great!  If you have any awesome cosplay photos you would like to see me post, email me at pcnerd37 [at] globalgeeknews.com
