Archives For Iron Man

I can’t say I have ever been one for wearing shirts that are battery operated operated just because they really don’t sound like they would be very comfortable and I would be worried about the wash machine taking a real toll on them and breaking them not long after I buy them but as far as battery operated shirts goes, this Iron Man 3 shirt is probably the coolest I have ever seen!

The awesome folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this officially licensed Iron Man 3 delux hero Tony Stark light-up LED shirt for just $34.99!  To power up the cool looking Arc Reactor, you will need 3 AAA batteries (not included) but that seems like a small price to pay to look this cool.

I should note there are special washing instructions that you need to pay attention to.  The product description tells what you need to do to remove the electronic components before you can throw it into a machine to wash and if you want to make sure the light keeps working, I would probably listen to it.

I consider myself lucky to have gone the first 26 years of my life without breaking any bones.  Especially as a kid, it seemed like all of my friends broke something at one point or another whether it was an arm, leg or something as small as a finger.  I guess that was kind of the downside of the full contact basketball we used to play which pretty much had all the violence of hockey.

Well, speaking of broken bones, Reddit user Brettman3 got bored of the plain old white cast he was sporting after breaking his wrist so he decided to color it to make it look like Iron Man’s suit.

I think it turned out pretty cool and this is definitely what I would consider taking lemons and turning them into lemonade.  However, if he really wanted to make this super cool, I think a cluster of LEDs in his palm would make this the coolest cast ever!

Have you ever broken a bone and done something cool with the cast like this?  If so, I want to hear your tale in the comments below and feel free to share pictures if you have them!

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!

When most people think of Iron Man, they think about the seemingly indestructible suit of armor.  Well, I think it is time to get that image out of your head and think about an Iron Man cocktail dress instead!  It might not be as practical in a fight, but probably score you some drinks at the bar from fellow Iron Man lovers.

This Iron Man cocktail dress was originally designed by Kelsey Michelle, but it was DeviantART user Spwinkles that took the initiative to actually make the dress.

I’d say the dress turned out amazing!  I love how even the heels are Iron Man themed.  This is definitely a cool twist on Iron Man cosplay and I hope more great cosplay ideas get turned into cocktail dresses in the future because this is amazing!

It seems everybody is wanting to get into the Iron Man lookalike game these days including R2-D2.  However, while most cosplayers seem to want to replicate the Iron Man armor down to the smallest detail, Evil Brainmate decided to go in another direction and make this awesome Iron Man dress!

Apparently this dress was worn at the Denver Comic Con this past weekend (being the idiot I am, I decided not to go when Wil Wheaton dropped out) and I suspect it turned a few heads.  I’d say the dress turned out pretty well, and for those wondering, yes, the arc reactor does light up!

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!
