I am new here to the dented helmet but am not new to prop building in general. I have decided to start an Iron Man project and wanted to share progress with all of you out there. I have seen the Iron Man costume by TMP and I must say how impressive that truly is. I would buy a costume but I want one that is going to truly mimic the movie costume.
I have decided to create an Iron Man costume that is the precise size of the one in the costume, one that is as close as possible and still able to be worn and have movement. It should be the same or similar dimensions to the one in the movie. I basically want to start this thread to just show the progress overall.
I have just begun the project and don't have the luxury of working on it every day. I intend to post updates with pictures to get any opinions you all may have. This will be a labor of love for me as I have always liked Iron Man. I hope you all will follow along with my progress. I am a firm believer that by sharing all of our work with eachother, we all get better.
The project is made out of .5 inch blue foam. I have never used this medium before so there is of course a learning curve. Enjoy.
It all started with a design on the foam and started to carve it.
As it was a few days ago.
