So if you haven't read my first post, I'm attempting to make a basic Iron Man armor for the regular Halloween drunkathon we host every year at our house.
After reading through tons of useful information on this site, I decided to go with Sintra, and try my hand at it. Starting off was rough as I was using a Heat Gun (not very good), and have now started using the boiling water method which works amazingly good, even if I have to ruin a nice big cooking pot.
I'm not going for picture-replica quality by any means right now, just kinda seeing what I can easily and quickly do with the Sintra material, and putting together something that will resemble Iron Man armor before Halloween. More than likely, the "armor" part of my costume will probably look like old-Iron Man basic getup armor, as seen in the picture here:
Although, once I piece together the helmet, I hope to have it somewhat closely resemble that of the upcoming movie helm/mask (provided I have the time and Sintra skills to do so.
So anyways, my first 3 pieces of Sintra I have put together as a shoe/boot covering. Once I figure out the best scratch-proof method of painting this stuff, it will have a metallic red shine like the movie armor, and will be riveted together at the joints and be flexible like a shoe would. I know it's prolly basic and crappy, but it's a start!
Here's a thread about the movie trailer with some good pics of the movie armor: http://www.thedentedhelmet.com/showt...light=Iron Man
