Iron Man 2 Notes
Series: Iron Man 2
Total Construction Time: 2 days
Debut: Phoenix Comic Con 2013
Personal Thoughts: I had lost a lot of weight before this costume and wanted something to test how comfortable I was with my body. I really liked the Ironette dancers from Iron Man 2 and when I wore this, I had an awesome time! People were also more amazed that my lights actually worked, too!
I had a lot of fun figuring out how to make this. I got a 4-way stretch material in red and yellow and altered a pattern for the top. The top is a bit uncomfortable as I used a stiff interfacing to keep the bottom’s shape for the top. Details were sown into various parts of the outfit which unfortunately also kept it from being stretchy. The belt detaches from the back and the front has velcro so I can pop the emblem onto it. The lights for the hands are detachable and were attached with two different types of glue. The lights are tap-on closet lights that were colored red.
The boots were my first covers ever. I used a pair of white boots lying around from another costume, made a quick pattern, attached a zipper and attached the cover to the boot. The top of the yellow is made of craft foam to keep the shape then attached to the boot by glue.
