Fan creates amazing Iron Man suits out of cardboard


I’ve been trying to recall if I ever made anything out of cardboard, and the best I can come up with is a diorama of The Winged Colt of Casa Mia for a book report in Mrs. Kester’s fifth-grade reading class. I’m pretty sure it received a good grade (let’s go with “A”), but it was surely nothing to write home about — and nothing compared to the amazing Iron Man armor this Reddit user creates.

He describes them, from left, as the Mark VI (from Iron Man 2),  the deep space suit (based on a toy and rumored for Iron Man 3) and the Mark VIII (again, from Iron Man 3), and I’m inclined to believe him. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a winged horse to cut out ….

Sweet. I wonder if you can wear it.

what adhesive did you use?

Can you wear them?

This is not that impressive. I made the exact same thing out of Eva foam and it looks 10 times better, and I’m only 14! It’s not hard at all. He made it using pepakura and everyone who cosplays as iron man or armored heros/villians uses it. I have videos on my youtube account showing my work. The account is joshtimasprime.
