Never built a costume from start to finish before, sure I have a clonetrooper armor but that was a kit.
I wanted an Ironman, and my kids wanted to see me build one, I dont have a lot of money so I bought some foam mats they are for under sleeping bags, I got them for $4.00 a roll, at my local bargian store.
I am also using floor mats. the good thing is the foam mats for the sleeping bags have a nice smooth finish, I have tried glue and painting on scraps so i know what to expect.
anyway I have tried to keep it as real looking as possible, but to be honest it is above my level right now.
Anyway hope you enjoy.
always looking for adivce and helpfull hints.
be kind!!.... lol
