    Oct 6, 2012, 10:17 AM - I AM IRON BOY - My Iron Man build for my 5yo (pic heavy) #1

    Here is the first Halloween test fitting for my 5 year-old son's Iron Man armor. The only thing missing are the shoulder bells, which are finished but are currently drying. The helmet is a foam core, with resin and Bondo on the outside.

    You make me feel like such an inadequate father. This is awesome and something you guys will always have together. The suit looks great!

    It didn't take too long. The whole suit was completed in about 3 months. That's with me only working nights & weekends. Much easier to construct that papercraft, nevertheless, I like the finish of paper/pepakura resin armor.

    Awesome job. nice work on the suit, but I think you should be commended more for taking the time to build this for your son.

    We are doing an Avengers Halloween family theme this year. I'm going as the comic book version of Nick Fury, my wife will be Black Widow, my oldest will be the TFA version of Captain America, and my middle one will go as Spiderman. I know, Spiderman had a brief stint in the Avengers, but he's really excited about it. My youngest, as you can see will be Iron Man.

    I'm almost done putting the eyes on Spiderman & have a few alterations left on the Captain. Pics will be forthcoming.

    LOL, Each year I keep telling myself I'll recoup the expenses of making these by selling them on eBay. Each year I just can't do it. Here are the costumes I've built over the years.

    Every single one of these costumes sit in my basement collecting dust. I just can't seem to be able to part with them.

    You're an awesome father and those costumes are simply incredible. I can't wait until I can make costumes for my boy, Jack...but he's only a month-old The real Halloween fun with my son won't happen for years! The most I can do for him this Halloween is help my wife make him a garden gnome costume (I'm on hat and beard duty).
