I've seen some pretty cool stuff made from foam. In fact I recently made a full body Master Chief costume for my son using camping pad foam from Walmart. Came out better than expected. I have a thread for it here and there are several threads here making iron man suits from foam. Good Luck.

My Iron man camping mat suit was easy to make!
i suggest going down that road if you dont mind a foam like texture...

This could be a very nice suit. The foam is the easiest way to go. I think personally it is. I have tried fiber glass and clay and plastic trash can... 2mm foamies and everything. The best i found wat the foam i use and it comes from a sporting goods store. And it has a smooth texture it is 1/4 inch and i move fine in mine. I am currently doing war machine and will also be doing an iron man with this stuff.
It runs 21$ a sheet but is 30square feet. It is actually the same price as the stuff from walmart but texture is a lot better. For 10square feet at walmart it ends up being 6.50. so i would try to find the sporting good stuff.
Here is a link of foam armor making Mass Effect N7 Armor Build! « Evil FX / BioWeapons.com
hope that helps and shows you what can be done

I came across that tutorial when I was searching google for foam armor guides. It definitely looks interesting and that foam would be much sturdier it looks than regular craft foam. Nor will it have a porous texture. I'll have to look into it more.

You could take a look at Graphic jordan's thread:
i'm pretty sure he mentions what kind of foam he uses and his current build doesn't look to have the foamy texture that some other foam suits have.
i'm really excited to see this come along i've been thinking of making the RESCUE armor for my fiancee if i can ever finish my Iron Man pep.

I would love to see someone make a Rescue suit! I don't think I've seen people build anything other than helmets. You might want to check out the 405th forums if you do decide to go the fiberglass route. They have tons of tutorials and are a very friendly and helpful to newcomers. Either way, I hope you end up making a Rescue suit. (-:
Unfortunately, I can't give any advice on craft foam, and I'm still a fiberglass noob. But I can (and do) wish you luck!

Not terrible, better than anything I could do anyway. Side note - His Berserk armor is....not as good as some others I've seen (berserk happens to be a big deal for me so I take any and all Berserk related material seriously :P). Final side note...P90x is pretty good but I prefer Insanity :P.

Well, Rescue has been upgraded and now has a new look.
The helmet of the latest version of Rescue is closer to
the movie design.

For the front breast area, just buy a cheap plastic female mannequin hanging front and cut to fit. To me, the breast area is the most difficult part of the armor to fabricate. The rest of the armor could be accomplished with plastic trashcan armor, some disk pieces, and baseball helmets for shoulder armor.

we are planning to do this...maybe within the year or when robert experiences his ADHD behavior. LOL

@CSMacLaren -- I definitely prefer the updated version of her armor. The style of the first helmet is too pointy for my liking, which is one of the reasons why I'm not too fond of MasterLe's Rescue armor. That helmet just looks off to me and it doesn't sit right on the model. However, I'm in no way criticizing his work. He probably based his armor off that older design and it's just very... pointed to me.
@LOGANCLAW22 -- Good idea with the mannequin!! I'm worried about the chest area as well. I don't want them to come out looking too pointy or slope ( Another small dislike of MasterLe's armor).
I'm really hoping I can collaborate this with a friend, who can help me with the tech parts and if I do end up doing fiberglass. Right now, I'm still in planning stages, I've got a list of other costumes to work on for D*C this year. (Most of which are Pepper-related. Shocking, right? )
But I would love, love, LOVE to have a Rescue armor, so it is definitely a plan for the future.

I was searching for chest protectors on Ebay and stumbled upon this. Check this out on Ebay for chest portion;
New Women's Chest Protector Size Medium ($25 Value) | eBay
Price is right also

Interesting design. It looks like they tried to model it more closely to the latest 'Bleeding Edge' armor. I like it.

Sweet milk that's a nice helmet!
May 12, 2011, 2:54 AM - Re: Pepper Potts' RESCUE Armor
nice too meet ya. I didnt take what you said in a bad tone. after being outed for my associations with masterLe, I dont take anything to heart. I didnt like how the original rescue was... it looked alien, but its what was wanted. When masterLe started that project for his client in L.A. the new suit was barely shown, and it was his client's say so on what was to be built. I created that helmet out of request of masterLe. Never asked for, or received any compensation for doing the helmet. I took it on as art project to help out my friend and business partner at the time. Took a little over a month to sculpt it. it was a off and on type project but it came out better than i thought. Kinda combined multiple versions to make it.
Had a thought. Its been a while since i've done anything Iron Man. Last thing I did was help a friend create his own helm... but it would be nice to get some of my work out there without the master Le name or reputation behind it. That Is if you want to hire a starving artist to create a wearable helm for ya.
