    So Ive gone through the pepakura process with resin and bondo many times and have made several suits in the past year. I spent tons of money through trial and error.

    I have found that foam is much easier, funner, cheaper, and the result is very satisfying.

    This is my suit:

    I wore it for halloween last year. Youu can see the chest is still gray because I just re-did it out of foam. The torso and shoulders used to be fiberglass(which is very uncomfortable to wear.)

    Today I made the last part of my costume, the helmet. :)
    For some reason when ever I make the helmet, the eye region seems lop sided. One eye is bigger than the other. I think it is because I mess up the center of the eyes when I attach the lower faceplate to the upper faceplate. Anyways, I'm workin on it still.

    I tried hodge podge spray to seal the foam before painting but it didn't work as well as I hoped. So I'll try a few coats of a glue mixture later.

    I spent $50 on foam for the entire suit.

    Basically all I need to do now is seal the foam really good and repaint the whole thing with chrome!

    Finhead told me that the MK II and MK III are the same just different colors and the rivets; it would be so cool if we can nickle plate it....

    Yeah the mark II is the prototype before he paints it and weaponises it. And yeah the rivets are visible on the mark II. But I'm not going to worry about those.

    Your iron man always looks ticked off. lol! :) I have yet to do a build with foam, currently doing a cardboard one. It will take longer for sure, but it's been pretty fun. I have 2 months until Avengers comes out, I am going to the movie in costume. :D
