Make Your Own IRON MAN Suit with a DIY Course

Jun 27 2017 -- 3:00 PM

Iron Man's suit of armor doesn't exactly look like an easy build. We've seen how much Tony Stark's toiled over making the perfect suit in the comics and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's a commitment, one that cosplayers regularly sign up for. Given that the Iron Man armor is a complex build, it would be nice to have someone walk you through the steps with complete instructions. That's what Christian Trejo is doing with TheIronSuit.com.

Trejo made an Iron Man suit of his own for Halloween one year and realized he'd like to help others do the same. To that end, he's put together an online course to guide ambitious makers through the process. It includes a material list (with easily accessible items), a guide, 3D design files and the software necessary to view them, video tutorials, and more.

An example of what the finished armor could look like (there are options for customization as you build):

I mean, it would make for a great "what I did over summer break" essay. I think it would be neat if this was a school project, actually. I bet an enterprising student could sell a teacher on this idea.

And if you're not about being a mechanic, Trejo has options for purchasing a complete set of armor. Visit TheIronSuit.com to get all the details

Imagine you could build any version of Iron Man armor. Which would you choose and why? Propel yourself to the comments and let us know.
