Well gave me the motivation needed, though mine won't be fully vacuum formed, I will make sure that it comes out a decent work.

Anything is possible and really human life is very fragile, and the suit will out live the man it may take a few life times for the suit to rust and decay.

it's realy look's great and awsome
but i have a little question
what kind of material build the whole stuff? :O?
what is this fiber material?

DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2011
Thanks, I use high impact plastics general HIP styrene or ABS, and it's in a sheet form and must be heated and vaccuum formed in a machine and parts are welded together and finsh work on top, fiber glass is a whole different material and different method in crafting.

I think the easier method people try is Pepakura using a 3D model and a program that makes patterns off the model ad you print out the 2D patterns on paper fold and glue them together then use resin to hard coat the paper and make shells sure there's enough tutorials on that style, I've never tried it myself but last year it was the big way of fan made prop and costume building.

what about the mark V iron man sui form Iron Man 2
Reply
:icondarkasylumxxx:
DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2011
the suit case armor, I'd think that's one of those more expensive builds just by the layers and serious details it can be done but I don't think it would be cost effective compared to the others.

The MKV can be done I'm just saying it would be expensive doing it accurate I'd charge like 4-5 grand for something like that which I guess is a bit cheaper the those ugly TMP MK3 suits on ebay for 5-7 grand but I think the other suits would be more cost effective buils in compare.

The MK 4 is my favorite of the full battle suits I don't mind the 6 but the off colors didn't look as cool.

When I do commission work it's half up front but for the MK 4 or 6 in the Raw version unpainted no lights would be about $2300 and $3,000 fully painted with the Lights and so on same price I charged for the MK3 but those are far easier then the MK5 do to the uniform layer and joints but the MK5 has sliding and functional parts it's alot of work plus the helmet folds and opens completly different and would take some engineering to get the function correctly.

Do you sell the suits by chance? These are by far the best I've seen and your methods seem to be fool proof :D If you do sell them (as-is size) I'd like to see about buying one :D

Well it started out as commission work I guess but I made a 2 raw kits and the one finished suit, but to be honest it's not very cheap to do, and the suit is pretty much 1/1 scale but can be tweeked a bit but fit's the range 5'8-6'1 the best.

I'm 5'5 but I'm sure I could manage the few inches for it or make my own adjustment. Aside from that though whats the price range for it? Do you see any of the raw kits either?

:icondarkasylumxxx:
DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2011
Well to be realistic it cost about 2 grand to build a iron suit that's about how much it cost in materials so like I said it's not one of the cheaper costumes.

Worth investing if you can make your money back I imagine but that's one of the reasons I haven't made a bunch as it's not cost effective, but I seen other people selling suits for 4-7 grand on ebay I guess that makes a little more profit.

Oh damn. You weren't kidding. It seems well worth it though I guess. I didn't know they were so expensive though.

DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2011
Well, the materials and machines used to build such costumes are far from cheap, and the oil prices going up has not helped just makes even more expensive, I've never even built myself a suit just because it's so expensive to make.


there's cheaper materials if you want to build it yourself, I just prefer the higher end plastics as they will last much longer and take a huge amount of stress.

fiber glass is cheap hazardous crap, itchy, stinky, doesn't flex just cracks and chips up, and just too damn heavy.

High impact plastics are smoother, super light weight, much stronger and flexible easier to customize and just all around better materials, hell it's what they make motorcycle helmets and paintball armor out of can't really go wrong there.

DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2010
No real brand it all comes from CA plastics just need to check with your closes polymor distributer there's only 2 places that make the plastics in the USA but it all goes to California and all Polymor companies just buy from them.

DarkAsylumxxx Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2010
well I only know of the 2 closest to me California plastics is the main supplier here but you can just look up polymor plastic suppliers,

but it's cheaper if you can pick the materials up rather then pay for expensive shipping so google in your area if you can.
