I thought that I was going to make myself an Iron Man suit but my ten year old son convinced me that making him a War Machine suit was somehow in my “best interest”. He was very persuasive so I took out the half inch foam playroom floor mats and an xacto knife and one month later he had his suit and now I am “permitted” to make the costume of my dreams for me.

This build started by looking over the pics from Iron Man 2 then studying the Pepakura files for the biceps and helmet. This costume was a pile of floor mats and a huge bag of hot glue stick just one month ago. I hope everyone enjoys this Homemade Child’s War Machine Costume!
