Homemade Sexy Female Iron Man Costume Idea

I got the Homemade Sexy Female Iron Man Costume Idea for this costume after I had seen the Iron Man II movie. I decided it would be awesome to dress up as him for Halloween because I don't like going to costume parties and seeing a slew of other girls dressed like me. Therefore, I usually opt to dress as males or male characters, because generally, girls like to dress up as girls! I didn't see any other female (or male for that matter) Iron Mans all weekend.

Putting this costume together was pretty easy! I had bought the red corset a long, long time ago for $2 at Charlotte Russe because it was missing a zipper. I added a zipper on my own pretty easily. I bought the mask on e-bay for pretty cheap along with the gold gloves. I play volleyball and I had the gold volleyball spandex as more of a novelty than anything, or for practice or pick-up ball and thought they would be prefect! I sort of made the chest light too. I bought a simple LED light online that had an adhesive backing. I had a gold necklace that featured a large round medallion and pressed the light onto the surface of it. With the light on, the necklace chain almost totally disappears, giving the illusion that the light is on my chest just like in the movie. I wore the red patent peep-toe pumps on one night and a pair of gold flats on another.

I loved it. Everyone else loved it. I got shout-outs for creativity all night!

This is the Homemade Iron Man Child's Costume I created for my 2 year old son. It was a good thing he was still in diapers at the time because it took forever to get him in and out of the costume. The mask was store bought but the rest of the costume was made from craft foam. I created the costume by using coloring book images of Iron Man I found online. I then enlarged the images till they were the size of my son. I printed the large version of the coloring book pages off and began to trace the image onto craft foam sheets. I would cut the various parts of Iron Man’s armor in layers so that it would build up the depth of the costume and give it a more three dimensional feel. I hot glued all the pieces of armor together. I used a high gloss red spray paint to color the foam and make it look more like glossy metal.

When the paint dried, I hot glued the armor to the black shirt and pants. The light on the chest was a “tap” light I bought at a local hardware store. I cut the foam around the tap light tight so that it would stay in the costume on it’s own but could be popped out if batteries needed to be replaced.

If you’re looking for a legend, look no further than the legendary IRON MAN! He is far more than your average superhero. His powered-up armor and arsenal of high-tech weapons eliminate all who stand in his way.

This Homemade Iron Man Costume took months of hard work and ingenuity to achieve the life like appearance. Starting off as nothing more than sheets of paper, the costume took form. From paper to a sturdy plastic, the costume now had the feel of real armor. Next came the body filler to give it the smooth finish and the clean edges. After hours upon hours of sanding and more body filler, that look was finally achieved and ready for paint. With a spray of red, gold, and silver, the legendary costume was finished.
