Iron Man: Ironette….Why Not?

Posted on May 17, 2010 by in Cosplay, The Screen | 18 comments

So recently I went to the theaters to see Iron Man 2 for the third time. There of course were many things I noticed this time compared to the first…such as.. In the scene with Hammer (Sam Rockwell) and Vanko (Mickey Rourke) discussing the deal to get rid of Iron Man… take a close look at the inside of Hammers hands. If you look closely you will see his fake tan lines on his finger creases. Now I don’t know about you but in my opinion it fits Justin Hammers personality perfectly. Now I just can’t help but wonder if they actually did that on purpose.

Also noticed some scenes weren’t in the movie…such as the scene where Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) kisses Iron Mans (Robert Downey Jr.) mask.  Or even the scene where Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) herself gets to fire off one of Iron Mans gloves. I’ll be looking for these in the deleted scenes on the DVD for sure.

Now each time I saw this movie…the only thing going through my head was…I want to be an Ironette…so.. What did I do? I went ahead and recreated the costume.

With some lycra and incredible power of LED light rings….I present to you the finished project.

Ta Da!!!

  4. That's awesome!! Will you be at San Diego Comic Con? My friends and I are trying to get a whole group of the dancing Ironettes together and I'd love to have you. 😀

  5. Followed a tweeted link from John Favreau himself to get here.

    You did a great job on the costume and it looks awesome on you!

    I was also missing the preview scenes that weren't in the movie. Thank goodness for DVD (who am I kidding? Blu-ray!) deleted scenes!

  6. Ah, the night Jon Favreau visted Comic Booked. First Road Warrior comes on, and now this. Twitter, I heart you.

  7. I might possibly be at San Diego comic con. If I am correct my friend has a ticket for me. :3

  8. I love the look!

  9. Great job recreating the costume!

    The fake-tan stuff had to be deliberate – when I watched the film the second time through, you can see where his *palms* are orange (from disregarding the warnings about how to apply properly, no doubt). Lovely bit of visual characterization, that.

  10. Awesome costume! Bring it and the lady in it to the 32nd Annual Superman Celebration June 10-13th here in Metropolis, Illinois….HOME OF SUPERMAN!

    We'd love to have you… and you're hot lady friend.

  12. Elle I personally created that outfit. Bought the fabric and LEDs and sewed it together 🙂

  13. OMG girl thats so sweet! How on earth did you make the outfit and light?

  14. I'm recreating the costume as well and was wondering what you used for the LEDs?

  15. Seriously!!! How did u make this??? I wanna create it for my halloween costume!!!

  16. AWESOME! how'd you manage the lights? im making my own too!

  17. how did you make this!! and was it expensive? I'm trying to make one for halloween but don't know how! yours is fantastic 🙂
