The video game Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions featured an unlockable armored costume that covered Spider-Man in metal from head to toe (mostly). Cosplayer and builder Roberto Arias, a.k.a. Toronto Iron Man, started work on a replica a few months ago. He’s built an Iron Man suit, Winter Soldier’s robotic arm, and several helmets so working with metal isn’t difficult for him.
He has the torso and mask done as of September. He made a duct tape mannequin with the help of his dad so he could fit the armor pieces on. They were all individually made, and the mask/helmet looks like it was printed from a pepakura file. It will open and close in the back with magnets and is lit with an EL panel.
Keep up with progress on this costume and many more on Arias’ Facebook page.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
