If you can’t be a superhero, you can dress like one. University student Zu Bingqun has one of the best dress-up slections I’ve ever seen. He’s been crafting superhero costumes since 2012 and has made the following Avengers costumes so far: Captain America, Thor, and two Iron Man suits. While not part of the Marvel team, Bingqun has also made a Batman suit. That’s a pretty impressive stack of costume for two – three years of work.
Each costume starts the same: he downloads blueprints and purchases all the necessary material. Bingqun strives to make exact replicas of the costumes he sees in the Marvel films and makes sure they function. Masks open and close, and for characters like Iron Man, he adds light-up components.
It would be enough to make these costumes for fun, but Bingqun hopes to have them all done by May so he and his friends can wear the costumes for the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I wonder if I could get on his friend list by then.
