Steampunk is a popular style to apply to costumes these days. It has been for the last five or so years. We saw an original design this morning, but this costume applies a steampunk look to an existing character. Meet steampunk Iron Man. Designed and built by Jeff Platt, the Victorian-ish take on Tony Stark’s suit of armor is quite well done. Platt used metal, leather, LEDs, tubing, and so much more to craft the elegant-looking armor.
He embellished the armor with add-ons such as gauges, an astrolabe, and a cord reel. You can spot several more quirky gadgets on the suit as you go through Platt’s Facebook album for the project. The impressive part is that he makes the mishmash of items work together; each piece contributes to the look. Nothing seems silly or out of place.
