Choose Team Iron Man with This Mark 43 Suit

There’s one way to proclaim your allegiance for Captain America: Civil War — make a costume from one team or the other. Redditor fifam94 made a Mark 43 Iron Man suit of armor for the premiere of the film (it’s out today, May 6). So, I’m guessing he’s Team Iron Man. He used a variety of materials to craft the look:

It starts off as cardboard which is then fiberglassed and then coated with car body filler which is sanded down and painted.

Though cardboard can be tricky to work with, fifam94 says it’s rigid. It won’t survive a blow from Thor’s hammer or any other kind of hammer actually, but it’s sturdy. He says the addition of the fiberglass and filler make it durable.

And as for the tricky fingers?

Normally I make my gloves out of foam for flexibility, but I was on a time crunch with this one and it’s just made simply out of laminated card stock.
