Guy Builds Full Set Of Iron Man Armor Out Of Cardboard

April 4, 2014


How much for the slippers?

This is the full set of wearable Iron Man armor 20-year old Kai-Xiang Xhong built out of cardboard. So, technically, it's Cardboard Man armor. Although -- only Iron Man's original armor was actually made out of iron. Now it's like, nano-particles or something. I don't know, I only keep up with Aquaman.

I used pepakura technique. But I did not add any special color on the surface. Keeping the cardboard color and texture was deliberate. That's my style.

Heck yeah, what CAN'T cardboard do? SPOILER: Make a decent bread substitute. No matter how many times I try, my grilled cheese sandwiches always wind up starting fires. And then what? "You put them out?" But I love watching them burn so much! "GW -- are you an arsonist?" Define arsonist. "Someone who illegally burns property." Oh yes, bigtime.

Keep going for a video. Of what, I'm not sure.

Thanks to Benjamin QD, who once made a love doll out of cardboard with disastrous consequences.

    Wait, Geekologie writer took a cheap jab at Aquaman?, what a knee slapper! he must way cooler than we thought, we're not worthy of such non-burned out jokes, it's like 80's happening all over again!

    If it rains Iron Man has to stay inside so he doesn't turn into Pulp Man.

    Lots of people throughout the world have been making Iron Man costumes out of cardboard for the past few years using a program called Pepakura. Most builders go much further than this guy. Once the cardboard piece is made, they coat it in fiberglass and paint it. By the time they're finished, they've got a movie quality suit of armor. There are many tutorials on YouTube for it.

    I think it looks pretty good. Considering the complexity the painting would take far less work than the building.

    You do not talk about painting ! Stick with cardboards !
