Feast your eyes upon this amazing Iron Man Suitcase Armor costume, made by scratch by Ryan (ry84), a 26-year-old student at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario.
Ryan was kind enough to give me a heads up about this costume, which is very likely the first Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Armour the Internet has seen. Last week he won “Best in Show” at Toronto’s Comic Con.
This is just insane! I love how it lights up and has motion-activated sound, too. Just incredible. Big thanks to Ryan for sending this in. Great job!
Over the past 10 months I’ve designed and built the world’s first Iron Man Mark V Briefcase Armour from the Iron Man 2 movie. I’ve scoured the internet for other people who have done it already, and found nothing. The thing that makes my suit special is that it actually transforms from a briefcase into the full suit of armour, with functional lights and repulsors (the hand blaster) sounds. Everything on this costume has been built from scratch, using only a few reference images from the movie.
