DIY Iron Girl Costume


This was my most ambitious project to date. The entire Iron Girl suit took me approximately eight months to construct. The armor is made of a combination of EVA foam, craft foam and a thermoplastic called Terraflex. The ArcReactor on the chestpiece is comprised of two neopixel rings that are connected to a microcontroller which create cool animations for the lights. The faceplate for the helmet is also connected to a second microcontroller and two servo motors. It opens, closes, and lights up, and is controlled by a magnetic ring that I wear on my left hand. I really wanted to challenge myself with this build, and am incredibly pleased with the results. Long live Stark Industries!
