Default Fan made costumes

Is anyone dressing up as their favorite Avenger when they go see the movie? A buddy of mine built an Iron Man costume just to wear for the midnight show... blue prints and all... It's not completely finished but it looks pretty good.

Just wondering if anyone else planned on doing so....

not sure if this is already a topic or needs to be moved... if so, my bad

Yep, though Liz and I have not decided if we'll be wearing our Cap and American Dream suit or our WWII military suits...

I'm in the center, Liz is on the left.

It's been a very long process, and it costs about that much to make. The first one I did all myself, which you can see in the last picture I posted. Since then, I've made better versions, subbing some processes out to machine shops for more precise machining than I can do at home. I've also improved the paint and the strapping system as well.
