Iron Man Dress by Spwinkles Iron Man Dress by Spwinkles
Dress design is by :iconkelseymichele:!
When I saw her first four Avenger gown designs I had the strongest desire to make one and finally settled on Iron Man.
Other friends will be joining me and we have almost everyone!
It's been fun seeing their in-progress shots and I am so happy to finally post my (99.9%) completed outfit. Been working on it on and off for months.
I really had no pattern for this so I cut up an old form-fitting dress into the right pieces as a guide and sort of made up the sleeves? @___@;
The (kind of lame) arc reactor is one of those touch-light things. I may make it better later but for now it'll do. xD;;

I never want to see gold piping ever again.
It was the first time making a costume out of stretch PVC! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, though. The red is 4-way stretch and the gold is 2-way stretch. 4-way stretch is my friend or else I wouldn't have been able to fit into that skirt, aha...

The other dresses :iconkelseymichele:

You are certainly an inspiration. I'm still a sewing noob, but this gives me something to work towards. Very nice!

How did you do the heels?

I bought a pair of platforms and painted them. The other leg pieces are all fabric strips I cut out. Though I need to re-do those to make it easier to put on. It's kind of tedious otherwise. XD;

Awesome!

I'm also attempting to make this dress. I like your idea of stretch PVC. Did you make the gold piping?

Thanks!
Yeah for how tight/form fitting the design is is, I needed something stretchy. XD (4-way stretch! Not 2-way.)
No I found the gold piping online but in hindsight, I wish I found better piping.

Looks awesome!

I'm attempting to make this dress as well. Stretch Vinyl seems like a better choice than spandex. Did you make the gold piping?

I had a love-hate relationship with it first but glad I went for a darker red and not a bright one in the end.
