Check Out A Life-Size IRON MAN Suit... Made Of Cardboard!

Hit the Jump to take a look at this extremely cool, full size Iron Man suit made entirely out of cardboard. The amazing part is, it's entirely wearable! Talented 20-year old cardboard master Kai-Xiang Xhong from Taiwan designed the suit, as well as many other cool pieces of art.

It's rare that we get to see such talent here on CBM, but a certain young man from Taiwan by the name of Kai-Xiang Xhong has created a masterpiece of Iron Man's armor, entirely out of cardboard. So check out the pictures, and watch the video embedded below to see some of his other great works!

Here is what Kai-Xiang said about the production of the suit: "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."

I remember I saw this one dude who made, like.. a mini-bust of Iron Man out of empty beer cans. I looked at it, and thought "well, why the f*ck not? It's not like I can sleep". Yeah..

Didn't work out for me. Shit's harder than it looks.

This is really awesome! I had to create 3-d models out of cardboard and chip board in architecture school and I didn't have enough time to do something that intricate but props to him.

The ironman suit is very accurate and the fact that u can wear it makes it even more Impressive. His work is very artistic, especially the dragon and dinosaurs.

And for those who says this is a waste of time, creating cardboard sculptures is this guy's way of creating art and cardboard is his medium because he said he doesn't have the money for other mediums. Cardboard is usually free.

Some would say A waste of time is coming to this site 100 times a day to read about comic book movies, which some of us do myself included.

To each their own....

And you guys want to know why I want to marry an asian woman lol ..damn impressive, still cant beat a Nigerian I know he created a real looking spider suit with items from the bush, even the color was from plants.
EpitomeofAwesome - 3/31/2014, 10:49 AM
Damn, this kid’s amazing
Comedian03 - 3/31/2014, 10:53 AM
This isn't as impressive as you guys are making it out to be lol
It's talented, I'll say that, but why not show off the hundreds of other costumes that people have made out of fiberglass, resin, plastics, metal, and fully painted to be 100% screen accurate? There's literally hundreds of homemade Iron Man suits more deserving of the credit. The RPF is full of them, it's one of the most popular builds people do.
