Iron Man/Tony Stark Cosplay Refs and Help Part 1

These are going to be fairly simple till we get up to each suit and through the movies. Theres plenty of info on the suits, reactors etc but not much on anything else. So it’s up to you.

IRONMAN

Cave: The clothes worn here are presumably borrowed. There are a few different outfits. Theres a white button shirt worn beneath a faded brown coat with a woolen? inside and dark patches. He wears what looks to be his pinstriped suit pants with them. And carries the box that stops the shrapnel from entering his heart. Anything that looks like a car battery would do. But i don’t reccomend actually using one. 

Throughout this part of the movie he wears a khaki tank top with the reactor showing, a jumper/cardigan thing in the same colour with the reactor showing, wires showing. 

And his suit with bandages in place of his shirt.

Business/Formal Suits: He seems to favour pinstripes either in black/grey or blue. Plain or lightly striped shirts. I think the blue tie has flowers. I’m not sure what sort of sunglasses he is wearing.

The formal suit could be anything. So long as it’s black with a matching bowtie.

All apparently by David August. 

Glasses were Ray Ban 3320 and Robert Marc Style 719 Brown with Aqua.

Workshop: Anything light grey or white, with the reactor showing and parts of the suit attached to the arm or hand.

Black G Star tank top and Paul Smith Ribbed V-Neck Jumper, not sure which this is for but it was mentioned. 

Mark 3 Suit: I chose 3 because its the most recognisable of the movie. 1 is too clunky, 2 is plain. 3 is the best. I could probably find tutorials and patterns for the first two. Pepakura is the best pattern for the suits. As far as I know. 

Tutorials: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Patterns:  1, 2, 3, 4.

Arc Reactors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

IRONMAN 2

Suit: He probably wears others but I quite like the look of this one. Grey pinstripe with pale blue shirt and patterned tie. Not sure of the style. He wears a hankerchief in his pocket the same colour. A watch with a cream band on his right hand. 

Again by David August.

Watches by Jaeger-LeCoultre.

Sunglasses by  Initium “All in” Square Aviators and Von Zipper “Fulton” Red & Black Checkered with Grey lenses. 

Racing Suit: There aren’t really any tutorials for this. Most people have gotten theirs made. Basically its a blue and black racing suit, the top and bottom are separate and zips at the front. I suppose if you were to get a black one you could find a way to add the blue. Or get it custom made.

Info: 1, 2.

Casual: The green shirt is a prada forest green polo shirt. Any will do for this look. Or wear a plain black singlet top. And top it off with a bronze and black patterned dressing gown. I can’t find the maker of this, possibly its old or a one off or its not known. 

Arc Reactors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Mark 5: This is the one that comes out of the suitcase. 

Patterns: 1.

Tutorials/Help: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Case: Its very expensive. I can’t find any patterns but Im sure so long as you get a suitcase or some kind and modify it it might work. 

1, 2, 3.

Mark 6: Fairly simple to Mark 3 and 4 but the reactor is different.

Patterns: 1, 2, 3, 4.

Tutorials/Help: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Wig and makeup refs will be in Part 2 or if theres a Part 3 in that one.

With Pepakura files you may have to open them on a windows computer.

Working on the Tony Stark Iron Man ref now, will try and encompass all three movies and avengers, suits, arc reactors, etc.

I think the Eowyn was by another member of the blog so I’ll wait. 

bendiddly whistled:

I am like crying and flailing because your blog is the bestttttt

Aw thanks! 

Anonymous whistled:

could you please do a ref for fem!Tony Stark? Thank you!

I’m not sure how I’d do that… I can probably look up some fanart…hmm.. Leave this with me and I’ll think on how it can be done. Because to me I don’t see why the same things cant be worn. 

Ill see what I can do! I mean to do an actual tony stark ref soon too.

Please pick one for me to do next!

Striked Dean off! I think since Eowyn is almost done Ill finish hers tonight.

Dean Winchester Cosplay Refs and Help!

Because so much has already been reffed by countless others and we’d be here all day if I reffed every one of his outfits I’ve chosen a small few of his “costumes” plus a few of the various jackets. I will link you to the rest.

JACKETS: Dean has so many! One person believes he wears almost 22 different coats or jackets throughout the series! It was really hard to choose just a few. He often wears blue or green military or utility jackets and brown leather ones. Most famous perhaps the one that used to belong to his father and was stolen from the set of the show. 

Searches for Blue Jacket: 1, 2.

Searches for Green Jacket: 12, 3, 4

Searches for Brown Leather Jacket: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

For the first two GAP has been reccomended for jackets. For the leather, Wilsons. But really anything similiar will be fine. Try local stores, charity stores, family closets first. Before forking out extra money. Ebay is a good try, most of the searchs are for that. Some websites make film/tv accurate jackets. But try clothing stores first!

Shirts: I will direct you here. He has far two many. But for a general cosplay, a plain or light patterned shirt/ sometimes flannel over a dark coloured tshirt.

Jeans: I think I read somewhere they were diesal? Any blue jeans will be fine. 

Boots: Caterpillar Akons in black. Workmens/Tradies boots. Any boots in black will be fine. 

LARP DEAN: I’m afraid I can only give you so much help here. Larping isn’t something I’m familiar with though it sounds fun. So I don’t know the correct terminology. However we did a previous ref for Larp Charlie so I’ll refer to that. 

Seamless trim technique

Craft foam/vinyl armor
Leather armor
Painting pleather shoes
Making leather boots
Quick and easy shoe cover tutorial
Practical worksheet for tunic construction

Making bracers: 1, 2.

Shields: 1, 2, 3.

Chainmail: 1, 2.

Sword: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Or you could make a sword.

You can use face paint for the…face and fake ears for the…ears. Any should be fine, his are brown tied together with what looks like light brown or orange leather cord.

GYM DEAN: Sexy shorts. For this you need red shorts obviously with an equally red belt, a white polo shirt with Truman Bombers embroidered on it. He wears black and white sneakers with white knee socks with a triple red trim. 

Accessories include a red sweat band on his head and a whistle. Sometimes a basketball or other ball of some kind and aviator glasses.

Socks: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

Sweatband: 1, 2, 3, 4.

FRONTIERLAND DEAN:  Dean wears his blue jeans white a black shirt which has a white trim and white buttons. Over this he wears a brown leather vest. Idk where to find such vest, try ebay and charity stores. On his head is of course a stereotypical cowboy hat. He ends up wearing two different sorts.

At one point he changes to a coat with a different shirt, with a manderin collar. A different hat is worn with this. As well as a long dark brown leather coat.

…And then theres the poncho.

Shirt: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Described as a seventies ranch/cowboy shirt. Not cheap. Might be cheaper to trim a shirt yourself?

Poncho: 1, 2, 3.

Perhaps get a sherrifs badge too?

FBI DEAN: Should be fairly easy. Black/dark blue suit, white shirt and a striped tie. Dean seems to favour red. You’ll have to buy the wallet for the badge and id card.

Badge: 1, 2, 3.

The ID card you see in the ref is of my own design. If you want it send me a message. Otherwise you can buy them on sites like etsy. I plan to sell some once I’ve printed them or laminated them. The boys use a variety of aliases for you to choose from. 

Some here.

DEAN SMITH: I only included him because i just love this shirt and look it’s pretty interesting. Theres a variety of places to get them and they aren’t cheap. Perhaps if you wish to create this look you take two existing shirts and put them together?

Shirt: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Its apparently called a french cuff. Try some local clothing stores first. You might find cheaper versions.

He wears a red tie and red/navy suspenders/braces. 

Braces: 1, 2, 3, 4.

WIGS: Basically a short brown wig. FiveWits has one but its so blond I don’t think it would be suitable. It’s castiel wig is the only other wig of that style in another colour. 

Some that have been reccomended are: 1, 2, 3, 4

Try various wig stores too. It just needs to be a short generic brown wig that can be easily styled.

ACCESSORIES: 

Samulet: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.

Tattoos: 1, 2.

And idk a gun or seven. There are Colt replicas but they are extremely expensive.

If you have any questions let me know. Hope this is ok. 

alljustletters replied to your post: “heya! is there a possibility you’ll be making game of thrones references? (specifically joffrey, brienne, danny)”:

those two would be amazing!

Ill add them to the list but Joffrey will probably be first because well….(*spoilers*) obvious reasons. Plus I’ve seen a cosplay of him recently and it would be interesting to try and make a ref for him. 

Currently working on the Dean Cosplay ref thanks to the supernatural wiki. I had to narrow down his jackets to only three but they are in quite a few episodes so thats the general Dean cotume done. Then I’ll finish the wild west one and pick maybe one or two more. 

FBI probably because I have the psds of the fbi cards somewhere and one other.

Please pick one for me to do next!

Bad Wolf/The Moment Cosplay Refs and Help!

Hey! Sorry this has taken so long, I had it all finished and then tumblr crashed and I lost everything. 

So…here I go again.

The Outfit: The Moment wears a All Saints Rona Sleeveless Biker Jacket, basically a beige? vest with a zipper down the side and two pockets. I haven’t been able to find any still available for sale but keep trying ebay. 

This one is similiar but I don’t think its the same fabric. Basically just a beige vest with a zipper and a collar with lapels. 

She wears the vest over a All Saints Myrine dress in white which is very tattered and distressed. Any white lace dress should do the trick I think. Its cut off jaggedly above around the hips.

Beneath that she wears a All Saints Jodelle dress, only the bottom is visible, its a slightly darker colour than the distressed lace dress. It’s fairly badly damaged itself. Any silky smooth dress in bone or light grey should be fine.

Then there are some plain black tights/leggings filled with many holes. These should be very easy to find. But be careful, you might tear to big a hole and oops.. suddenly you need a new pair of tights.

Finally there are the Vivienne Westwood Pirate Boots in grey,. I couldn’t find any similiar. But I’ve taken the ref from the Merlin ref and its basically the same principle and design just slightly higher on the leg. 

A few I found if you are interested: 12.

Oh did you know you can make them? These are boho ones but you could just use the same kinds of belt instead of fancy ones.

Here: 1.

Let me know if the links aren’t working.

An Elgar Crowl Neck Sweater  is used for arm warmers. Just the arms mind you. They are attached, slightly, to the lace dress, The elbows are open.

Any knitted sweater will be fine. Idk what to do with a sweater without arms but maybe you can start a new fashion?

ACCESSORIES: Various. 

• Black nail polish.

• Many beaded and belted bracelets.

• A unIDed ring in gold.

• A rectangler medallion attached to black cord in her hair.

• Another attached to her hair is a small medallion of St Christopher.

• Beads in her hair. 

WIG: Any rose wig will be fine but it should be the kind you can style in waves. Ash blond is an ideal colour and you can colour in the roots with a black or brown sharpie. Arda wigs reccomends a Ferrari in ash blonde. 

I hope this helps. If you have any more questions feel free to ask!
