As I’m sure is apparent by now, the Marvel Comics character Iron Fist is one of my favorite superhero characters (along with DC Comics’ Superman and Hawkman), and with Halloween coming up in October, I wanted to build a good Iron Fist costume. I have two options, as shown above, with the suit on the left being infinitely easier to build, as it involves easy to find cargo pants and gun holsters that can easily be found– even the ammo pouches could be found at the local military surplus store. The problem I’m finding is in creating the mask and finding a custom t-shirt shop to make the top. I need a fitted, preferably thermal, green top on which I can put on that Iron Fist logo. Is there somewhere online or in NYC that could make an iron on transfer which could be applied to a regular fitted green shirt? If so, any specific ideas where I could buy the kind of shirt I need?
However, if someone knows how I could get the costume on the right side made in New York, let me know– it’d certainly be an interesting and cool outfit, even if it’s surely a lot more costly.
The mask is the other issue. In these images, the mask and belt seem to be made from similar material and so even if I did get the mask made, I’d need similar materials to create a consistent aesthetic.
So I guess the bottom line is that I’m lost and need help in becoming a superhero. Anyone want to help me fight for truth, justice and flaming iron fists?
