I think this is one of the hardest costumes I have ever made. It’s a little complicated and I really tried to figure out how to make the Beasty vest using a polo shirt since I’m not really an expert seamstress. (I taught myself how to sew, so I can make cute little things. πŸ˜€ )

When my little pumpkin turned 4 months old, I DIY-ed an Iron Man photoshoot for him. The cake I ordered came around 4 in the afternoon, so Niko was really wide awake. I managed to take a few shots of him looking at me.

Things needed:

  • Yellow, red, white, black and blue colored papers for mask and breastplate
  • Black marker to draw lines on the breastplate

  • Photoshop for background effect
  • Iron Man brush set
  • Iron Man cake, 230 SRD (From Say It With Cupcakes – Suriname)
