Iron Man for hire

Thomas Bellflower May 28, 2015

I’m just not the hero type. Clearly. With this laundry list of character defects, all the mistakes I’ve made, largely public. The truth is… I am Iron Man.


I have always enjoyed costumes. I have been a cosplay hobbyist since making a Superman costume on my own in 1998. Originally costuming for Halloween and then for local, themed events, I began attending Con’s in costume with The Three Muses at MegaCon in 2012. Since then I have learned a great deal about the art of building, buying, and wearing costumes. My costumes include a wide range of genres: comics, Sci-Fi, fantasy, horror, anime, steampunk, and even cartoons. I have expanded my skills to include crafting costumes for others and even building props and fabricating costume pieces out of Worbla and EVA Foam.


Recently I decided to focus on one costume for my primary and plan to participate in costume events in my local community, as well as regional Cons, as Iron Man. I am currently a member, as a Jedi, of the Star Wars themed costuming organization the Rebel Legion. I hope to expand my costuming to include other charity organizations/events.
