Iron Man Doesn’t Need Armor, Just Body Paint

I know Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor keeps him safe, but it sure does look uncomfortable. What if he could get it painted on? The process would be slightly longer and it wouldn’t protect him from super villains, but it would be more lightweight.

Okay, maybe the trade-off isn’t ideal for Tony Stark, but it’s fine for a cosplayer! Talented makeup artist Allyson Averell managed to paint the armor on along with accessories like glowing arc reactors and hand repulsors. It might not be suited for fighting, but it’s perfect for striking photos.
