Renaissance Iron (wo) Man?

The more I looked at my Gamurra that I showed off yesterday, the more I started to think “it really has the colour scheme of the Iron Man costume (armor).

Then I found the Shear Madness Quarterly challenge #6 – “Twisted Historicals“… and I couldn’t stop thinking about a Renaissance take on the Iron Man costume – but of course for me instead of a masculine version.

“Twisted Historicals” – Costumes made using a historical genre as a base.  A Betty Boop Elizabethan, Steampunk Victorian, etc.  Must have a historical shape to it.  (January 2015 – April 2015)”

With an April 1st deadline, I’d still have plenty of time to finish this costume as a proper attempt at a 1480’s Florence gown.. and enough time to then tweak it and twist it into the Iron (wo) Man costume too… It’s something to ponder for sure!

I think a Pinterest board is coming! If you have any interesting takes on the Iron Man costume, please drop me a link in the comments below!
