Student Makes Life-Size Iron Man Suit Using Only Cardboard

 

20-year-old cardboard artist and Taiwanese student Kai-Xiang Xhong recreated Tony Stark’s famous Iron Man suit using only corrugated cardboard. In a video interview with the Stan Winston School of Character Arts, Xhong says the cardboard Iron Man suit took him nearly a year to complete as the full-time student only has time to work on his pieces during his free time.

The suit even lights up in the chest and arms, just like the original. Kai-Xiang Xhong is popular online and well-known for his amazing cardboard creations as well as sculptures and models made from other common household items like plastic drinking straws. You can find much of his work including process shots on his Facebook profile.
