Movie Sculptor Makes His Own Iron Man Costumes

by OddMods Staff on November 2, 2010

Norway native John Bekkensten is a well-known sculptor who has had pieces featured in Gladiator, Braveheart, Robin Hood, and countless other movies. But when he wasn’t working on professional projects, Bekkensten was hard at work on his Iron Man outfit.

Bekkensten has also been working on a War Machine costume. Both constumes were made out of fiberglass and plastic. John and his friend strolled around London in the suites, stunning (and maybe scaring) every person they walked by.

    CORRECTION TO THE ARTICLE.
    Hello My name is John-C.K. Bekkensten from Bekkhans Studio.

    I must point out that the facts in this article is not correct and i think it is important to get this right. I have personally not the film credits as refferd to this article those credits should go to my good friend and talented partner Bruce Hansing. Bruce and I have worked on this and countless other projects together.

    I would love if you could put me in contact with your source of this information so wrongfull information is not spread.

    The Ironman was is personal project because we are hardcore fans and test our skills. The entire costume is sculpted in clay from vissual ref. by hand. Parts cast in fiberglass and Vac.formed plastic. We are very satisfied with the final outcome. We managed to enginere it to be able to walk, run, walk stairs, jump and partially sit down. Those photos are not CGI or photoshopped its real costumes. :D

    what do you mean by Vac.formed plastic?

  • $6241910

    Its where you heat up a sheet of plastic to the point its pliable, then place it over a sealed mold and a vacuum sucks the air out until the pliable plastic forms around the mold underneath and when hardens keeps the shape of the item it was formed around.

  • buckweed

  • Jealous much? And he is doing something he's displaying his talent in hopes of getting pick up by a studio. What have you done lately to follow your dream?

  • Maven

    Tell us Ivxero, what are YOU doing with YOUR life, other than being a douchebag on the Internet?

  • Random Stranger

    What if they're aspiring prop/costume designers in real life? If that's the case, this is a great way to get the attention of people who hire people like them. Think outside the box before responding with anger.

  • readthearticle
