May is International Iron Man Cosplay Appreciation Month. Which means we get to see suits that actually light up and move, sure, but also things of a slightly quainter nature.

Like this suit. Made by Englishman Mark Pearson, it looks like it fell straight out of a movie, but is actually made of cardboard.

Pearson coated 400 sheets of cardboard in fibreglass, and crafted the details out of household objects like an ashtray. It also lights up in certain areas.

Weirdest part is, it doesn't even fit Pearson; he had to get a friend to wear it to the debut of The Avengers in his stead.
