Never occurred to me -- I was doing her for a contest in a group that was asking for a female version of a male superhero (who had no female counterpart; so, for example, batman was out). So, Iron Maiden. But, it could be taken a little further down the Egyptian look, for certain, and end up with something cool. I may look into that! :D

There's something about this that reminds me of Lady Deathstrike. :confused:

Great design :love:

Thanks!

Funny thing, as soon as I got done with her, someone told me about 'Pepper' Potts' "Rescue" armor. In other words, apparently there WAS a female variant of Iron Man in the Marvel Universe… I just didn't read enough comics to know about her!

Still, it's always nice to put your own spin on a popular character, regardless of whether or not there is already a similar varient out there :happybounce:

Freaking adore this! Been meaning to make a female Iron Man cosplay for a really long time. I've just struggled with making it obviously feminine. Most designs just end up as Iron Man with boobs but this is really unique! Would it be okay if I used this as a design for my costume? Credited of course!!

Please be so kind as to send a pic of the final product, or a link to the post, as I'd love to see what you come up with.

Luineannon Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2011
I noticed that too. I've seen things misspelled in a similar way in documents and even books and wonder how they missed it. Most likely because they used a spell checker instead of reading through it.

Exactly. I used to do pre-press work at a print shop, including proofreading. Can't count the number of times I had to explain to a client, "yes, I know you ran spell check, but there's this thing called 'context'…"

Thanks; and yeah, that was one of the first comments for this drawing series. I am afraid I'm not enough of a comic junky to have known about the Pepper armor. C'est le vie.

Glad you like it, though!

Ahhh, interesting use of the hair-cowl, so many iron-women just have the standard skullcap, it can look weird.

I see where they're going with it; a very rounded, organic armor. But I had the movie Iron Man in mind -- sharp edges, lots of plates and moveable parts; I wanted to combine that with a feminine vibe. Thus the hair, the boots, etc.

Glad you liked it.
