While many people are well versed in the art of balloon twisting, very few have developed their skills quite like Jeff Wright. Instead of making small animals and hats, the talented artist crafts life-size wearable superhero costumes, using just the inflated rubber! Over the years, the 28-year-old Cleveland,Ohio, native who now lives in Bolivia, South America, has balloon twisted the attire worn by Buzz Lightyear, Super Mario and even, Michelangelo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

However, it is his latest creation that is garnering a lot of attention. In September 2013, to celebrate the DVD release of Iron Man 3, United Kingdom- based on demand video service, Blinkbox, challenged the artist to create a replica of the superhero's suit using less than 500 balloons.

It took Jeff ten hours and 364 balloons, but the result as you can see is something even the superhero would be proud to add to his collection. And while it may not be the most reliable costume for Iron Man, it would sure make for a cool Halloween costume, wouldn't it?
