An awesome video has been made to show how one of the world’s leading balloon artists created a unique Iron Man costume in under 10 hours.

blinkbox challenged Jeff Wright to make the suit using no more than 500 balloons to celebrate the early digital arrival of the epic movie on the service.

The movie and TV streaming service which offers the latest releases without subscription, made the challenge after seeing Jeff’s impressive collection of full body balloon outfits including one of Buzz Lightyear and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

Jeff, who works as a volunteer in an orphanage in Bolivia, jumped at the challenge – and the result is stunning. Made up of hundreds of balloons carefully intertwined, he has artfully recreated the legendary red and yellow suit with meticulous attention to detail.

Jeff comments: “I was trying to decide what costume to do next when I got an email from blinkbox. I’m a huge fan of the Iron Man films and couldn’t resist the challenge. After some careful planning I was ready and asked a friend to film the whole process right here in Bolivia.”
