A doting Chinese father has painstakingly built a minimalist Iron Man suit for his superhero-adoring son.

Chu Huang, who lives in Zhejiang Province in China, spent a month making the suit by hand. Chu Huang is a busy doctor who works until 7:30pm every day and rarely gets time off work to spend with his son. But knowing that his son was obsessed with superheroes decked out in badass armor, Huang decided to get to work and make an Iron Man suit for his boy.

Huang had no prior experience making costumes, and spent over a month on websites and forums seeking information and instructions. He then began spending his free time the evenings crafting the suit out of EVA plastic sheets.

Rather than copying Iron Man's signature red and a gold suit, Huang decided to make a minimalist Iron Man suit with a consistent gold shade. The suit is made to fit an adult, so Huang's little boy will surely be eager to grow up as fast as he can in order to be able to wear the suit.
