To celebrate the early digital release of Iron Man 3 on blinkbox, the company challenged Jeff Wright to make an Iron Man suit using no more than 500 balloons!

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.”
