A marvel-ous cardboard creation transforms a North Carolina teen from super fan to superhero.
That’s 15-year-old Jashon Lambert, behind the mask of his intricate Iron Man costume.
Hand-made by Lambert, with cardboard and a hot glue gun, at his home outside Charlotte.
The high schooler knew his family couldn’t afford the materials to create a traditional cosplay costume like fabric and plastic.
So, like Tony Stark himself,Lambert used his intellect and imagination – and 700 hours – to fashion his own a costume.
Debuting it at a local festival.
The folks at that Rent-A-Center Lambert mentioned pitched in, providing large cardboard boxes for Lambert to use after his mom asked them for help.
Lambert hopes to become an engineer.
