Epic Hulkbuster Costume Spotted In London

An amazing Hulkbuster costume that first wowed crowds at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year has been sighted on the streets of London.

The super-realistic costume that stands at over 9ft tall and is over 6ft wide was inspired by the armour worn by Iron Man in this summer’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’. 

It looks like it drew quite a few curious looks when its creator Thomas DePetrillo of Extreme Costumes took it for a wander along South Bank and around North Greenwich.

The incredible hand-made costume that took the Marvel super-fan over 16,000 hours to build was in town to help launch the Sky Movies Christmas experience at the Sky Studios in the O2.

“Since it is the first time the suit has been to the city, I thought it would be great to get to know London and have been visiting some of the capital’s most famous spots,” said Thomas.

If you look closely, you can even see Thomas hidden beneath his amazing handmade costume. I wonder if he’ll let us borrow it for next Halloween?

The Sky Studios event offering augmented and virtual reality experiences based on ‘Cinderella’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is completely free and is open until 10 February.
