Ironhead Studio: Movie Costume MastersMay 8th, 2016
Tested went to this year’s Monsterpalooza – a convention about movie monsters, costumes and other practical effects – to talk to Ironhead Studio founder Jose Fernandez. You’ve most likely seen and loved his company’s work, you just didn’t know they were behind it. After being omitted from the screen credits of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – they made Batman’s costume and armored suit, as well as Wonder Woman’s costume – Jose was understandably outraged, so he decided to put up a booth at Monsterpalooza to showcase what his company has been doing.
And what a resume. Aside from BvS, Ironhead Studio has created helmets, costumes or both for dozens of films and celebrities, including Captain America: Civil War, Aliens 3 and Daft Punk. This company is legit. One thing that sticks out from their booth is Jose’s awesome concept bust for Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse that’s based on a cast of the actor’s head.
Ironhead Studio also made a lot of costumes for X-Men: Apocalypse but lost the bid to make the ones for the titular villain. What a shame. What a crying shame.
