    2 years in the making . I have bin looking all over the internet for all my armor. Found them all over the world & mostly united states. Caption says i've bin going for 10 years but it has bin 15 years. I always wanted to dress up as Doctor Doom and i finally decided to just start looking for the pieces & make my costume . I'm 6'7" so the armor was not easy to find and very expensive. A dream come true for me. I hope you enjoed it as much as i did.
