Nowadays it is completely normal to spend over U$10,000 to buy a new car. Is that an investment? Well, it depends how we use the car but usually, it is not an investment at all. The thing is, when we buy a car, the price decreases immediately after we take it out of the concessionary. Then, we spend a lot of money on fuel, service, and maintenance; and in most cases, we don’t get money directly from the use of the car. In other words, no, it’s not an investment. We know this, but that doesn’t stop us from buying it, right?
And what happens when we talk about something that doesn’t seem very useful but we still want it. Like a Rolex watch, a Salvatore Ferragamo tie or an Iron Man armor costume suit? Are these things just a luxury or we can find the way to monetize them?
I think it depends on how creative we are. For example, with Eleven James now we can make some profit from the luxury watches we own. With Airbnb, we can turn the guest’s room in a hotel room and earn some extra bucks. With Uber, we can turn our own car in a chauffeur service. And we can mention many more examples of how we can monetize our belongings thanks to something called the “sharing economy”.
But, I don’t want to bore you with random economic terms; the purpose of this article is to show you how you can also make your dream of owning an Iron Man armor true without feeling that you are wasting your money in some kind of whim.
I can tell you for a fact that the Iron Man Armor costume suit can be one of the best investment you can make in your life. There are people making U$1,000 every single day with a U$3,000 Iron Man suit. How? Let’s talk about that.
Have you seen the Transformer street performers in Las Vegas? They don’t have the best quality
Or the cute bunny girls? They are not that cute, just half naked.
And you have probably seen dancers, singers, painters, actors, musicians, etc. Every city, especially the touristic ones, has street performers and these guys can make a lot of money in one single day.
How many performers with a bad ass Iron Man armor have you seen? I’m pretty sure not many. If you have seen a couple, pretty sure the costume was not that great.
If you want a picture with any of those street performers, they always ask for tips or donations (U$3 to U$10 per picture) and they make a lot of money from that. Imagine walking around the streets with a top quality Iron Man Mark 43 armor costume like this:
Let’s make the math…. if you have an Iron Man Mark 43 armor, then you hire a random guy to wear it for 4 to 6 hours in the most touristic square of your city, and ask him to charge U$5 for every picture; you will need only 200 people to make U$1,000 a day; 200 people divided in 6 hours is only 34 people per hour. Do you think that’s possible? With a suit like this? ABSOLUTELY!
You are making U$1,000 a day; that means you can pay the guy you hired U$100 or U$200 per 6-hour day job. You don’t even have to do the job by yourself.
And if you think this cannot work in your city because maybe you live in boring Oregon or in the Sahara desert… You still have plenty of other options.
For example, people will pay lots of money for having Iron Man advertising their product; all you need is a free account on Fiverr and a smartphone with an HD camera; then you can just create your gig on Fiverr like this one here: “I will promote your brand while skydiving” but with a more appealing title like: “I will make Iron Man promote your business“; then you can charge U$50 or more for every order. If you get creative, you can do much more with this.
Besides those two options; you still have plenty more ways to monetize your suit; you can rent your Iron Man armor costume U$200 per hour for events, parties, conventions, etc.; you can offer services on Craiglist or eBay; you can assist to kid’s birthday parties, I’m pretty sure they are tired of clowns and magicians.
The limit is beyond the sky.
The idea of spending U$4000 in an Iron Man suit could seem outrageous; to be honest, it sounds like a waste of money but we are true believers that our suits are not only high-quality collectibles but also beautiful and amazing investments.
After buying your own Iron Man armor suit, it is perfectly doable to get 100% return on your investment in less than a week and that’s a big deal.
Maybe later you can create your own legion of superheroes walking down the streets of your town and piling up a lot of cash. How cool would that be?
