    Feb 2, 2011, 10:23 AM - Ultimate Captain America Costume build #1

    Hey all!

    I have been designing and researching my Ultimate Captain America costume that I will be wearing to the NYC Comic Con this October. I finially started buying and prepairing pieces of my costume and will be posing pics starting this weekend and giving constant updates.



    So far I have the following:
    Cherry red combat boots
    ww2 style leather belth with ammo pouches
    metal 30" ultimate style cap shield
    navy blue baseball pants
    ultimate style cowl (thanks to Fettster)
    top (thanks to Spidey4Fun)
    Cherry red aviator gauntlet gloves (dying to match boots and top)


    I am in the process of weathering the boots, I was lucky to get a great deal on a pair of Dr. Martens 1914 14-eye boots. For the gloves I am still deciding wether or not to add pouches, seeing that sometime he has them and some times he does not. My cowl is coming straight from Fettster, I can't say enough amazing things about his work and how amazing his Cap masks look!!! My top is being created by Spidey4Fun, who's work is incredible!!!! Huge thanks to both Fettster and Spidey4Fun!!!

    Mike (PunisherNC on various boards-not sure if he's a member here) used a type of baseball pants for his costume below:



    He got his top from Brad (spidey4fun).

    There are metal scales (maybe plastic ones too) that can be found out there.
    Or you can cut the scales to the size/shape you prefer out of leather, pleather, or Foamies (which can then be painted with PlastiDip to look like leather).

    Either way is going to be time intensive to attach the scales to the shirt.

    Thanks for the advice Darius! I thought about using a pair of royal blue baseball pants, but werent sure how they would look, but they look great on his outfit, so that looks like the way to go!

    And thanks for the advice on the top, I might hit up spidey4fun and ask him some questions if he has a spare minute or two

    I added pics of my shield and of my ww2 style leather belt and ammo pouches. The belt has 2 different style of pouches, I thought it gave the belt a better look over all. I am thinking of doing a leather stain to the belt and pouches to make them all darker. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

    Pics of my boots and gloves will be up later this week...


    I also ordered navy blue baseball pants after the recommendation from Darius and a couple of others, I will post pics of those as well after I receive them.

    @OmanTortuga

    I'm really looking forward to seeing this build, because if that is you in your Avatar then you will actually resemble the comic book Captain who is built. No offense to other Cosplayers but Captain just doesn't look right when he looks like a skinny rake! It would be like the Hulk looking like PeeWee Herman :P

    Good Luck with your build

    I actually got an awesome pair of Halcyon cherry red leather motorcycle gauntlet gloves that I am distressing and still debating on if i am gonna put pouches on them or not seeing Ultimate Cap is drawn with and with out them. I will have pics up of them and of the boots by the weekend.

    Thanks MykiiAmore!

    Yeah, that is me, lol. People where I train and spar joke and call me Captain America cause I show up all the time in my Cap hoodie. He's been my favorite since I was a little boy!

    thundrkiss:

    Yeah, I am gonna have spidey4fun do the top for me as well, his work is sooo amazing that I couldnt even come close to the quality. He is also going to make a short sleve version of the top for me (just minus the white sleeves) like cap wears in the ultimate books when he is not in his uniform as well.

    Excellent work! I'm a big fan of the Ultimate Cap costume. I even daresay you look more like Cap with your costume rendition than Chris Evans in the upcoming movie's costume.

    I might suggest adding a full collar to complete the look, but even without it, it looks spectacular!

    ...Fettster,
    Yep.
    I didn't mention it because OmanTortuga's got the same one already.




    However there's a couple of other's out there.
    - Mike's sculpted his own version that should be molded and cast soon.
    - cavedweller also made his own version

    The Puerto Rico shirt totally works, the point of the blue area below the star looks good, you may want to go with that for the real shirt.
