It's been a long time since I took on a replica costume project and I've been fighting the urge for a while, but finally buckled and decided to take on a Captain America TFA style costume.
I'm a huge fan of this costume, so am hoping I can do it justice!
I'm going to be using the HelloCosplay jacket & trousers as the base suit and upgrading from there.
I decided early on to go for real vintage WWII gear for as many of the additional details as possible (gloves, boots, pouches, belts, holster etc) so it may not end up being 100% accurate, but I don't want it to look brand new and over all I really want it to look and feel functional.
If you're not familiar with the costume, it's this one:
Here's the parts I've put together so far:
WWII Gloves: - British Dispatch Riders Gauntlets
WWII - Belt & bandolier: - British Officers Sam Browne Belt & Sash
WWII Holster: - U.S stamped 1911 Holster
Hikz fantastic belt buckle: - Search the JY for these
