I started putting together my Cap outfit (inspired by more than a few examples here) and I thought that I would share my progress. This is my first real post on the forum as well as being my first build so if I should post awry let me know and I’ll fix it.
Clothing wise, this is what I’ve got so far:
M43 Para Trousers
US WWII Jump Boots
M1923 Garand Cartridge Belt
M1912 Mounted Pistol Holster
I’ve also found a 40s style leather motorcycle jacket that, while not perfect, is very close in style to the one that Cap wears in the scene in question. It’s not in the Logan’s Closet league by a large margin but it is close and when I’m done with it it’ll be closer still.
My plan is to make the USO outfit in its entirety and wear it under the rest of the costume.
The joy of props and the real work in progress follows in the next posts.
