    Hey guys, these here are some of the pictures of my project for a super accurate AoU Cap suit.

    This was my start for the helmet.

    11011283_914946905205884_2016439464909923923_n.jpg 10989118_914946928539215_6490985986858024486_n.jpg 1510941_914946955205879_2932980597815690143_n.jpg 11002512_914946991872542_546185479095399429_n.jpg

    Used our tfa cast, but since it was not accurate enough shape ways I went on to modify it with some filler.

    11081254_932276176806290_5870469854222928387_n.jpg 1491752_929977887036119_8049961656327849942_n.jpg 11058500_929977753702799_3208637976652493008_n.jpg

    I then thought about doing an accurate pattern/texture that I have seen in any helmet on the internet.
    That's the first test:

    10386304_914477198586188_6344868574771277418_n.jpg

    i then did my templates on the computer and proceeded to laser etch the texture on the petg to get this result:

    984304_936886596345248_6362581933502155442_n.jpg 11084252_936886723011902_5653505948257168567_n.jpg 11133832_939408209426420_6717031691683887402_n.jpg 10628567_939408559426385_6423749456974413411_n.jpg 11126736_939408496093058_7494092039735238588_n.jpg 10403706_940993482601226_9180503367736185465_n.jpg 11120506_944434202257154_4932633376933472980_n.jpg 10349159_936886649678576_2156064412076759099_n.jpg

    This took many hours and a lot of material wasting.
    I had to redo the side panels at least 8 times for many reasons. One being that petg gets very fragile when laser etched:

    11053654_933344996699408_6178336309777101396_n.jpg

    Anyway, after wasting a lot of time trying to get everything has simmetric as possilble i got to a a point where I was pretty happy with the outcome:

    1780906_963694790331095_8229236970303010157_n.jpg

    I had to use filler to fill the gaps I would leave between parts of petg:

    11149419_940993919267849_6115894609432433136_n.jpg

    This was to make sure the petg wouldn't inflate and create annoying bubbles.

    The suit was quite a challenge too, but there's not much to say about. Pictures will actually tell more than words:
    Feel free to ask questions if you want ;)

    Nice job! This is my favourite variant of the Captain America suit by far, and you've certainly managed to do it justice up to now.

    You're welcome. The attention to detail here is fantastic, especially the textured detail on the sides of the helmet.

    Very nice.
    Question: What type of fabric are you using for the costume? I am looking at making a similar styled costume.

    No worries. I appreciate your help. I recently heard of someone who was using curtains to make their costume. I might go that direction.
