    this is my costume from Halloween 2011.. (also my first costume design & build)

    I Googled as many “homemade” Captain America costumes I could find.. (before I found the RPF)

    From those images & my impressions of.., I went with a old school/traditional (ish) version. I wanted to avoid spandex but keep a trim look.. (?)
    I designed the costume to be as comfortable and practical as I could..

    (enough of my jibber jabber.. on to the pictures!)

    *since the project is done i will post what i got some shots of..

    Awesome job, it looks great! I love the classic take on your Cap.

    Any chance you have any closer pics of your final design mask? It looks excellent and I'd love to get a closer look at your construction details. I've always wanted to make myself one and your pics are inspiring me to finally get started!

    thanks!

    here are a couple closer shots of the mask..

    (it's two layers of fabric, 1 cotton navy blue t shirt, 1 spandex shirt to help keep the cotton from getting stretched out.. 1 modified full face mask cut down & glued into the fabric to help create and hold face form. the back seam goes about half way up & is velcro.. it can be seen a couple photos up of the back of the costume)
