I've always wanted a 'classic Cap' costume. And what's better than the Star Spangled Man costume seen in Captain America: The First Avenger?

I wanted to wait until I was in a decent shape before getting one as it's quite a tight, form-fitting costume.


I'll start off with some reference photos first just in case anyone isn't familiar with this suit.

And here are the first WIP photos of the torso.

do you know what kind of fabric they are using exactly? I'm in need of just the "shirt" portion of this outfit!!

We're just going for a sweater/jumper fabric. It's got some weight and thickness to it and also has a stretch. That way it doesn't look like spandex.

If you don't mind me asking, what are they charging for it? I'm in a bit of a rush to get my bucky rescue costume finished, and this is actually the final piece!! Thanks!!

It was £45 for a photo and another £45 to get an auto. So there was no chance. And it was his last time ever doing Europe so unless I go to America......... I'll just have to keep it as it is haha

Some more pics.

We finally got the shield complete. We used blue and white vinyl stickers and then painted the red. The stars are separate vinyl stickers that took a lot of time and patience to put on. I think they came out alright.

Also thankyou to Lunaman for the giving me the sizing of the shields as well as sending me a PDF of the lyrics from the musical in TFA. I didn't get time to print them off though.

Here's a shot of the whole suit from Manchester MCM today. Excuse my weird looking eyes. The eye part was being a pain all day so going to be tweaking that for next time.

If you still have the costume, how was the star made? I’m thinking of doing this costume in the next year or so.
