Captain Marvel Build - NEMA


Sr Member
I am enjoying following this build. Great effort and attention to detail. Looking forward to seeing the finished costume.

thank you sir! and thanks for the detail spot was the perfect time to catch that!!

Great Job! Looks amazing!


I thought getting a pair of wedge ankle boots would be easy but I was very wrong. Its taken a month to find a pair suitable but I love them and think they will work really well. I even found a blue pair so I don't need to dye them.
those boots are LIFE!

I think this is going to turn out Pretty Cool!

thanks mikid we hope so too!!!

just a small late night update

worked on the belt pouch this eve, modeled in Solidworks as it was a nicely mostly flat base pattern then ran through the Flex Tool
still working on the flat belting

Just a small one today folks spent the evening getting the belt parts done!
modeled in Solidworks using the Sub D model reference from the model in Fusion360 #CrossingTheStreams!

they have been split to match the splits on the original and will be pieced & bonded together on a belt base, extra size has been let on the rear so it can be trimmed to suit varying waist sizes



all that remains is the infernal shin and boot covers which I'm frankly a little daunted by but I think I have a strategy!!
it's starting to come together nicely as all the pieces begin to slot into place!

So this week has been Hectic !!! in un-related new to captain marvel we sold our house!! enter much whaling and stressing about finding a new home

and somewhat delayed captain marvel haha

we got together on Friday to work on the parts to get them ready to mold this weekend coming up

karen and Gwyn sanded while I worked prepping for mold on another project I'd been late on finishing for Sano (FOTK from TLJ) but that's done and on its way out this week! so back to the marvel!

we decided there is just too much detail on the gauntlets to pull in from the 3d print ready for mold so we are going to make a waste mold on that part too!

the belt parts printed up great and we set on them at speed! a little bit more Filling to go but they're getting there

still, some of the triangles to fix the top surfaces of then we'll be good to go! mostly cleaned via Exacto Scraping

tonight however I began the part I've been dreading since I returned to work .. the shins they are numerous in parts and fine detail and I'm concerned about not capturing all the original detail

I made a preliminary pass at the major basics this eve, moderately happy but need some more tuning on the top central trapezoid (edges from front aspect are curved but should appear straight

after some small tweaking, I was happier with that area's shape

next, I'll thicken out and begin to work on the surface detailing!

more to follow on Wednesday, as I'm out tomorrow catching up with some friends we haven't seen since before Christmas, and also as a mild celebration of the house sale!!

Now that the hard parts are designed I can start on patterning the rest of the costume. Trying to get the perfect fabrics has been tough and they are still not 100% accurate. My phone and bad lighting doesn’t show the true colours but you get the idea. I am using red suede scuba jersey, navy blue pleather and blue ultrapreme (thanks so much to cosplay fabrics for supplying us with this). The ultrapreme was a super bright blue so I dyed it with a black iDye Poly dye and it’s came out great!

I have drafted most of the patterns and I have made a start on putting together a draft costume using some scrap fabric. I’m working on the vest part and I have got the basic pattern worked out, just needs a few tweaks. I have put this together very roughly. The breast piece will be glued on top of this and I will add the back piece separately to cover the zip.

I forgot to share my initial drawings for the different layers of the costume. I will be using press studs to keep all the layers in place. Luckily you can see all these details from the looking at her Kree costume.

Today I have cut out the first draft pattern to see how they fit together and what the size and positions look like. It’s pretty good but needs some adjusting in places to tighten everything up and the knees are wrong. The final pants will be lined and top stitched with embossed sections, piping and the rubber gold and red details sewn in. This is a very rough mock up that I can use to draw on and cut up. I’m happy we finally worked out the strange crotch panel which I have circled. This has been the hardest pattern I’ve ever made especially since there are no side seams and has over 40 panels on the trousers alone.

I’m starting to play around with techniques before I start the real deal. The fabric I’m using is a really thin stretch pleather so I will be using interface to thicken it up and make it less stretchy. Quite a lot of panels are overlapped then top stiched and I’m happy with how my fabric looks for this part.

Today I’ve been patterning the undershirt. I still need to work on the sleeves but hopefully will be able to fix these once I’ve done a mock up. The other part I’m pretty happy with and currently cutting the pattern out.
