Hi everbody,
a few weeks ago, i've decided to make the cap costume from the coming avengers movie.
Not excatly the movie suit... my own interpretation.
Cause... i don't like the boots, i've decided to order other ones...
Here is a pic which boots and gloves i will use:


But first i begun with the helmet...
Uhm... not straight the helmet... first i've needed my head to make the mold.
I never did it before, so it was very... hmm... amazing and funny.
My first attempt to make a modell of my head was a little desaster, so i had to do it again and that's what it looks like now:


Than i begun with forming the helmet... to make the story short:
The first helmet didn't fit and i've needed a second try. That't what i did this sunday the whole day. Now i have to wait till it's dry to go on:


Gloves arrived yesterday and i think, they fit perfect:

After a few days of working, here are some pics of the helmet with color:






In the background you can see the boots i will use.
The paint is a bit too shiny. I will make it more matte (right word?) with a coat of matte clear finish.

Ok guys... this part is finished...






The ear caps are not attached to the helmet at the moment. I don't know, if i should attach them or not.

The helmet is not that perfect but i like it :)

Ok... it's going on.
I know... it's far away from being perfect but it's my first completely self sewn suit... next will be the collar tomorrow. May be i will start the belt these days the chest star, the shoulder stripes and... most important... the shield...
