Lady Captain America Saves The Day

Femme Captain America

Sewing, crafting, and building are all solid costuming skills – but so is being resourceful. Cosplayer WonWon of The Sisters Mischief has at least some of the knowledge mentioned but when under a tight deadline, she put together the above Captain America costume with found items. It doesn’t make her costume any less impressive and though people new to the hobby should always try to learn new skills, putting together costumes from clothing pieces you find in thrift shops is a wonderful way to get into it. Here’s where WonWon tracked everything down:

-The helmet was my dad’s – I spray-painted it blue and hand painted the on ‘A’
-I ordered the goggles off of Ebay for just a few dollars and gave them a weathered look by literally rubbing mud (and some paint) on them
-The undershirt was printed by In Shining Armor Designs
-I ordered the bomber jacket from Ebay for $20ish dollars
-Cargo pants – thrift store for $5
-Boots from Target
-Vintage WW2 Spats from Etsy
-Suspenders – Military Surplus Store
