Making Captain America’s Shield from a Fan

Captain America costume

Cosplay is often about investing a ton of time and some money into making screen accurate costumes. But that’s far from the only way to cosplay. You can wear costumes off the rack, wear casual cosplay, or go super low budget. It all counts. Anucha “Cha” Saengchart focuses on the low budget end of the spectrum and is known for his Facebook page Lowcostcosplay. He uses everyday objects, affordable household supplies, and more to create easy and inexpensive costumes. The results vary, but it’s worth browsing Saengchart’s portfolio just to appreciate his resourcefulness.

One of his latest creations is Captain America and his shield. Rather than modifying a trash can lid for the shield, Saengchart drew the fan pattern on the blades of a fan with markers. He covered the front of the fan with what looks like blue tape and a star, and once the fan is on, the spinning blades make it look like Captain America’s shield. Done and done. This is clearly a temporary solution for the purpose of pictures, but hey, it means you also have a Captain America fan.
