Captain America: Man Out of Time by Lux-Laterna Captain America: Man Out of Time by Lux-Laterna
First Photo up from Fan Expo 2013!!

This month started off pretty terrible ... bike accident on the first to wipe out my right side, then getting sick a week later... but when meeting Stan Lee as your hero is the deadline, powering on is all that matters!

This is my original design Captain America, with my custom made shield - finally put together so I can use it.
So I kind of hate sewing pleather... seriously .. pleather fly = not fun.
But after the day is said and done, after Stan Lee even said Wow to my costume. EVERYTHING was worth it, and I had an AMAZING Time!! Met so many great people.

I'll be making new stars for this that are 3D and taking this one to Europe when I go in October! Couldn't be more stoked.

Thanks to :iconweatherstone: for taking some epic shots for me :]

Ok, so, I am just so impressed/amazed/in awe of your Captain America cosplay! You just look amazing, and that costume. MAN, THAT COSTUME. So sleek and professional looking.

I am really sorry to hear that your month started off so badly. :( It sounds like you've had a rough time. I hope you're feeling better now! That's so awesome that you got to meet Stan Lee though!!

Are you wearing a wig?
If so do you have a link to where you got it?

Lux-Laterna Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
So, secret time: I hate that wig. The only reason I still use it is because of the color.

The hair I do for Captain America is.. expensive. Basically, I dye all of my roots and first few rows of hair the same gold color as the wig, so the hair line is completely real, and set back the wig on my real hair, so it looks like my own hair. [[link] is basically what it normally looks like]. But it costs me around 200 bucks every time I do it, so I save it only for special situations, such as for this costume premiere at Fan Expo to meet Stan Lee. The wig itself I've had to style and cut myself. It used to be longer, shaggier, and ... bleh. not good.
I really hope to find a new one of the same color.

You have sexy hair....anyway. WOW 200 anti no way i'd pay that much or make people pay me that much to do that. (does hair)
Wow so that's really awesome tho i'd like to see you put it on and get ready
why not just dye your hair all that color and style your hair like his?

:iconlux-laterna:
Lux-Laterna Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
My hair stylist is awesome. Cut and dye for 200 without frying my hair, I'm lucky.
As for going full blonde, oh god no. My hair has a red undertone, so it dyes gold. Which looks fine for Cap who's a comic book character, but for everyday wear it just looks like a fake blonde dye job. Plus my hair grows super fast and I have dark brown eyes (wearing contacts here) so I would look super awful super quick hahaha.

Seriously, this is stunning. Truly amazing work (and as someone who has sewn with pleather for many cosplays in the past year, I totally feel your pain). Also it's great to hear that you had such a stellar time at Fan Expo! :heart:
