I know I'll additionally thank everyone in a journal post, but I want to here say also, that to everyone who came up to me, who took pictures with me, to :devMana-from-heaven:, and everyone else who hung around with me at Cos & Effect, thank you so so much.
Not one thing went smoothly on this cosplay, and when the paint on the shield almost didn't turn out the evening before the con morning, I broke down and tears, and almost gave up.
But you don't give on Captain America, because he wouldn't.
And that's what Cap has shown me: to keep on going.
This day was an absolute blast, and I'm beyond happy that I decided to rough it out... even the next day when I realized my contact had cut my eye, and my toes had cut themselves inside the boots.
Thank you all again.
Costume, including shield, made by me (with the shield being helped with by my mother when I was called into work)
