Captain America: Oh Captain, My Captain by Lux-Laterna Captain America: Oh Captain, My Captain by Lux-Laterna
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)

What are the odds that the first day I made a Tumblr account I ended up watching a video with you guys spazzing about in your Avengers outfits, and then first thing the next morning I end up finding your account on DA via someone I watch?
Like seriously. I was meant to love this shit.
Now to go raid your gallery because you're an awesome fucking Cap. <3

How'd you do the boots? I've been working on a cap costume on and off for over a year and I've half assed the boots with red gaiters but thats far from ideal.

They're honestly just black knee high boots, and I made a pleather cuff for them. Then I glued on the cuff to the inside and a touch at the back and spray painted them red. Easy as pie and cost me 15 bucks. :)

I thought the shirt was a royal blue, and I thought his boots were more straight up and down instead of the Captain jack sparrow boot. But Great costume though
