Captain America: The Patriot by Lux-Laterna Captain America: The Patriot by Lux-Laterna
The Avengers' Fearless Leader: Captain America.

My mom always used to ask me why I loved Captain America... since, you know, I'm Canadian. But after a very sturdy answer explaining that he doesn't just stand for America, but rather justice, honesty, loyalty and determination, I definitely won the argument.

So although a lot of people thought this was my real hair, that is only partially true. I died all my front roots that same gold color, and brushed them back into the wig, so the hair line was entirely real. I definitely fluked out that it ended up being the same color. Probably (well, most certainly) not the cheapest way to achieve the real hair look, but I pleasantly happy with the results :)

Worn at Cos&Effect 2012, Vancouver BC.
Shield and costume made by me.

I agree, Cap is more than the costume and the name, he's not only what all Americans should aspire to be, but what all people should aspire to be. Normally the goody-goody heroes are boring, but I think Steve is a wonderful character.

It's actually 2 separate shirts: the blue, and the white with stripes ^^
It doesn't take too long either! If you need to see it up closer, feel free to note me ^^

You're pretty cool! And technically Canada is a part of the Americas so it does make a lot of sense, though I like your reason better

For a second I read that as "He just doesn't stand America." and I thought "Well, no, not now he wouldn't. Good on you."

Anyway, still lookin' sexy ;)

Girl, you are insane (no offence meant-it's the same as the saying of 'that's sick' to describe something amazing or great) with this costume, and the reason why you dress up as Cap! This is being faved and saved by me, and also added to to two other groups by me. Great work, soldier.
