The Challenge : Captain America First Avenger WWII costume

For Edinburgh Comicon 2015 this was to be my ultimate challenge - I’ve never cosplayed properly before, not to this extent, so this is how I made (IMO) cap’s coolest costume. Everything here purchased off eBay unless otherwise specified. I’m based in the UK so getting WWII US army kit was really hard!

1. The Jacket

Replica imitation leather jacket (£45). Cost a bit more to buy from the UK rather than china but worth it for the shipping time and without hidden import tax costs.

2. Trousers

WWII Replica Paratrooper Pants (£50). These have a generous fit and I needed a belt so maybe buy a size down.

3. Helmet and Goggles

M1 Helmet with liner (USED) (£25) US Paratrooper Leather Chin strap (£10)

I couldn’t in the time frame find the correct goggles so pictured above are Genuine 1940 issued RAF ski goggles. (£24)

4. Accessories 

M1938 WWII Replica Canvas Gaiters (£19) They didn’t have US army shoes in my size (5) so I used some spare brown leather rocketdog boots I had lying around.

US Leather Pistol Hip Holster WWII Repro (£17) US Canvas Webbing ammo belt and suspenders WWII Repro (£34)

Leather US Paratrooper Repro Gloves (£19) I didn’t end up getting the last part which is a bandage pouch x2 - I’m so small if I’d added these to the webbing it wouldn’t have worked. But they’re around £7 each.

5. Making the Shield and Spraying the Helmet

Made a template from paper and then cut the shape out of thin plywood (£15 from B&Q) 

Attached two leather handles at the back - one adjustable with a wingnut. Also attached an upside down picture frame hook for attaching onto the back of the webbing.

Used System 3 Acrylic paints, masking off lines with insulation tape.

For the stars used a paper template then off-white model spray paint. Finished off with clear matte varnish spray.

Sprayed the helmet directly with navy model paint. Used same off-white paint as above for the “A”. Dented it about a bit afterwards and didn’t use any varnish.

Women played a huge part in the history of Christianity…until they were written out. Before Christians could freely practice their faith, the whole thing was more secretive than a My Little Pony forum. Perhaps that is why the movement largely coalesced around women instead of wild-eyed prophets screaming their faith to the skies 24/7. Phoebe was the trusted messenger of Apostle Paul, and she was partly responsible for helping establish a standardized dogma. Women like Paula, Marcella, and Fabiola were the driving force behind social services projects that organized religion would eventually become known for – you know, little things such as monasteries and convents and hospitals for the underprivileged.
