"You here with a mission, sir?"
The section that comes across with the star will likely be made from the fabric cut out of the lower torso for the red and white stripes. It'll be permanantly attached from the left side and fold over the center and likely velcro to the right side with the star mounted in the middle of it. The white patches on the inside of the arms will be a little trickier, as I can't decide whether I should cut out holes and mount the pieces in there or if I should just sew the parts over the existing blue fabric.
Another tricky part will be the gloves. I've got red gloves, but building the gauntlets will be interesting. I may end up just building one gauntlet since the other one would be underneath the shield I've got. I already plan on re-using the blue pants from the previous costume on this and just adding a few silver accents to them, much like the chevrons on the shoulders of the jacket. I have no idea what I'm going to do about that blue utility belt, but if all else fails, I can just leave it out. As with last year, I'll be going helmet-less as well, which suits me just fine.
