Captain America: Stealth Suit, Rollout!

At the beginning of the year, I started building my next Costume in anticipation of the April 4th release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Most of the stuff came together quite easily, but then one thing led to another and I ended up running out of time to REALLY dig in and make this suit look screen-accurate.  We still managed to get things together by the premier of the latest installment by Marvel, and I'm still happy with how it turned out.

It worked awesome for the premier!  Got some compliments, saw others in costume, took some pictures, it was fun!  Then I got to see Cap sling that shield like never before in what turned out to be a spectacular film!  I had my expectations high, but the actual movie made those seem LOW.  The fight scenes, the plot, the one-liners, did I mention the fight scenes??  Holy cow was it a RIDE to watch!!  I won't spoil it for you.  Go see it!  Marvel really nailed this one and you'll enjoy every second of it.

As for the future for this costume, this is really just the first Phase.  There was more planned for it, but amidst everything else going on in my life right now, I just ran short on time to really do this Stealth Suit justice.  The majority of that work will be on the shirt, as everything else is pretty much set.  I'll be getting this thing more detailed, more accurate, and have it all awesome by the Halloween Game this fall.

In the meantime, GO SEE THE MOVIE!

  1. Excellent job! I'm a sucker for a good costume and I really dig the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem. Your work on this is Marvelous. I can't wait to see the movie.
