You can head on over and hear us talk about our latest projects, our favorite characters, how to deal with con-creepers, and more!

First very early stages test of my build for Captain America’s Stealth Suit from The Winter Solider. 

Tonight I started playing with the star and stripes placement. I’m trying to nail it down with paper and tape before moving on to thermal plastic. 

So far I love how it’s turning out, but I have a lot left to do - crafting the star and stripes, adding panelling to the top, knee pads and red panelling to the pants, adding silver buckles to the belt and harness, securing the harness, sewing on patches, and adding leather to the boots.

And of course the shield. 

Casual Closet Cosplay Tuesday: Winter Solider Edition

We needed something to keep us from going mad while fabricating the real, much more complicated versions.

Real mechanical arm and shield coming soon.

Wondercon 2014 is in full swing, here are some fans we thought should get a second look.

maliceandvice:

About one week before WonderCon I threw together an Ellie Sattler outfit as as a comfy alternative for when I’d get sick of walking around in 6” heels and leather all weekend. 

I didn’t expect anyone to even recognize me, let alone find any other Jurassic Park cosplayers, but lo and behold! I found an excellent John Hammond! I was also stopped by the guys from the Jurassic Park Motor Pool who rebuild the iconic Jeeps and other cars from the films. And I just had people screaming “Jurassic Park!” at me randomly, which is really all I want out of life anyways. Basically I learned that you meet the most quality people when you dress up as Dr. Sattler. 

Best last minute comfy cosplay ever.
