Captain America is a superhero from the marvel universe. The original concept created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in the early 1940’s, Captain America is the all-American superhero. Captain America is the secret identity of Steve Rogers, who was initially rejected by the army volunteered for a governmental experiment that transformed him into a superhuman with incredible strength and a respected figure and a dissevered leader of the Avengers.
The Captain America costume broken-down in this article will be based around the recent Captain America films, portrayed by Chris Evans. I have included an expensive version of the Captain America costume along with a more affordable alternative. Both costumes don’t include the shield so I’ll add that below as well.
Full Captain America Costume
For the captain America costume I went with a completely custom made version I found on eBay. The costume is a little pricey, but I think it’s completely worth it if you are serious about dressing up and if you absolutely love Captain America. The costume is made primarily of cotton which is very comfortable and the quality was immediate when I first saw the costume out of the box. The subtle detail work is amazing. The costume can be made for both male and female which is always nice to see. Make sure you provide accurate measurements. The captain America costume is being shipped from china so be prepared to wait a little longer. The wait is worth it in my opinion. They do offer refunds if you are not happy or if there are any defects present, which is great to see as well.
Captain America Shield
The captain America shield I found a seller on eBay who custom makes them. The captain America replica shield is made from aluminium. When I made this costume I went with a cheaper alternative because I never came across this. If I knew of this beforehand I would have defiantly gone for this. I would advise you to contact the seller as I don’t think it comes painted, but I could be wrong. The description on eBay isn’t very clear.
Captain America style dress
I found this while I was browsing on Etsy. I didn’t buy this, but I thought I would include it for the ladies. The dress is made from cotton and according to the reviews its a great captain America costume. If you have any questions contact the seller.
