Captain America

Fancy Dress Lady Cap

Marvel Universe

Last Updated: 11-02-2012

This was thrown together in about 3 weeks, after I learned a friend needed a Captain America for her genderbent Avengers group. (I'd have preferred Thor, but they already had one.)

What I had -really- wanted was to go with a 40's style dress, but due to lack of time, I decided to just do a semi-formal modern look and bought a dress online. I liked the idea of having sequins on the bodice, to mimic comic Cap's scale armor.

I was going to paint red stripes onto a white leather corset I'd ordered, but I didn't like the look of the corset so I hastily threw together a belt, made of vinyl, which laces in the back. If I'd had time I probably would've added boning, since without it it scrunches up a bit.

The purse I found at a Halloween store and spruced up a bit. I removed the straps, bedazzled the front with seed beads and sequins, and added a new chain strap. It took foreeeever to do, but I think it looks pretty neat.
