Cardboard and Duct Tape Captain America Halloween Costume
My friends and I decided to dress up for Halloween as a group and the theme we picked was captains. We had Captain Morgan/Crunch/Lela/Kirk with me as Captain America. Since there were so many store bought versions of Captain I decided to make a cheap one out of Card board and Colored Duct Tape. I choose my design off of the brilliant work of the box hero corps. If you have not heard of them check them out! So basically I found a dumpster full of cardboard and went to town cutting the arms/head/legs/hands/feet into wearable segments. I then bought several rolls of Red, Blue, and White Duct tape and put them over the cardboard body to make the Captain America design. For the belt I used black craft foam. The face was drawn on first, and then I got an exacto knife to cut out any sort of black line detail to use as eye holes. I then used a peach paint to color in the face, and then I redrew the face details in with a sharpie. All of the detail on the body (Scales/Muscles/Outline) was done with a sharpie as well. While it was hot and difficult to walk in, I got countless compliments and everyone loved it!
