Captain America Preview by Hamano--Ayumi Captain America Preview by Hamano--Ayumi
(This shot was taken by Foster Film Foto!)

Character: Fem!Captain America
Series: The Avengers Movie
Year Made: 2013
Debuted: Otakon 2013
About: One day *rosieru-chan and I were watching The Avengers for the 50th time and we said: "Let's cosplay this, because it's amazing and wonderful and Joss Whedon is a badass and it gives us an excuse to make good genderswap!" So I picked Steve and she picked Tony and it was either the greatest or the worst idea ever, because Cap's clothing has far too many fancy seams and Iron Woman is literally a full armored suit. (In the end though, we both survived. XD) For Cap's design I knew I didn't want to change much, even if she was a girl. I get frustrated by overuse of tummy flashes and cleavage and stilettos in genderswap unless it fits the character's personality. For Steve I knew it didn't, so I mostly just changed the mask and hair, which I still tried to keep as the same shape.

Pros: The outfit translated relatively well to a female body, and it's mostly comfortable! (Mostly, minus the mask.) Also that shield is my metal baby, I love it so. <3

Cons: The seamstresses for the official Cap outfit are ridiculous and have made the most complicated suit I have ever seen. I tried to follow as many of the seams as I could but alas, could not get them all (for sanity's sake). The suit is also made up of three different blues, but unfortunately I had to compromise with two. (I had trouble finding the dark blue already and my light blue didn't dye well) Lastly, despite that shield being beautiful, the paint I used gave me the hardest time of my life. *sigh*

Wooooow, that's really cool! I love the Avengers :D
I really felt like the movie had a nice balance to it, although Black Widow and Hawkeye seemed a little out of place. They'd be much cooler in a Batman-like setting since they're more of normal people with extraordinary skill than people with real superpowers. I love the scene where Thor and Tony fight over Loki and Captain America is just all "What a bunch of babies"

The Avengers is so great~ I really liked Black Widow and Hawkeye, even though they weren't as strong as the rest, I felt that they were the main source of intel. The 'original human line of defense' as it were. But maybe that's just me. XD Oh man, I've rewatched that movie so many times already...!

Hm, never thought of them that way. I really like their characters, I just felt like they were understated in the final fight. I guess that's pretty realistic though!
