These are my second attempt at Captain America cookies, this time without a cowl. While the last cookies came out fairly well, I wanted a shot at giving Cap his Avengers Chris Evans hair. Like other cookies, he’s a plain sugar cookie topped with royal icing. details are touched up with edible silver and white lustre dust and edible silver glaze. Black lines are drawn with black food coloring markers.
I didn’t change really much of anything about the costume, so it’s just the head that got a revamp. I tried a few ways of styling the hair here. I also played around with candy sequin eyes, using light blue candy sequins and also using black food coloring markers to color another set because the light blue looked a bit odd, more like he was mind-controlled à la Tesseract than blue-eyed, if that makes sense.
How to (not) Fumble Your Way Through Fabricating a Metal Captain America Shield, OR Learn From My Mistakes Because Metal is Hard by shinykari cosplay
First things first: This tutorial would not be possible without the immensely helpful and brilliant Valor from therpf.com. He did this first (and better!) and posted all about it, including photos and diagrams. I would highly suggest reading through that whole thread before reading this tutorial or even attempting to make your own shield.
This tutorial assumes you have at least some experience working with power tools. I had never worked with metal before, but am relatively competent with wood (sawing, drilling, sanding, etc.). That translated pretty well to metal, though there were some hiccups. I’ve added links to products where possible, to make sure I’m 100% clear about what I’m discussing. Harbor Freight is a really great store that carries a large selection of budget tools, which are perfectly fine for this project; I’ve linked to their website whenever possible, because cosplay is already expensive enough!
One more thing before I get down to it: always wear eye protection and gloves. ALWAYS. I cannot stress this enough. I know it seems like no big deal, what are the chances that I’ll get a splinter in my eye or whatever, but it really really is. Safety glasses/goggles and gloves are inexpensive and save you from sharp edges and flying debris. You also may want ear protection, especially when using the jigsaw and/or grinder. Those puppies are loud.
Since this ended up being a very, very long post, I’ve put all the materials and instructions behind a cut. You should definitely read through the whole post before you start (and Valor’s post too).

Finished my Kree star pillow! I am, *ahem* rusty at certain parts of quilting and/or finishing, and also apparently can’t measure. Ah well. The small star in the middle is actually in gold thread; the purple is disappearing ink that hasn’t quite disappeared yet. And yes, that is some seriously loud Marvel comics print as the envelope back. I have no shame.
In honor of the new Cap trailer (WHICH HAS RUINED MY ENTIRE LIFE I MUST SAY) here’re a couple pics of these losers. Finally got them done the other day and decided they needed to be here. :)
So just in case you’ve been looking for a pattern for a LEGO Spiderman, Wolverine, Hulk, Thor, Captain America or Iron Man, well… look no further. Well okay, you might need to look a little further. As in these need to be tested before they’ll be in my shop – as freebies. (Hands up if you’re keen to test!).
I’m listing these as a Work in Progress… mainly because my darling J keeps coming in and saying “What about suchandsuch character?” or correcting me on the colours in my sketches. Even as I write this blog post he’s asking “Where’s Ms Marvel?!” What would I do without him?! I’m also a little concerned it’s going to be like the LEGO Star Wars patterns… where I’m not permitted to stop until ALL THE CHARACTERS are done. Dear God. What have I started?!
Some people are so talented it makes me vaguely angry.

Here’s a pendant i made to look like a “battle worn” dog tag of the Carol Corps. I gave this as a birthday present to a girl I really like.
I hope you Carol Danvers’ fans like it!
here’s the full imgur album of how I made it if you’re interested. http://imgur.com/a/X2eGY
Captain Marvel Hooded Scarf
So after I picked up this awesome Captain America hooded scarf at NYCC, I wanted to make one for myself! I love Carol’s design and love what I’ve read of the series so far, so it was a perfect choice :D
It’s made from cotton and lined with fleece, and for a first attempt at something like this I think it came out quite well! Definitely a few things I would change next time
not accidentally reversing the red and blue is a good place to startbut overall I’m very pleased and wanted to share it!
