For this 4th of July instead of doing a fashion look I decided to do a walkthrough of my Pinup Captain America. I wore this recently for Lights Camera Cosplay event put together by ScreamLinda.

This cosplay was all altered from already existing pieces I got off Amazon and thrifting. This method is easy for anyone who is still learning to sew or doesn’t feel comfortable making an entire cosplay just yet.
If you have followed my blog, every 4th of July I do pinup/50s-60s hairstyles, which was a major inspiration for this cosplay. I just wish I could dress pinup and rockabilly every day! I also drew inspiration from other cosplayers and fan art.
I added a star using the Beacon’s Magna Tac-809 ($11.18) to a tube top I found at a local clothing store (also found on Amazon ($9.25)). For the star, I used some white faux leather I had lying around, but you can get some at Joann’s or any local fabric store.
The corset I purchased off of Amazon ($10.99) and I sewed on the white stripes using some satin fabric from my local fabric store. The shorts I had thrifted, but can be found in Forever 21, Amazon, or anywhere that sells women’s fashion. The boots were thrifted and I spray painted them red, but I found these similar ones on Amazon.
Hair and Makeup:
For the hair I did hot rollers and then did a victory roll and rolled the sides.
For the makeup I did a color that was close to my skin color from the Huda Beauty Warm Obsessions Palette ($27). I added ‘Summer’ from Anastasia Beverly Hills Sun Dipped Glow Kit in my inner corner, cheek bones, nose, and cupid’s bow ($40). I wanted to continue with the pinup look with a black wing and bold red lip. To top off the look I added false lashes.
