After some late night Pinterest searching I decided to go with a cute, vintage, lady captain America.
Here is the dress I started with. I already owned it! I bought it months ago on sale at target and it was too big. I ended up buying another one in my size and forgetting to take this one back. Now, long after the return policy has ran out, this dress will serve a purpose!
So far cost: $0
This is what I bought for the costume. Red opaque tights and a red and white striped infinity scarf. I could have gone to the fabric store but I thought the scarf would work just as well and that saved me another trip.
Scarf and tights: $12.50
With my comic fabric and some webbing I had on hand I made this super awesome bag. (I need to find the tutorial I used and link it!)
Any other people new to the cosplay thing?
