Cosplay: Nick Fury and Captain America

Share This Post

*This is a repost from 2016 for our Nick Fury and Captain America cosplays.

For part three of our trip to WonderCon 2016 we focused on our new cosplay, Cap and Nick Fury.  I finally, finally, pulled the trigger and commissioned a Captain America corset and leggings from Castle Corsetry.  Tis a thing of beauty!  Here are some pics of the work in progress:

Here are some pics of the finished product with close-ups of the seams, oh the seams!!!

I absolutely love this cosplay!  I will be wearing this for many years to come.  If you would like to commission some of their work and/or order some of their cinchers or corsets, please visit their site here.  Also, feel free to shoot them an email with any questions you might have.  I cannot recommend their work hard enough!

Here are some solo photos that Justin Davidson Photography took for me:

For Scout’s Nick Fury cosplay, we hit up Amazon for the coat.  It is actually an adult sized pleather trench.  It is made in China, so I knew the sizing would be tiny.  I was right.  My regular sized 10 year old needed an XL!  When ordering from sites like these, go through a reputable company like Amazon, and measure for sizing.  Then go up a size.  Especially when ordering for your kid.  If it is too big, it won’t be for long! The eye patch is also from Amazon.  Leggings, t-shirt and boots from Target.  The prop weapons are by Disgruntled Veteran on Etsy.  He makes con-friendly props that are a good price and quality.  Get them here.

Here are some pics of Scout’s cosplay:

We had an opportunity for Justin Davidson Photography to take some great cosplay photos of our new cosplay.  As always, Justin makes us both feel super comfortable and brings great ideas for locations, lighting and poses to the table.  If you want some great photos, please book him here.

For the fourth and final recap of our trip to WonderCon 2016, we’ll talk about the Marvel group photo and post some more photos of excellent cosplays we saw at the con.  Until next time…

Love, Kim and Scout

  1. I love this so much. Both of you look fantastic, and oh my goodness, Kim, that corset is truly a beautiful piece. I especially love the little cap sleeves. Will you gals be taking this to SDCC?
