My Miss Captain America Costume
Before I start this blog post, I wanted to say that this is my favourite costume and favourite set of photos that I have ever done here on Raindrops of Sapphire. Not only is Captain America my favourite comic book character as you all know, but turning myself and these photos into a real life comic book was like a dream come true for me too. It’s taken hours to edit and do this entire shoot from start to finish, but I have to say that I’m incredibly proud of these photos and I haven’t had as much fun on a shoot as this!
I originally made a blog post earlier this month with Halloween costume ideas and wanted you all to guess which one I would be choosing. Most of you got it right as I had chosen to be Miss America! I got this costume from Escapade and I think it’s fantastic. It fits really well actually and is quite comfortable, but it doesn’t come with the boots, so I had some help getting hold of these thigh high pvc red ones from a friend and I think they suit the costume perfectly. Halloween is one of my favourite days of the year, not because of the holiday as I don’t celebrate it, but because it means I get to dress up in costume and I love any excuse for that! Anyway, I really hope that I’ve done Captain America justice and you all love it too!
And for those of you who just want to see the outfit and aren’t into the full comic book experience, I’ve also included the original photos without editing as well for you, plus a couple of extra ones. I hope you enjoy them! Happy Halloween! Lorna xx.
