Captain America Accessories
These were parts of my first cosplay that I ever made from scratch. Leather is a strong suit for me, if I CAN use leather I will. The leather is stitched together by hand, and the buckles are made with a cool technique that I learned from a fella on youtube. He makes home made plastic using paper, elmer’s glue, super glue and baking soda. Many layers of paper with Elmer’s glue in between each layer, then coated in super glue mixed with baking soda which creates a sort of plastic apoxy thats sandable and paintable.
