CAPTAIN AMERICA Costume Description

Movie Captain America by Joey Paur

We all have a pretty damn good idea of what the Captain America costume in going to look like in the new Marvel film being directed by Joe Johnston. We all have a good idea of what we are going to see. But what you may not know is that there will be two costumes for Captain America in the film, both costumes come from designs we've seen before. 

One Costume is going to be a more flashy colorful costume. This is the costume that will be worn when America is showing off their new war hero during the USO shows. This flashy costume will be a nod to the original design. However, This will not be the outfit he wears in combat. The Cap will have a separate suit that he wears when he runs into battle to kick Nazi ass. This second outfit is a battle-ready suit. Here is the full description as given by JoBlo,

The trademark wings that flank the side of Cap's hood are gone. In fact the "hood" is gone entirely. In its place is a more traditional M1 Army helmet though this helmet does come over the eyes to give Cap a traditional "domino mask" look. Still present is the white "A" in the middle of the hat (nothing fancy, this is the traditional font), though like the rest of the costume, the blue of the helmet is much more muted than the blue in the comic costume. A thick black strap comes down over the ears and connects under the chin.

Cap is wearing a blue neck piece but from what I saw, it's hard to tell if this is connected to something under the helmet or whether it's something like a turtleneck (I'm gonna guess the latter). 

On his chest still lies the white star though it's not as prominent as the comic version. The costume is still split horizontally through the middle with blue on top and red and white stripes on the bottom. But instead of stripes, it's actually just a white base with two red utility straps acting as stripes. These straps affix to a metal loop at the midpoint of the chest and a black strap extends up to the shoulders from that point.

His shoulders have pads over them that extend down to about mid-bicep and are attached via a brown strap under the arm. The sleeves (for lack of a better word) are white with a fairly standard brown glove.

The fabric of the costume doesn't look like the scaled material of SPIDER-MAN but more of a leather fabric, like something you'd see on one of the X-MEN. Cap wears an old school utility belt, the likes of which we haven't seen much in modern superhero movies. Utility belts were a staple of comic superheroes but haven't made the transition but here Cap sports a rather thick belt made up of brown pockets with a silver buckle.

As you might expect, there's no codpiece to be found and Cap is wearing blue pants tucked into brown utility boots. The pants aren't skin tight but they aren't baggy either. And for those who are curious, the pants actually have a fly so Cap can take a leak if he needs to.

I can't wait to see this character come to life, and like all of you I'm very interested in seeing what exactly these two costumes are going to look like on the big screen. The image above is a fans creation of the Captain America description that you just read through.

What do you think about the description of the suit given?
