Most of you know that I am a fan of Superman, but do you know my Marvel comics counterpart? Captain America of course! So I decided I wanted to make a Captain America shield and set off across the net to find ideas and while I certainly do want to make a metal one someday I found this excellent FAQ to make a flying shield over at Instructables written by Seamster. I’ve never tried to make anything really before, except for a Batman costume years ago. I remembered having a good time making the costume so I gave the shield a go. Perfect? No. But I liked how it turned out and I plan on making a few more including a metal version someday. Until then enjoy some pictures.
