Falcon – Winter Soldier

Guess what I’m watching at this very moment?!? Seriously, it’s going to take me an hour to write this post – cause The Winter Soldier is finally out!!

If you know me at all, you know that Captain America is my favorite Avenger. And in the new movie, he gets just what every superhero needs: a sassy sidekick! The very first scene sets the tone with the two of them running around a track – Sam running at a normal speed and the Cap constantly passing him, every time saying “On your left”, oh so polite! Which drives Sam nuts :)

Now Sam is a pilot, but not just any pilot – he gets a pair of wings (sorry – spoooiiler… Whoops!) that are the coolest thing ever! I used the Recess Raglan for the shirt. The wings are made from transfer paper and topstitching. I kinda love them!

As far as I can tell, The Falcon doesn’t have a cool emblem (yet), so I freezer paper stenciled this falcon on the back pockets of his latest Small Fry Skinnies (upcycled from a pair of my old jeans).

And the trench coat – ah the trench! The thing I was most blown away with in the Winter Soldier, was the sheer amount of jackets that Steve and Sam have! Wow! I got so caught up examining the details, I missed whole scenes! There is one at the very end that Sam wears that I just fell in love with. There is like literally one screenshot of it on the entire internet, so I was going from that and my memories.

Not too shabby, huh?

I started with the Jude Jacket. Then added a front shoulder flap, a back vent, straps on the sleeves and the collar, in-seam pockets, and a classic trench button front. I found three skinny belts at Goodwill that all had similar buckles and used those for the straps.

Of course, I had to line it with a star fabric as a nod to the Cap :) And look at that – 1:04 into the movie! What did I say?

Don’t forget to add your superhero-themed looks to the CraftingCon link up! You could win fabric money… Jus’ sayin’ :D
