Peggy Carter — Captain America: The First Avenger
Cons: Indiana Comic Con 2015; C2E2 2015
Peggy is the best, duh. After watching a ton of Agent Carter, I had a strong desire to cosplay Peggy. And I knew I wanted to do the SSR uniform because who doesn’t love a lady in uniform? And gives me an excuse to seek out cute Captain Americas (although there was a surprising lack of CA’s at both cons! Womp womp). Plus, I was on a time crunch and didn’t have time to sew anything. So, all the pieces came together just in time for Indiana Comic Con. Wooo!
Wig: Dark brown wig from Epic Cosplay. I tried using foam rollers for styling, but that didn’t hold. So, I ended up styling each curl by hand, using Aussie Instant Freeze hairspray.
Shirt: I bought a white button-down shirt from Target.
Skirt: I found an olive pencil skirt on eBay.
SSR pins: If you google/eBay search “SSR pins,” you’ll find some!
Shoes: I borrowed my friend’s nude pumps, but after five minutes of wearing, I immediately switched to nude flats. I am terrible at heels.
Lipstick: Besame 1946 Red Velvet
Nail: Revlon Red
