And Now Another Costume
It seems when it comes to images of superhero costumes when it rains it pours. This is a scan from Entertainment Weekly showing Chris Evans in costume for Captain America: The First Avenger. It looks like the concept art but seeing it made out of actual material makes it look a lot better. The concept art was too sleek. I complained about the use of black in the concept art. On the real outfit it's gray instead of black, and there's less of it. Now had I not seen the concept art and had time to get used to it than I might have ended up liking the real thing less than I do. Even the gloves look nicer than they did in the artwork, where they looked pretty generic. The helmet chinstrap is straight out of the Ultimates comics. Oh and the helmet has wings. They're just painted on but it's probably better that way. I don't know what those guys in the background are. Hydra solders?
