Agent Peggy Carter, the love interest of Captain America, sets the standard for 1940’s post-war fashion. You can get the vintage look of Agent Carter, played by Hayley Atwell, for yourself.
Dress up with an Evan-Picone Blue Shawl Collar Jacket and Skirt, Long Sleeve White Blouse Shirt, Red Bowknot Felt Fedora, and Patent Round Toe Mary Jane Pumps. Accessorize like Agent Carter with Park Avenue Pearls Studs, Evening Envelope Red Clutch Bag, O.P.I Danke Shiny Red Nail Polish, Besame Red Velvet Lipstick, and, of course, a Crossman Semi-Auto Air Pistol just in case you get into a tough spot.
With a love interest like Captain America, you better bring your “A” game cosplay if you plan to hit the convention circuit as Agent Peggy Carter. While anyone can cosplay Agent Carter, guy or girl, this particular character can be fun to emulate for our lady cosplayers.
There are no silly accessories with this costume; it is 1940’s post-war high fashion, and it’s glorious. A fitted skirt suit, pumps and that hat! You have to include her creamy red lipstick and a small faux gun that fits snugly into a matching clutch.
A group endeavor might include her lifetime love, none other but Captain Steve Rogers aka Captain America. If you’re more of ‘an opposites attract’ kind of person, you could always dress as a Hydra Agent to mix things up. A stop in a local thrift shop could produce a wealth of old military uniforms. Agent Carter can show up en masse with a team of fellow agents. Look at our featured photos for more ideas and always feel free to submit your own pics!
Agent Peggy Carter is no damsel in distress. She is a trained fighter, a female counterpart to Captain Rogers. Even with her deadly training, she is a woman and in love. Comic books proclaim her as an American, but the movies have given her a British accent and backstory; in either case, she is smart, savvy and an equal to her love interest, though some audiences don’t seem to recognize that about her. In a fair fight, she could probably take down the captain herself!
Agent Carter goes through the heartache of losing Captain Rogers, or so she thinks, but still manages to fight on and champion her cause. She is loyal and brave, a credit to her country. Peggy is also carelessly stylish in both books and movies. Meld together her traits and a picture of a passionate and courageous woman emerges, a woman willing to fight and die for what she believes in. She is a worthy character to cosplay in support of empowerment or just for fun!
