Best WWII Captain America Costume Guide

WWII is where it all began for Captain America; the alter ego of Steve Rogers. The once-scrawny kid that was denied entrance into the Army decided to take matters into his own hands and choose his destiny. Though Steve Rogers had no idea what was in store for his life, he certainly made an impact during World War II as seen in the Marvel movie, Captain America: The First Avenger. Get Steve Rogers’ vintage World War II look with this WWII Captain America costume guide.

Captain American had a particular style at the beginning of his superhero days, and now you can get the same look for cosplay! Be sure to grab the classic style Captain America Helmet, Goggles, Shield, and T-Shirt. Once you have the basics down, get more of a 1940’s look with a brown Biker Leather Jacket, Tactical Pants, and Army Gaiters. Captain America’s costume also includes a Leather Shoulder Holster, a Tactical Utility Pouch, and Winter Gloves.

About WWII Captain America

Marvel’s Captain America wasn’t always a superhero, he actually started out as quite the opposite. Before he was known as Captain America, he went by the name Steve Rogers. Steve lived during World War II but wasn’t accepted into the U.S. Army because he couldn’t pass the physical requirements to be accepted into the military. That didn’t stop him from making a difference for his country.

Steve decided to be a part of the test group known as “Operation: Rebirth.” Professor Abraham Erskine started the project in an attempt to bring U.S. Military soldiers to the highest physical condition possible. What Steve didn’t anticipate was being exposed to Vita-Rays that would keep his body at peak physical strength forever! Steve’s new body allowed him to become a soldier and to accomplish all of the goals he dreamed of when accepted into the U.S. Military.
