I didn't get those new batteries yet!
I'm going to regret doing this post with poor pics,
because it doesn't do this jacket any justice.
I mentioned before that I have been wanting to create a Winter Soldier hoodie, for the purpose of just wearing it around and feeling like I'm something cool (not related to anything Halloween). I did some searching online and found a couple of good tutorials.
Quickly I set to work in gathering my materials for this difficult project. There was the issue of using my best black hoodie for this, because I wasn't sure if I should take the risk and chop the arm off my favorite article of clothing. Eventually I broke down and did it anyway. Coincidentally, all the stuff that I would need for this, was already in my closet, like two hoodies (a black one for the body and a grey one for the arm), a sewing machine, black, red and white fabric paint (the white was regular acrylic paint, but the tutorial said it was ok to use it), and then of course some painting skills, with a bit of fangirl determination.
A snip, stitch and some brush strokes here and there, and my hoodie was completed in about 6 hours (of course I had to wait the next day for the paint to dry). Boy was it worth all that work! It looks amazing and almost realistic from a far away view. Way better than spending $40- $100 on one of these in stores, mine cost me absolutely nothing!
Posted it on Instagram the night it was finished, and everybody loved it! I'm very thankful for that.
I'm with you, till the end of the line.
Flexing my fake metal muscles.
Peace out guys!
See you next time!
