Costoberfest Spotlight - Cap Santiago
Hi! I’m Cap Santiago!
How long have you been cosplaying? What was your first costume?
Since 2006, my first costume was Kinikuman Neisi from the anime Ultimate Muscle.
Do you make your costumes? If so, include us in the process!
Yes I do. When it comes to making costumes I research the best photos online or in my own comics that best feature the character I want to create. Then I determine what is doable because what you see in comics sometimes can not exist in real life, so you alter certain things depending on your character of choice. Then my focus goes into what fabric to use that works best for the look. Once I have the best fabric, there is the actual cutting out patterns and sewing. For armor there are numerous ways of doing it, though I perfer making the molds for the pieces then having them Vac Formed before adding the finish touches.
What would be your dream Marvel costume?
My dream Marvel Costume of all time would be to put together an entire Nova Corps that would be awesome or The Superior Six.
What would you say is your favorite part about cosplaying?
That would have to be bringing to life the characters I love, I only cosplay characters that I read about and inspire me. Plus mingling with fellow Marvel fans of the same character or all general stuff Marvel related.
Thanks Cap! You can check more from Cap at facebook.com/CapSantiago822.
