In comic book conventions, most cosplayers dress-up in detailed costume designs of their favored character, but Kristin Sirota takes a more interesting route with her Avengers dress design.

The evening gown design is a unique take on cosplay that isn’t often seen in comic book conventions, since most of the people who dress-up for these conventions tend to outfit themselves with more conventional design frames. The Captain America-inspired dress was patterned after a 1950s dress that Sirota had discovered. The design fabrics used by Sirota are materials that are dissimilar from the costume designs that currently proliferate most comic book conventions.

The Captain America dress isn’t just something to be worn during comic book conventions, but also several American national holidays.
