2 costumes for sam wilson captain america
@KDiddy3300 has crafted two sets of costumes for Sam Wilson Captain America – a character beloved to the Tampa cosplayer. He has been cosplaying the character for more than five years.
Based on comic character
His first costume is based on the comics character. The wingspan is approximately 15 feet, and the weight of the wings makes it challenging for him to wear them a convention, where he likes to walk around and chat with other cosplayers.
Based on MCU character
The second costume is based on the MCU Avengers franchise and TV series. These wings are lighter than the original design, spanning about 10 feet. He most often wears this costume at conventions.

@KDiddy3300 has been featured in many magazines, including Florida Cosplay Digital Magazine’s May/June 2020 issued titled “10 Florida Cosplayers you need to know about.” The magazine, published by Florida Comic Cons, shares more about how he crafted the costumes.
