Materials Needed:

Blue fabric

Tan Pants

Red long sleeve shirt

Pilots wings

Tan Gloves

Red face mask

Black Belt

Black Boots


Step 1: You can find the fabric you need for the costume at or Both places have a wide selection of fabric for a great price. You will want to purchase blue fabric, and possibly some red to make the face mask.

Step 2: The red long sleeve shirt can usually be found at a thrift store. It does not have to be in a certain style, unless you want it to look more like the 60’s clothing, as that is when this costume idea came about.

Step 3: The tan pants should be riding pants. In other words the thighs of the pants sort of balloon out like a horse jockey, before tightening at the knees to the ankles.

Step 4: The black belt should be a utility belt rather than a dress belt.

Step 5: The boots can be combat, riding boots, or any other boot as long as they ride to the mid calf.

Step 6: To the red shirt you will need to sew on or iron on gold pilots wings. The wings should be large enough to cover your chest, not just a small pair of clip on wings.

Step 7: The blue cape will need to hook around your neck. It will not lay over the shoulders but hang to the knees by your neck. The cape is just a straight piece of material.

Step 8: The last step for Captain Metropolis is the mask. The mask should match the shirt color, and cover just the eyes. You can tie it behind your head.
