Avengers Gowns: Thor and Captain America by kelseymichele Avengers Gowns: Thor and Captain America by kelseymichele
THE FIRST IN THE SERIES OF AVENGERS GOWNS!

so hereís thor and captain america as evening wear. of all my designs, thorís is maybe one of the furthest from his actual costume, but itís one of my favorite. the cape is a supposed to be a sheer material. i really wanted a better way to incorporate the hammer, but the clutch is as close as iím getting this time round.

the capíns outfit was really fun, as i am absolutely in love with styles from the 30ís, 40ís, and 50ís. (of course, 40's is his era, but 50's is my favorite, thus the more classic 50's look. XD) i maaay have overdone it on the stars, but whocaresilovestars. his mask was translated into the fascinator oh her head, and his shield of course into her clutch.

about this series, i'd really like to do all 6 avengers from the movie as well as fury, loki, and possibly a couple of other characters. so far, i have sketches for all the avengers.

iron man and hulk are up next!!
EDIT:
IM and hulk are up! [link]
DOUBLE EDIT:
so are black widow and hawkeye! [link]
coulson, fury, and hill:

I love the 1950s influence in the Captain America one! It really fits it!

If you ever rework this, did you consider doing earrings for Thor's hammer? That hairstyle lends itself to dangly but simple earrings, though it may be a bit too much combined with the hairpin.

The entire series is very well done.

I love the patriotic dress! I'm crazy about vintage dresses like this. I have a black satin one sort of like it except it's not off shoulder and I just need a petticoat underneath it, along with some heels that are much more comfortable than the ones I have with the bows on the straps.

i dont think Thor's is far off from his suit. Because not only are you trying to get their costumes but their personalities too, into your fashion dresses.
and Thor's sleek material, and slick skin hugging style is PERFECT! for his royalty. That outfit you created has a pefect air of nobility to it. Which i personally think would be extremely hard to do without going into the 50's or princess dresses with crowns and staffs and stuff. and lo and behold you've done it! No crown and no princess poof dress and if i couldnt relate this to avengers i most well could point out that shes someone of high class/nobility/blood line/power.
Not to mention the BEAUTIFUL! clever way you added the ....(idk what they are called but the mini disc shields on thors costume) so the clever way you added those disc things into the fashion gown.
and i am absolutely IN LOVE with the chains!!!!!!!!
(side note, CAPTAINS IS SO DAMN PERFECT IT HURTS!) and no i think the stars were perfect!
a little over for a NORMAL girl of the 50's but considering CAPS personality and his sense of soldier towards his countries extra stars are PERFECT!!!

The dress - [link] - I was inspired by real 1950's dresses while constructing this :) I have an Independence Day themed photo shoot coming up in June, so I'll have more photos by then.

This picture is absolutely amazing. Hoping at some point to make the Thor dress (already have it semi planned in my head) and now I have seen Hill's dress I'm tempted by that too. Just wanted to ask, you said the cape is meant to be a sheer fabric, by this do you mean like chiffon/organza? Also what fabric were you thinking for the main dress? Also sounds really odd but what kind of shoes do you imagine to go with the Thor dress (I'm a bit OCD when it comes to costumes and like to have everything right even if you can't see it)

I loved your collection so much I felt inspired to do my own...of course I'm not a professional artist like you and though my dresses aren't nearly as good as yours, I really wanted you opinion on what I 've done.
I've done Thor, Loki, Captain, Iron Man and Hulk so far.
Here's the link: [link]

Your gowns are amazing by the way...

thank you! i'm honored to have inspired you. X3

your designs are very recognizable for each of the characters, which is great. i especially like your Cap design since it's so unlike what i've seen for him. i realy like how his shield kind of look like it's incorporated into the design. your Iron Man is also a favorite of mine.

So did you give a thought to fabric choices if someone were to make the dress? My friends and I have been dying to do an all female avengers group and this is something we'd like to try, (all creative credit going to you of course lol) i promise if it goes as planned I'll send you pictures!

I love the Thor gown! It's beautifully sexy and stunningly gorgeous!
That was similar to the design of my prom dress, excluding the cape. Lol
The Captain America dress is cute too. I kinda like the 40s style hairdo and hairpiece, and the skirt length looks correct, considering women kinda went for the "short skirt" style (length above the knee) starting in the 20s but becoming increasingly popular in the 40s. :)
