Peggy Carter is my favorite character in any of the Marvel films. She is strong, beautiful, and a total BAMF - "dismantling the patriarchy one mid-century misogynist at a time." (The Mary Sue) The first time I saw Captain America: The First Avenger, I decided I wanted to cosplay Peggy and spent about 3 hours after the movie was over being angry that Steve never got to take her dancing. I cried, followed by hours of anger and irritability :P When Marvel featured this costume on their official Captain America Facebook page, I was on Cloud 9. What an honor!
My Strategic Scientific Reserve lapel pins are made of real brass, and the jacket buttons are vintage from WWII.
