Marvel Movies: The Winter Soldier Costume

This costume included a big first for me: Working with leather. After scouring local thrift stores, we found two leather coats that could be carved into pieces and remade into Bucky's Winter Soldier coat. I derived the pattern for the jacket from my Doctor Horrible coat pattern, and I made the silver glove from scratch.

My husband created the bionic arm with Worbla, a thermoplastic. The arm features a fully functional elbow joint, so the only thing he can't do is raise his arm above his head.
