Best-ever Sam Wilson Captain America cosplayer @KDiddy3300 to appear at St. Pete Comic Con 2022

Tampa cosplayer @KDiddy3300 may be one of the best ever Sam Wilson Captain America cosplayers. The character’s popularity continues to skyrocket after the MCU’s “Avengers” franchise as well as its TV series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.” In addition, the cosplayer has kept pace with the MCU, crafting a couple of different Sam Wilson Captain America cosplays. And @KDiddy3300 is appearing at St. Pete Comic Con 2022 on January 8-9 at the Coliseum.

The comics version of Sam Wilson Captain America

His first Sam Wilson Captain America cosplay, created in 2019, has red wings that are based on the comics version of the character. For the cosplay, @KDiddy3300 repurposed an empty backpack and added wings created from Eva foam with a piping structure. The wings move vertically with a pully wheel system. It took him six weeks to build the wings. The mechanics and large wing span of approximately 15 feet makes the wings rather heavy to wear.

His second Sam Wilson Captain America cosplay, created in early 2021, is based on the MCU TV series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. This second set of wings took him two weeks to build. And with a wing span of approximately 10 feet and fewer moving parts, the second set of wings are lighter than his original creation, making them better for walking around conventions.

In addition, he commissioned the body suit, which was based on the TV series and tailored for his physique. And he crafted the new gauntlets, belt and shin guards — all to match the TV series.
