This is (basically) how the conversation went down:
WCA: "Rose, you need a Marvel character to be officially brought into our group."
WCA: "Shield agents are very easy to put together for the sake of the initial application."
WCA: "Captain America could always use USO girls. How about you do one of the USO girls?"
Me: "I'd rather be Captain America."
WCA: "In that case, let me introduce you to American Dream."
So. I picked up her comics and I truly loved her, her story, and her history. So I said "yes, Dream, I'll strap myself into a unitard for you."
On a more personal level, my grandparents came to the USA during WW2 from Russia. They didn't like to talk about what happened during the war, and were grateful to have have gotten over here at all. Most of my earliest memories are of my grandpa. Though I mourn the loss of our eastern European culture due to his adamant insistence on assimilation, I know that ultimately, my life was improved because of him. He'd be hella proud of this today. This one's for you, gramps.

Special thanks to Ed, Jessica, and Sean for your contributions as well!
With this gorgeous costume and your perfect portrayal of the character American Dream, you honor him and HIS american dream.
I love the realism in your outfit and the details are gorgeous. To say make a beautiful American Dream character is an understatement. You naturally fit the character's personna and would love it too
