Here are some costume designs, just in case Peter Parker becomes Captain America one day. (because why not?)

Here's another piece I did a few years back featuring another variation: fav.me/d3n1i8h

You are the author, I am about to do this cosplay in a couple of weeks and I wanted to know the source of the design. Great design btw, I choose him because I love both characters and wanted a spiderman with a prop. I will credit you as a source, thank you!

Did you know they are now making a costume from your design sold here?  www.herostime.com/Captain-Amer…

More like annoyance and mixed feelings.

I've contacted herotimes.com and received a response. They get the print design from another site, and the guy who owns that site (CrazyFranky) credits me and links back here. But herotimes.com is not crediting me on their site or on the associated (and very cool) youtube video, and money is changing hands between both parties and customers. I'm currently trying to resolve the issue with both parties.

I'm happy people like this design and are making their own to cosplay (as several people have done and asked and kindly asked permission to do), but I don't appreciate my artwork being co-opted and sold for profit without my knowledge. The spirit of this design obviously owes a tremendous amount to the original Spidey and Cap designs, and as a work of fanart is for other people's enjoyment. This goes for all my work that i post on this site.

Fanart and money is a grey area to me. Personally I've never sold fanart, because it is essentially infringing on other companies copyrights. I know many artists do sell fanart, but that's their business. I'm not stupid, and I know people steal art all the time, but that doesn't make it right.

Another issue is credit. Imagine in some far fetched reality that someone at Marvel sees this design and says "hey, whoever designed this has some creative chops. Maybe we can bring him on board for some freelance work." That would be a dream of mine. But now imagine someone else gets that opportunity using my design. Also imagine all the missed page views I am getting. The youtube video has 225k views, but none of those viewers know that I designed the costume. That's 225k missed opportunities for recognition, which in today's world is more valuable than the money they are making from selling the spandex.

At the very least I'd like credit and links back to here on herotimes.com. I appreciate CrazyFranky giving me credit on his site, but I would have like to have been notified that this was happening from them instead of you.

Hopefully this can be resolved. Thanks for alerting me to this!

I hope it all works out.  We artists have to stick together and stand up for each other.

Glad to hear it.  Glad I could help.  Its hard to get your stuff out there and sometimes people think since its "only" art they can take advantage.  Get our art for free, or use it without even consulting.

the third one is the best IMO, give it a bit of blue leggings and red boots like the one next to it and it's perfect

My favorite one is the 2nd costume. The only thing that I personally think would make it better if the pants and boots had webbing on it.

The cosplay of this shows that tactical pouches reminiscent of Bucky's cap works. Going in that direction it may work to give him lighter boots.

The costume is amazing! Honestly have to love all four but I want ask, could you make another one but with slightly more armour? We'be seen that captain America wears alittle armour so why not captain Spider-Man? Especially seeing as he'll be leading team of avengers, and holding up the dutys of spider man and captain America.

Hey Tloessy.  Someone had used this picture on Instagram but didn't credit you.  I loved it so much that I ended up making the costume in real life: imgur.com/gallery/OgBp4 I credited you for the original concept.  Great work!

I like the whole concept and am drawn to #1 & #3. I like the idea, tho Reminds me of the Amalgam story line, sort of, with Marvel/DC, years ago.

WOW!  I love this, and it could just be that Peter (shown in Avenging Spider-Man to be a HUGE Captain America fan) dresses up as Captain America or becomes Captain America in his absence for a short time.  I love it.  Awesome.
