Cosplay of the Day: Dad Cosplay is Best Cosplay


A tumblr user wanted to prove to their dad that he was cool enough to cosplay as a middle-aged dude. The answer? F yeah he is:

“Hello all, so this is my dad, and he’s planning on cosplaying as Rescue Captain America at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

Here’s the problem: He’s 53 and he thinks he might be too old to cosplay. In addition, he thinks he’s not buff/handsome enough to pull it off a Captain America costume. So even though he’s put a ton of work into his cosplay, he’s thinking about not taking any of it with us.

I’ve set out to prove him wrong, so tumblr, please help me show this retired Air Force officer that he makes a great Captain America!”

Check out more shots of the dadplay (err that sounds weird) below. It’s a legitimately good costume and it helps he’s a handsome dude!

    Very impressive. I don’t think my Dad would even know what a “Captain America” is…
