-Steve Rogers was raised by an Irish-catholic single mom in New York in the Depression era
-Steve Rogers grew up with a ton of disabilities
-Steve Rogers had an apartment in an incredibly gay section of New York
-Steve Rogers was a fine arts student
-Steve Rogers completely missed the Red Scare, McCarthyism, the Cold War, Vietnam, Korea, etc.
-Steve Rogers was written by two Jewish guys
-Steve Rogers had a gay best friend and did not consider his love to be any less valid or less real
-Steve Rogers worked with Japanese-American and black soldiers in, again, the Second World War
-Steve Rogers was just in a movie about how utterly fucked up the military-industrial complex is

Basically if your Steve Rogers is a conservative commie-hating uberChristian who would be at home in a racist southern church, you’re doing something wrong.

So recently as some of you may know I had to figure out how to make these green arm wraps in the picture below
image

I wanted them to be one piece so that they wouldn’t have to be adjusted throughout the day if parts decided to slip, especially since the original plan was to tuck the shirt into them. I searched the internet for a while but couldn’t find anything too helpful so I decided to make it up as I went along and took pictures so I could share in the event it worked. (It did)
This process should work for just about any wrap you want to create for instance things like this as well…

There isn’t much to it but I took a lot of pictures, so here we go.
First things first, you’ll want to wrap what ever part of your body you are making the wrap for in plastic wrap (we use this method frequently). Mine was just the forearm so it looked like this

image

Then wrap it again in tape, masking tape works nicely.
image

After that you want to draw where the seam is going to be and cut along it like so
image

image

Once you have the piece disconnected from your body you want to flatten it, I placed my piece under a pile of binders for about a day
image

While you are waiting you can get started on the strips of fabric you’ll be using later. Figure out how thick you want the bands to look and measure them out of the fabric you are using
image

Don”t forget to add a seam allowance, like I did. The length of the strips doesn’t really matter right now, as long as it’s long enough to wrap around your arm once you should be fine. I cut out 12 to be on the safe side. You should have something like this.

image

Once I had the strips cut out I folded the seam allowance over on all of them, this made it easier later when I attached them to the main piece.

image

You can then put the strips to the side and go back to the main pattern piece. For the forearm it should look something like this once flattened

image

You’ll want to clean up the edges with the plastic hanging off and then transfer the pattern piece onto a piece of paper, again making sure to add seam allowance around the edges.
image

Once you’ve traced around the whole thing you can cut it out and that will be the pattern for the main piece of your arm wrap. Use the pattern to cut out a piece in the fabric you are using and together with your straps your pieces should look like this.
image

You want to sew on the strips one at a time, starting from one end then making your way to the other. I started from the bottom. Pin the strip onto the main piece along the hem you already created like this
image

You then want to sew the strip down along the top and bottom edge. There will be fabric hanging off from the strip, you want your seam to stay in between the edges of the main piece. After that is sewn on cut off any extra material from the strip.
image

It should look something like this
image

Continue with the other strips. I attached mine diagonally for the most part. When I was done attaching my strips (I only used 6) this is what I had.
image

Sew your side seams together.
image

And then hem the top and bottom.
image

Viola! You should have an arm (body) wrap that you won’t have to wrap!

image

(I didn’t hem the top because I attached it directly to the shirt)
Also it should be noted stretch material should probably be used. 
Hope it helps someone! :)

Of course they know.

nice characters are good and important and strong

nice characters are not in any way inherently less interesting or complex or cool or badass than asshole characters

nice characters who go through hell and still remain good and kind and compassionate are so so strong

nice characters are not weak or boring or less badass, nice characters are awesome.
