Help Me Visit Sick Kids as Real Life Super Heroes

A campaign to bring authentic super heroes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Money raised after the funds for the costumes will go to trinkets and gifts to give the kids to remember their visit!

My name is James Weeks. I am a huge geek, bit of a cosplayer, and a father of two.  Every year I dress up as Captain America for the kids in our area when I take the kids trick or treating. As I saw the reactions of the kids and realized what kind of impact this had, it occurred to me that there was a way that I could really be a super hero.


I am raising funds for professional costumes which I can then wear when visiting children with cancer and other various life-threatening diseases in hospitals in and around northern California. I will be visiting with the children and reading them stories, amongst other activities.

I can't stress enough how much of a difference this would make. Any glimmer of hope is a shining beacon for these children. 

I've done my best to come up with great rewards which will still allow me to pull enough together for the costumes. I hope you like them. I will even be offering appearances for birthday parties and events for some perks.

Photos and videos of the visits will be posted on my website and can be accessed by donors.

I tried to come up with the best possible rewards that would allow for a great keepsake and reminder of your contribution, as well as items that would still allow us to raise funds. I hope you like them. I've even thrown in some special appearances for birthdays/events on the rewards to the right.



For every stretch goal hit, I will be adding another costume to the mix. My hope is that in the long run, kids might be able to make requests on who they would like to meet. This also gives me the ability to change things up and not rinse and repeat with the same character every time.

All costumes are Hollywood-grade replicas are ready for purchase, made to exact measurements, and made to the finest detail. 

An Officially Licensed Movie Replica meticulously designed as a screen-accurate leather suit.

Every feature as seen on film in Captain America: The First Avenger has been replicated in form-molded leather from the classic color-scheme to the aluminum accent emblems on the back, arms and forever iconic silver star emblazoned on our hero’s chest. Perfectly crafted gloves, boots, functional belt and detailed rigging complete this iconic battle-uniform that captures the retro 1940s Captian America: The First Avenger design.

In BATMAN BEGINS™ we’re introduced to the stunning ‘Pre Suit’ described as the Nomex Survival Suit for advanced infantry. 
Designed by Wayne Enterprises™and subsequently ‘borrowed’ by Bruce Wayne™, this visually striking Pre-Suit would then be transformed into the BATMAN BEGINS™ suit later seen all throughout the film. 

Special Features Include:
Kevlar inserts, tear resistant mesh, impact absorbing gel pack details and adjustable sections - setting a new standard in leather garment manufacturing. Designed with removable CE Body Armor, these leathers can also be worn as everyday wearable outerwear.

With its metallic leather finish, make no mistake...this is not a costume.

Each rounded segment, every chiseled and beveled edge perfectly replicates the look of the on-screen armor...while being fully functional. This one is sure to be a hit with the kids!

(with helmet and effects)

When the kids want to see Iron Man, they want to see the real thing, not someone in a nylon suit. This is a fully functional set of Iron Man armor complete with working lights in chest and hands.

Jack Sparrow is a fictional character and the lead protagonist in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series created by screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, portrayed by Johnny Depp.

Created by Yordeem, it doesn't get much better or more authentic than this.

The more we raise, the more than can go to additional costumes and gifts for the kids!  You never know who a child might request.
