France (Francis Bonnefoy)

Hetalia: Axis Powers

Description

My final hetalia cosplay ended up being a major revamp of my first one.

I really wanted to try a historical replica of the costume France wears in the series. His flashy blue uniform is actually an artillery uniform from 1914.

Lots to say about this costume, the packs and bags were all handsewn except for the ivory one, which was purchased from an army store, the jacket's infantry number is sewn onto the collar of the jacket (in this case 23).

The beard is crepe wool applied with spirit gum.

And the gun was a standard artillery rifle used in the first years of the war, it was made from foam, metal, wood and sculpy.

All of the accessories were created to be as accurate as possible. I think the only thing I was missing in the end was a canteen for the other hip.

spiker7786 Hello! I just wanted to say what a beautiful costume! It is really exciting to see a historically replicated Hetalia uniform! I think you did a wonderful job putting this together and your rifle is incredibly convincing! I was so surprised when I read that you hand made it! Over all, just wonderful. :) I would love to see some more colour pictures of it, like in your icon, too!
