Germany (Ludwig Beilschmidt)
Hetalia: Axis Powers
DescriptionGermany is easily my favorite character from Hetalia and one that has grown really close to me during 2016. He means a LOT to me as a character and it warms my heart to know that he is one of the more mature, well-made and multi-layered characters in the series, in my opinion. I can't help but love him to pieces and laugh my ass off to his ironic/sadistic sense of humour. I'm also very happy that I gave the Hetalia anime a try back in 2014, despite disliking the fandom.
Oh and I had the uniform made -on purpose- with a green fabric tilting a bit towards brown, as I wanted to go for a more authentic feel/look to the uniform. Yeah, I have a big interest in history and if I have a piece of clothing etc. that feels/is historically more accurate, I get an unexplainable cool "omph!"-feel from it.
Costume is made by my good friend Hasakitsuki's mother. The boots, gloves, shirt and Iron Cross necklace are all bought. The belt is an authentic WW2 German army surplus belt that I bought from varusteleka.com.
I have cosplayed Germany at following cons:
2016 - Tracon 11, Finland
2016 - Kitacon 8, Finland
