Hetalia: Axis Powers
DescriptionWhy I cosplayed it: I don't know too too much about hetalia, but I like it, and my friend showed me a character who looked like me, and I looked at her school outfit and thought, I have most of her clothes. I could cosplay her! :D
How costume was made: The skirt (also used for Maka from Soul Eater) is from Wet Seal, the sweater is from Goodwill and I later used it for Duelist Kingdom Bakura, so the school outfit is retired. I think I borrowed the tie from a friend!
The blue dress is from Goodwill. I don't have it anymore, so this version is retired too, for now.
Worn to: Hetalia Day 2010 (school outfit); Japanfest 2015 (blue dress)
Fun times: Hetalia day was EPIC. Three people knew who I was and screamed "seychelles!" and glomped me as soon as I got out of the car. It was awesome. And my friends were dressed up too, as Ukraine, Belarus, England, Lithuania, and really casual Estonia... because finding that sweater was a pain in the arse and then they didn't have it in stock anywhere near here...
Though that skirt made me look like a ho a little bit. Good thing for Maka, it'll be paired with a trenchcoat and you won't see it from the back.
