Nyotalia North Italy (Fem!Italy)
Hetalia: Axis Powers
DescriptionMy first official design cosplay from Hetalia/Nyotalia. I'm so happy about it!
This cosplay was fairly simple to be honest. The biggest problem was just getting the size right. I used a Vogue dress pattern as the base, and let's just say that Vogue doesn't appear to make patterns for short girls. The shoulders gave me so much trouble, and the sleeves still aren't completely right.
Also, there's some issues with the curl. I ran out of time to figure out how to get one to secure correctly to my own hair (since I used my own hair for this, except for the clip on ponytail), so I ended up bobby pinning in the curl for my Italy wig. Which is meant to hook onto the net of a wig... not hair. So I need to fix that.
But all that aside, I really love how this turned out. It's been so long since I've done such a feminine cosplay and I really enjoyed it.
This was also probably the shortest skirt I've ever worn. ^^; I had to be careful with sitting down and getting up.
But nonetheless, I did enjoy being so feminine in cosplay and I'm glad I did this. I didn't get the chance to get many pictures during the Saturday of EXP, but I got a few when I did a photoshoot with my friends at the fort in St. Augustine. Hopefully I'll get more in the not too distant future however~
I'm so happy with this and I really enjoyed being Fem!Italy. <3
