Feliciano Vargas (North Italy)
Hetalia: Axis Powers
DescriptionA very simple costume, yet one of my favorites already. After watching the Chibitalia clip set in Venice and browsing through fanarts online, I got the idea to do a gondolier version of Veneziano.
Low and behold when it occured to me that Metrocon's convention center is by the water I started thinking that it would be a great place to do a gondolier outfit. Upon announcing that idea to my friends, one them got excited and told me that she had been wanting to do a gondolier version of Romano.
Thus the gondolier Italy brothers were born. :3 There was honestly no work really done on these costumes aside from replacing the ribbon on the hats to make them look 10 times better and much more accurate. Other than that it was all searching around online and buying two shirts and two hats. And my fratello and I already had our black slacks and black shoes.
Though simple, these costumes were wonderful to wear on the Sunday of the convention and I can see myself rewearing it again in the future for sure, especially on laid back days at cons.
It was really fun running around in the costumes with my friend and we got so many "You're so adorable!" and "That's so adorable~" XD It made me really happy. It's been a while since anyone has used the word 'adorable' to describe a cosplay I've done.
So though they didn't take much work, I love them anyway and I'm sure I'll be rewearing gondolier Veneziano again in the future. <3
