View Full Version : Props for Italy

01-25-2011, 04:28 PM
Hello eveyone!

I was thinking of a prop I could use for Italy that would make me unique from all the other hundred Italys in the con I go to. I don't really want to carry a flag because all the hassel they can be (dropping them, carrying them, etc).

I thought of making a "comic-bubble looking" sign with something witty on it...but I don't want it to just say "paaaasta". :waaaah:

Any suggestions for me?
Any would be appreciated!

i think the white flag is hilarious and that's a small prop you could carry around (just make a smaller one)

Like what benihime said, a small white flag and write on it "I surrender" or something. It would also be cool if you carried around a plush tomato or a boot like in the Hetalia opening and you could also do a cool pose with that.

A Box of Uncooked pasta making kit. They would have the Pasta Sauce and noodles.

A plastic pasta dish from a toy kitchen set, or something similar? I've even seen some ladies making crocheted spaghetti before! (:

I was thinking of a big white flag to wave around (Bonus if you know any colourguard skills) Or if white flag is too plain for your taste, you can always go for a chibi Italy doodle on the flag, it will be adorable >>

Perhaps you can try making a dropped pasta for Italy to bring around (Since he loves pasta & he is such a klutz XXXD) Here's a tutorial from Art Attack >>
(After opening the page, scroll down to the Dropped Dinner tutorial & click it, beneath the tutorial there's a picture of spaghetti with toast, you can always alter it to pasta on plate)

As for the comic bubble, hmm, what about "Looking for Fairy Tomato? *insert a tomato doodle*" XXXXD

Good luck on your Italy~! *winks*

I was also thinking of "mass producing" white flags, like making around 50 small white flags the size of your palm, and giving it to every Germany I see! I thought that would be cute. But I don't like the idea of lugging them around all over the con with me...><;;

All your Ideas are awesome so far! I'll try them for sure!

White flags sound good, you could carry a slice of piza around if you don't want to do pasta, might be easier actually.

And if you wanted to do the speech bubble you could have Veveveveveve writen inside

My daughter has 2 props for her N Italy cosplay - the white flag & a slice of pizza.

The pizza my daughter is holding is made with clay.

Jessica (the girl in the pic not holding a prop) had a bowl of pasta at AnimeFest last year I think.

We're planning a new prop, but it's super secret!

I'd also suggest white flags, or maybe something with pasta ^^;

My friend was Chibitalia at a con last year, and carried around a pizza box she'd customised for her cosplay...though it was a tad bulky to have to carry.

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2837001/ - PASTAAAA! I made this out of Model Magic clay and paint - it's held up fairly well, but one of the meatballs keeps falling off.

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2391253/ - the trademark white flag

http://www.cosplay.com/photo/2379918/ - this happened during a cosplay chess game. Not something I'd do for the character normally, but since we're talking Italy props I had to share. ^^

I knew it was someone at AF that had the bowl of pasta! I just couldn't remember who it was.

"Make pasta, not war!" :D

02-02-2011, 05:46 PM
Oh! You could bring a bag of uncooked pasta and replaced the label with one that says "Emergency Pasta" :D

At FanimeCon (either 2009 or 2010 ) there was an italy who had a white flag that was really accurate to the one in the anime, with the japanese writing for "Italy surrenders" on it and everything. I'd never seen something like it before.

My friend is going to be cosplaying Italy soon and we though that we should make a giant fork and tie a whit flag to it. XD

I would use a tomato.

As a suggestion what I'm doing for my Italy cosplay is carrying around a Germouser Plushie and I also have a flag scarf I crocheted... The Germouser one can easily be done with a black cat plushie and then just make a german flag ribbon.
