Where is a good place to buy some Hetalia: Axis Powers costumes/wigs? I want to get Antonio(Spain) who can help me! I found some sites but I want to see if there are places that I don't know about! Thanks!

Well, what outfit are you looking at? He has several. There's the military uniform, the business one seen in the World Meeting, the cooking one seen in a few episodes, War of Austrian Succession, and a casual outfit seen in all the Boss Spain strips. The last one can be easily put together with a Ren Faire tunic and pair of loose pants. Just need to either add buttonholes to the shirt for a red ribbon, or get a tunic that has them already.

I think the military one. Where could I get just the top of the military uniform(shirt) I have khaki pants that could probably go with it and would save me some money :)

Go to the thrift store and look at the military uniform section, they should have some white tan long sleeved tops.(with the pockets)
As for the wig, I highly recommend this one (http://cgi.ebay.com/Axis-Powers-Hetalia-Spain-Cosplay-Wig-Dark-Brown_W0QQitemZ220563625036QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_D efaultDomain_0?hash=item335a9dd44c). (Bought from this seller before, srsly. awesome. x3)

For the wig, I'm planning on using Cosworx's Scruffy (I'm also working on a Spain cosplay). I used Scruffy for America and it fit just the way I wanted it to without any styling...then again I also have a big head. Hope that helps!
And a question of my own. What do people think would work better for Tonio's sock/leg wraps? A pair of white knee/athletic socks or sports wrap? Currently I'm leaning towards socks...

I used this one: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cosplayland-Hetalia-Spain-Brown-Short/dp/B003L98TCI/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&s=drugstore&qid=1279629374&sr=8-16
Though I still haven't styled it quite right lol.

I wouldn’t use sports wraps/ACE bandages, your leg will go numb in minutes, long socks pulled over your trousers would work ok, but if you want the best look, you will have to buy a pair of puttees, try sites that sell uniforms for reenactors, in particular WW1 reenactors. Or you could make them yourself, but you would need 9 feet of wool. (Wool works best, sticks to itself a bit.)

Alright thanks! I think I'm going to end up modifying some socks. I've got this explosion of white linen fabric that I have no use for and I may turn it into a giant strips so as to get the look of the puttees with the on/off ease of socks. We'll see how this turns out... :)
