View Full Version : APH Germania cosplay
07-08-2010, 02:04 PM
hey I have a con to go to this weekend and now my hubby tells me he's all depressed because he doesn't have a Hetalia cosplay to wear while I am in my hetalai cosplay. He says he either wants to be Germany or Germania. I know I can't get a germany cosplay done in time, but Germania I might be able to. I am looking for tips to help me in my less then 48 hours quest to make a fairly good Germania cosplay on a budget.

Boots, I'd look at Payless or somewhere. Cape, simple piece of cloth sewn onto the shoulders. sorry if this doesn't help.

I hope you happen to have the appropriate wig lying around.
I'd advise Germania, based on the picture, although it really will have to be a case of getting lucky and finding things in local shops or altering clothes you already have.

Yeah I'm going to head down to the costume store today. I need to buy buttons for my Switzerland cosplay today to since a couple popped off at the last con I went to (less then 2 weeks ago) The shop I go to has fairly good wigs as well as costumes for a good price. I'm going to see if I can maybe find like a Lord of the Rings costumes and use that in some way.
