I'm looking for the male blue plaid fabric. I am having difficulty finding anything remotely similar. It doesn't matter to me if it's anime or game version similarities. Does anyone have suggestions or links they can link me to?

Bumping because I would also like an answer to this. Also where I could get the patch.

Here's some references to anyone who's curious what they're talking about: http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20090818172541/hetalia/images/d/d7/Gakuendan2.jpg

Damn, I'm looking for the fabric but the only things that come close are napkins.

Shana05, these people: http://community.livejournal.com/hetalia/3907356.html did a custom order to get their patches, perhaps you could do the same?

But there was also this forum about the patches: http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?p=3672619 Idk if you've seen it or not.

Here's another patch location: http://rogueymu.deviantart.com/art/Gakuen-Hetalia-Scroll-Patch-152391680?q=favby:gakuenhetalia/39409250&qo=1

I'll keep looking for the plaid!

For the patch, you can have someone custom make it. I see a bunch of those commissioners in the marketplace.

As for the fabric... thirded.

I've been looking for weeks now and not having any luck. Nothing is really close to the actual plaid's coloring.

On the other hand, seems most Gakuen cosplayers pictures I've found have the same problem so if I have to settle I'll be in good company. ^^

I keep seeing flannel pajama pants in the right color. I'm highly tempted.

Your best chance would be to go to Joannes right this second and look in the clearance. My friend and I were there today and found the most perfect plaid in the most perfect fabric (and it was also on sale for $2 a yard :D ). The only problem is because it is on clearance it may no longer be in the store or there may not be enough of it. We lucked out and had just enough. Thats the best advice I can give right now for finding it.

There are a few websites floating around where you can make your own plaid. I'm betting that this gets expensive along with the fact that most of them are based in Scotland and most of us don't live in Scotland. Here's one of the websites I was able to find.

Hope that helps and good luck on the hunt.

I think I'm going to use this fabric (http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?pageName=search&flag=true&PRODID=zprd_10217263a) for the pants. Not exact but it's close enough for my standards.

You're in good company. I went and bought the same material. ^^

Seems closest to anything I've found.

If you don't mind going to hancock fabrics then I think that could be a suitable fabric for the pants...

Sadly, that fabric is seasonal.

The bottom one (the bluer) is that fabric, which my friend used. Which ended up like this: http://kisshulover1.deviantart.com/art/Poor-Puppy-198111082?q=favby:patriot-sheep/41786363&qo=8 (silly picture, but you get the point).

Since that fabric is seasonal, though, we're going to use this http://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/catalog_itemdetail.aspx?ItmID=3316 for the pants. Thats the fabric on that picture up thar, except the TOP fabric (used in the uniform skirt).

So I think it works out nicely, as with the reference pictures... the plaid changes XD;;

Heyyy, I know that Finland. But I also get around, I guess...?

Whatever you do, if you're doing it in a group, make sure everybody in the group gets the same fabric. Otherwise it will not be the right effect. For my group, I don't live near a joann's, which is where the fabric we're using comes from, so I'm probably going to ask somebody else in the group who has already bought the fabric to pick some up and I'll pay them for it plus shipping.

She gets around too XD;; I mentioned her in one of my chatrooms, and everyone was like "FINNY!?!?! I LOVE HERRRRR..." and i was like "AISUGAKJHFGA STOP BEING POPULAR, VIGGO." Its kind of funny how many people know her. *is hosting a Hetalia gathering with her this month*

Yeah, we all wanted the same fabric Finland used for her pants, so we'd all match. But sadly, that fabric is seasonal so we can't. Instead, we're all using that other fabric, and then Finland would be the odd one out. But maybe she'll make herself a pair to match, i don't know (we'll see what she thinks).
