I'm trying to pull together a Dark Canada-esque cosplay (possibly for Anime North 2011...)

I've seen some other 'dark' styled designs (I don't think I've ever seen a Dark Hetalia cosplay though) but only for a few of the asian nations.

like...

and

Basically, I want to make Dark Canada with a solider look to it, showing Canada's military might with the dark side of Hetalia 9which is all the war and bloodshed, death ect.)

I hope for the costume to be bargan bought through places like Value Village and goodwill.

And ideas for the following would be awesome 8D

-binding (just a little, I have around a C)
-Styles

Hm... I admit, I really am not an expert on binding (my binding jobs are usually fail) but, for Dark Canada, I think you could just play off of what you've found... maybe design a black version of his usual "uniform: http://www.ahappydeal.com/bookpic/Hetalia-Canada-Matthew-Cosplay-Costume-G-29344.jpg would do, along with a hat to cast a shadow over the eyes (since Dark Japan seems to do this a lot.)

Another possibility is doing a color inversion of the mountie uniform jacket, but keeping the same color in the pants: http://s3prod.weheartit.netdna-cdn.com/images/3468315/canasan_thumb.jpg?1282330698

And, if that doesn't work out, you could always research real-life Canadian uniforms and seeing what you can find for ideas.
Whatever you do, just be sure to sketch out and color a design on paper first.

Hope that helped!

You also can use red nail polish as blood splatters.

Though I think what you'll have to do is adjust how you act, act closer to belarus than Canada

Hope to see you at Anime North!
