A friend and I are considering cosplaying America and England respectively, but with a Steampunk style.

I'm fairly familiar with the style, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what sort of looks would be good for the two characters?

Any advice is much appreciated

Well, in Episode 26 of the anime (and in the webcomic's respective comic), America does wear goggles on his head with that aviator hat thingy. http://i692.photobucket.com/albums/vv287/Roccie/hathat.png So you could incorporate that if you wanted to.

As for England, I'd suggest looking for inspiration from his clothing in the colonial!America arc, or the few episodes with teenage America. Though, England is known for just wearing suits of all sorts, so that'd probably a good place to start.

Take a look at the Poker chips that came with the Art Book, http://www.facebook.com/liebackandthinkofEngland?ref=ts&sk=lf#!/album.php?aid=294319&id=76900043881
You could do something with those and do some more minor alerations.
Or if you wanted to be really over the top, do some research on America and England during the victorian era, both fashion and history, and baise something off that. Also maybe pick a theme, like America could be aviation and England could be...a gentleman?

Even though the sky pirate style is overdone in steampunk, a pirate theme really dose fit for England since he talks about it all the time. Possibly make him a more gentlemanly pirate, if there is such a thing.

I love that France design <3 A big part of that probably comes from the pants/shorts.
