Hello, cosplay.com!

A friend and I are in the process of planning a nostagic/patriotic type photoshoot with some historical-themed Hetalia costumes (Army Air Corps and Royal Air Force), and while we've located some fantastic places in the area with vintage aircraft, we're also looking for some other general areas that might also suit our purposes.

We're sort of going for that whole optomistic nostalgia feel, and maybe a few nods to some of the US and UK propoganda posters at the time.

Any ideas or thoughts?

Hmm...the only places that come to mind are the Cavanaugh Flight Museum (http://www.cavanaughflightmuseum.com/index.html) and the Vintage Flying Museum (http://www.vintageflyingmuseum.org/). Both are on the outskirts of airports (Addison Airport and Meacham International Airport). The Cavanaugh has an art collection as well as aircraft. The last time I went (granted this was maybe 5-6 years ago) they had a series of propaganda posters from the U.S. during WWII. On the off chance you know someone with their own plane, the Dallas Air Park (http://www.dallasairpark.com/index.html) with it's open field and aged buildings could make for an interesting atmosphere. I've always thought that could be a great place for photos for something! but I don't know anyone with a plane there to get in with safe access. lol

I want to say you may want to check out the downtown squares of small towns in your area. I know in Denton I would recommend Beth Marie's since the inside is meant to look like a 50's Ice cream parlour or the Oak Cliff area in Dallas since there are parts of the shopping area that remind me of a old town feel to the place.

Thanks, guys! We're looking to do this after...well, after we get rain in these here parts, and the weather is not just HOT HOT HOT. I'll run these places over my partner for her input!
