Hetalia: Axis Powers
Last Updated: 10-17-2010
When I first decided to cosplay England it was before the anime came out, so the colour choices for his hair, tie, accessories etc. were all inspired by the manga and artwork. Hence the darker shade of blonde....and not great big black lines drawn on for eyebrows. XD
As for the uniform...it's not accurate to Englands' own, I know. It's because....I love uniforms. *_*
I really do. So the thought if being able to wear one for a legitimate cosplay was too much for me to resist. I was able to procure a vintage British army officer uniform at a charity auction that, despite being made for a male shape, actually doesn't fit me too badly. I stripped off as much of the insignia as I could and changed the buttons to brassier, plain ones. Some of the stripes and colours had to remain,partly because they'd damage the suit too much to be taken off, but also because....I like them lots! <3
England in his military gear has sort of become my default cosplay now.
Also, if you have time to watch some silly nonsense, I have my 'Ask England' videos up on Youtube. It's nothing flashy; England quite simply answers questions posed to him by...well. Anyone, really. If you fancy seeing him ramble and squirm, please do pop by; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah8Fp7fh9_0&feature=related (That's the latest one, but you can reach all the others, right the way back to the promo, from there.)
