The nomad version of Hungary from APH.
I'm a big fan of the Hetalia manga and anime. I think I was among the first Hungarian fans. ^^ (the manga is now available in Hungarian, yeaaah! :D)
Since I live in Hungary it was obvious that I should cosplay her, Erzsébet Héderváry. I really like the uniforms but when I saw Hungary-chan's nomad outfit... ohh, it was love at first sight! *.*
I added an extra bow to the costume because it suits our nation well. :) I love my cloak - it was beautiful in the wind! The two armour pieces are made of craftfoam and cardboard. The sword is from polystyrene and paper mache. The wolf-teeth necklace is from special beads that I refined and painted. This is one of my favourite costumes. ^^
Oh, I almost forgot!
In the 10th century there were many Hungarian raids. Most European nations were praying for mercy:
"Sagittis hungarorum libera nos Domine" - "Lord save us from the arrows of Hungarians".
Here is the Hungarian version as well:
"A magyarok nyilaitól ments meg, Uram, minket!"
