Seven Years' War (ladyversion)
Hetalia: Axis Powers
Last Updated: 08-18-2010
Prussia isn't my favourite character but it is enjoyable to dress up and be obnoxious. I like all the Seven Year's War/Austrian Succession costumes, and may do others at some point; this is the less fancy outfit, which I preferred. Cutaway frock coats get my vote.
Oh, I made it Gurl!Prussia 'cos I make a dreadful and unconvincing man.
This blouse is one I had anyway, one of my lolita designs (an unfrilly one) which features in a couple of other costumes. If I like part of a costume I want to make it as I would 'real clothes', so it can be used whenever. It is plain white poplin with narrow guipure lace. Waistcoat is embroidered linen with lovely tinytiny pearl buttons. Frock coat is probably the only blue denim thing I own; denim is useful but I don't often like the colour and loathe jeans, so. I dyed it so it was more of an actual Prussia blue. Comes with masses of guipure and Valenciennes lace and the cuff buttons are silver metal with a scrolly design. I had a trews crisis at last minute, so these aren't perfect (they're totally not my little brother's cast-off Quiksilver trews, nope) and I may make some improved ones in future because I am sure to use this costume again. Hat was my first attempt at blocked felt, it was not a disaster but my improvised block was a little small. It is shellacked wool felt with black, pink and gold Schiffli lace edging and a crocheted rose pin. Gilbird is made of felt (and used to be a lemon, incidentally), with a clip for feet so he can perch. Boots are my all-purpose Docs; gloves are vintage Edwardian bridal white kid. Cravat is something I needed for general life and also used in my SO's Austria cosplay (which I will be stealing), made of Cluny and Valenciennes lace. Lastly, the eyeball... I like glass eyes and have them in several different colours, made into hair clips etc. This is my grey one, on a brooch with cotton eyelet and guipure lace frill. Because Prussia is absolutely the type to wear a decorative eyeball, no?
