Alfred F. Jones / America

Hetalia: Axis Powers

Last Updated: 09-13-2011


Alfred is the first character that I've cosplayed out of sheer love of his personality and character. Usually I pick characters purely by their outfits *coughSethNightlord&CielPhantomhive*. But this time, I realized I LOVE America. He's such a bro. I've never matched up with a character this easily or this well before (the only thing is that he loves burgers and I'm vegetarian...:D). And I'm so excited. He's my favorite, although he's a bit stupid, but hey! so am I. I really look forward to doing other versions of him as well.

Dog Tags///
By far my favorite part of the costume. They say "Alfred F. Jones / 07-04-1776 / America" on them. I wear them all the time now. They are so legit.

The Wig///
It is a Cher in 24b from amphigory. I love it. I teased a part into it and it styles really nicely. Its longer than the Roni, which everyone recommended, I like the Cher more. The ahoge is sometimes a wire covered in hair, sometimes just the hair gel'd up. Sometimes the wire doesn't cooperate so I end up taking it out and just styling the wig itself.

The boots///
Super comfy knee-high rainboots from TJMax. They were only 20 bucks and they weren't too shiny like most rain boots. They have a zipper in the back and keep my feet toasty, which is not always a good thing... Unfortunately, I couldn't get them off after only wearing them for two hours, so they're now for sale. :( Time to find new boots.

Glasses///
I bought a cheap pair of wire glasses, punched the lenses out, and painted them black. I didn't keep the lenses because they were too strong for me and they cause glare.

Military Uniform and Bomber Jacket///
Bought offline, very well made though. I love it. The dress shirt is mine, as well as the tie. Pants were hemmed by me, as well as the sleeves on the leather jacket. I decided not to put the "50" on the back. I don't particularly like it, but I've devised a way to put a "50" on it temporarily if I need it.

Flags///
No Hetalia cosplayer is complete without a flag right? Of course not. I have a modern American Flag, a Betsy Ross 13-star flag, and a Grand Union flag. I hope to get a pole sometime. Perhaps one that collapses.

Gun///
Still looking...

Aviator Goggles///
Love them! Love them so much.

Tony///
Working on that!

The only cons of this cosplay I'd have to say are: wearing military garb out in public for photoshoots is really awkward-- especially in a small, close-minded town like mine. The other con is FOUR LAYERS! Undershirt, dress shirt, jacket and bomber jacket!? What were you thinking Alfred? ITS SO BLOODY HOT wearing all that!
