Austria

War of Austrian Succession

Hetalia: Axis Powers

Last Updated: 10-08-2011


I wanted to do more Hetalia cosplay, but I wanted to move away from the simpler default outfits and move to some of the more elaborate war outfits. I found images for the Austrian Succession and fell in love with Austria's design.

Pants are probably the simplest part of this whole outfit. Standard pants in white twill with a while lining (I think I used satin?).

The shirt was the next simplest part. It is white satin in a poet style. I used the shirt for a Howl cosplay and just modified it a little for Austria.

Jabot is white satin with white lace trim. The lavender rosette was twirled by hand and then glued to a pin back.

Vest is white twill lining in a sky blue satin, edged with gold bias tape. The gold rose buttons are purely decorative; the vest closes with large snaps. I had to do a lot of modification on the vest pattern since I am a very petite person and used a men's vest pattern. It was shortened and massive darts were added to give it more of a shape.

Tricorn is black felt and some light interfacing with gold bias tape trim. To give it a stiffer shape I added some starch to it. Feathers are ostrich and are glued to a pin. The lapis brooch came as it (and taken from a Ciel Phantomhive cosplay) with a ruffle of satin ribbon added.

I love my boots. I got them off eBay and they can either be cuffed or uncuffed at the top. I have wide calves and was afraid they wouldn't fit but they fit perfectly.
