Oh, yes! PLEASE be the Hetalia fan who knows, loves, and understands history rather than the one who wears the uniform just because it looks good. A Hetalia fan who knows the story (and implications) of a uniform is always a better Hetalia fan IMHO.

And don't think you CAN'T wear uniforms to a convention. Uniforms are awesome, but without a deep knowledge of WHAT you're wearing and an understanding of the consequences of wearing it, you shouldn't even start the project.

People loved our uniforms at ACEN. Granted, 90% of the con thought we were from Hetalia, but I knew that would happen going in. I accept and go on instead of crying over the ignorance or simple mistakes of others.
