If you can't find an actual cosplay that is accurate enough, you could see if there are any military surplus stores in your area or find one online. You should be able to find the jacket and the pants there. You just want to be careful about adding any real ranking insignia and such to a military jacket.
If the jacket needs any extra detail that you can't find, you could see if another friend could help you attach them or send the jacket into somewhere to get those added.
Depending on whether or not you want to include his hat, you could likely find one at a thrift store or a fashion store.

I hope that helps a bit, good luck dear.

Now that I've finished sewing fem!France, I think I'm going to pick up an abandoned project of mine since I have nothing else to sew right now. It's fem!America as a flapper. I made the dress following a tutorial on youtube but I didn't like how to came out. I later picked up a flapper dress pattern during a sale, just in case I ever wanted to give it another try. Basically it's going to be made of blue satin, have red and white fringe (to be the stripes) and sequin white star appliques.

Since the original dress was a simple rectangle strapless style, I'm going to take it apart and try to reuse that material. The pattern is of a sleeveless style rather than strapless.

If anyone is looking for boots. I found these, they're pirate boots but they're pretty plain so they'd work for as military. Just thought I'd share in case anyone was looking for some.

Is anyone working on Hetalia Day costumes right now? My city had 1 of the meetups this past weekend and I just finished enough of Turkey's Hetaween 11 costume (http://www.cosplay.com/photo/3444218/ if you have any suggestions to make it better, that'd be cool) to wear to the event. There's another one this week in the suburbs so I'm debating whether or not to do Cuba's bunny costume for that.

I've finally decided and I think i'll go with Cosplay fu's Gakuen hetalia female uni. It is more expensive, but since I already paid an arm and a leg for shipping on procosplay for Sailor Venus, I get free shipping here. I think maybe i'll put together Gakuen Belgium for Anime North.

Good choice! I got my Canada outfit from them! It'll take about a month to arrive, though. But man! The quality's great! At least, mine's was. Just thought I'd tell you that. heehee Check out my actual cosplay pics to see how good they are.

My flapper fem!America is nearly complete. I put the star appliques I had on there but I feel it needs more of them.

...sigh...I'm at yet another loss. I want to really set off this cosplay I'm doing for Katsucon, but...I need boots for it. So, does anyone have any suggestions for a decent pair of boots I can use for H.R.E.?

I'm not quite sure what your budget or shoe size is but http://www.ebay.com/itm/Faux-Leather...-/171157485546 these look pretty close. They're women's though and only go up to the equivalent to a male's size 8.

Price isn't really a concern to me, but I wear like...a 13 in mens' regular shoes, so I've no clue what that would be in womens boot sizing. I probably should've said that earlier. I'm smarteded.

You'd be between a 14-15 in womens' shoes, depending on the brand. You can check around ebay or amazon for knee high combat boots, those tend to be the closest to good Hetalia boots. I'll keep an eye out though, if I find any I'll let you know.
