This has probably been answered but I couldn't find the topic.
I have been wanting to cosplay as Prussia and England. I am also going to add in Akira
from the BL game, Togainu no Chi. I think I will get more results in the Hetalia thread because the uniform Akira wears is similar to what many of the characters in Hetalia wears.
Please excuse me if I say something wrong. It has been a while since I last took a history class. Prussia's uniform has the iron cross on the tie area. Someone I know who cosplayed as Prussia was asked to take it off because it was offensive. Akira's uniform resembles a nazi uniform, though thankfully it does not have any symbols. I did not know his uniform resembled a nazi uniform until someone told me. The last thing I want to do is offend anyone with what I am cosplaying.
Are their rules with military costumes? I will not be carrying a flag. I don't want to get in trouble and offend anyone for what I am wearing. Thank you.
