Hello there~


I wanted to cosplay America, but I know my mom would instantly reject crossplaying. Sooo, I decided to make a girl America based on his normal outfit. Would that be okay with people or is genderbending frowned upon? D:

Hey, guys, I'm late to the party (as usual) and am a n00b to all things Hetalia. However, one of my close friends wants to cosplay it with me. So, I come here asking (since I can't sew worth shit) if there is any place (or person) you recommend buying a N.Italy costume from (Just to be sure, it's the protagonist Italy. Haven't got the North and South completely memorized yet). I would need the full costume, so outfit, wig, and all. Maybe not the boots, but...yeah.

Does anyone recommend some places where it's very, very cheap but not crap?

Well, there are official designs for FemAmerica as well as the other main characters. But I'm going to guess your mom might not like it either as the FemAmerica wears short shorts and exposed midriff.

Here's a pic of one FemAmerica I met at a cosplay picnic: http://i54.photobucket.com/albums/g9...0/DSCF0335.jpg

Like Shana05 said, the most commonly found one is the one with the skimpy clothing which your mum might also not approve of but there is also uniform variations seen in fanart sometimes like this: http://i27.tinypic.com/1oqe6p.jpg

I don't see any problem with genderbending. But you might want to go ahead and ask about the crossplay, I thought my parents wouldn't approve but they were really supportive

There's genderbending all over the place in Hetalia cosplay - I have designs for genderbent versions of the whole main cast's uniforms (And one day I will actually make them all!). There are even Official Designs (Although as previously mentioned, America's is very skimpy)

An idea might be to sketch up (Doesn't matter how bad your drawing skills are - use a stick figure base if you need to ^.^ That's what I did when I was first designing) what the regular version looks like, what the girl version looks like, and if you want a girl version of America's regular uniform too. Pick the version you genuinely like best. If you don't think your Mum will approve, you now have three sketches to show her what, exactly, you would be wearing and what you would NOT be wearing. Many Mums prefer dressing as a boy to dressing as a tart.

My Mum is also against crossplay, but that's because she wants me to dress up like a sparkly fairy princess. However, once we've ruled out the princesses, given the option of boys or bikinis, she goes with boys.

Oh, and would you happen know what kind of material to use for the hat?
So it looks like this type of fabric: http://www.thechestore.com/prodimage...he-Guevara.jpg
Your link doesn't work for me but I would try to match the jacket. Your best bet is probably to use a bottom weight fabric. A cotton twill would be good or, as the tutorial said, wool.

Try ebay for the wig, there are plenty of character wigs on there.

Here's a few,
http://cgi.ebay.com/COS57-APH-Axis-Powers-Hetalia-Cosplay-Wig-N-Italy-/220630562022?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&ha sh=item335e9b34e6

http://cgi.ebay.com/Hetalia-Axis-powers-Italy-cosplay-wig-/250661260963?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&ha sh=item3a5c934ea3

I'm not sure where you should get the costume from, most cosplay is quite expensive and good quality is hard to find. Most Italy costumes I've found sell for at least $60, not including the shipping.

@ MewAngel this is one of my favorite genderbend pics <3 Putting it as an attachment, I got it from danbooru and they don't exactly have the most family-friendly ads.

So, I finally decided what cosplay to make next from Hetalia - I picked Russia. Actually, I've been wanting to make him since I first got into the series...

Now, I know he has alternative outfits, not just the usual uniform he is wearing(I like it too, but... I want to make something different).
The only problem is that... well... I can't seem to find pictures of them anywhere! Anyone willing to give me a hand?

Also, my little sister is going to be a Belarus. ..she is taller than me and I'm the one usually clinging to her - that didn't work too well with me as Sweden and her as Denmark, and now it'll work a lot worse. Oh well.

Hi! Umm...I had a question about my Canada cosplay? Well, it's currently summer and in this part of the US it's pretty hot so sweatshirts are out of season. I can't find any ANYWHERE!

So, I was wondering, did any of you buy Canada's plain red sweatshirt online? And if so, where because I was trying to find one fairly cheap so...yeah!
