I think the scruffy wig from cosworx would do fine. You may need to trim it, it seems a little long, but it also differs depending on each person. He has such normal hair you could probably even look in your local wig shops for a wig. :3

Thanks,

Check out your local thrift stores, salvation army, goodwill type places. I've found several at all of those places. It also wouldn't hurt to look at Surplus stores, there is one here in MA that sells leather jackets by the pound and the end up being super cheap. They can be a little more expensive at the surplus store though, so shop around before you buy.

If you're looking to go with a new jacket, check places like Kohls, Target, and TJMax: sometimes you can get great deals.

(If you're in the MA area, hit the Garmet District in Cambridge: I got my America's jacket there for $10- full leather and in good shape.) Good luck.

meepstio - I second Tanoshii's statement about the Scruffy - I have one and it's definitely really long for Spain, but careful styling would get it into shape - be careful I mean careful: it's a thin wig. Another choice is searching short brown wigs on ebay and finding one that fits your fancy.

Tanoshii - As for your question about Su-san, I think with some straightening/styling, the Cosworx Roni or Olivia could work, but then again, Su-san's hair is slightly complicated for a wig (easy to draw, though! XD). I'm no expert on wigs, but this one is another suggestion. Good luck on your costume ^^

Mmm, I've recently become rather obsessed with Hetalia and will hopefully have many cosplays to come. <3

Will be cosplaying Finland (Military w/ Christmas cape & bag) to AUSA this weekend. :3 Spreading candy gifts to fellow Hetalia cosplayers I come across.

Bloody hell, that's a damn good price!! That place wouldn't happen to have a website would it?

Any other America cosplayer's got their jackets from like Kohl's or whatever and remember the name of it?

Thanks!

EDIT: So, I found and checked out the site for the Garment District, and its confusing or maybe I'm missing something. But, it doesn't I can order actual clothing from the site. So, that is a dead end unfortunately.

meepstio - Raito would probably work for Spain if you styled it correctly (fracking aph and their fracking difficult boy cuts XD). I, personally, don't like cosworx because after i tried to tame my scruffy with hot water it got reeeally frizzy. i don't know if it was me or if it was the fiber, but i don't want to risk it happening to another cosworx wig.

Actually, guys, I'm good 2 go here. I just found and bought one on eBay for under 50 bucks with a slight inaccuracy that I am able to live with (lining is brown and not tan/white).

But thanks anyway!!!
