Back in November-ish I got roped into a Hetalia group for a convention in May. I couldn't miss out on an opportunity to wear a German uniform (I love those uniforms so much).

Currently working on the pants mock-up. Yay poof-pants!
How are you making them poof? I wasn't gonna add it to my pants, but I do wanna have the option open.

Just finished up the second-to-last bit of (the other) Korea and had to come here to flail about it. Forgive me. I can't wait to wear her.

I've come in search for reference pictures, aru. xD
Does anyone by any chance know were to go or if anyone has one; a good reference of the uniforms America and UK wore durring the War for Independence from Britian? I was thinking if there are no actual colour references we would have to actually do research and see how the uniforms looked back then and then go from there. xD

I'm also looking for a good reference of Chibitalia. xD; Either Anime or Manga but I'm more partial to the manga outfit personally. I've found plenty for the manga outfit but I'm not sure of the colours on the outfit. xD So any help would be much apperciated.

And just because.. Progress pictures of my UK costume. 8D;

I pretty much just drew a curve on the fabric; I'm trying to strike a decent balance between historical accuracy and Hetalia-accuracy. So they don't have crazy poof, but they're poofier than they were in WWII.

EDIT - Mr Despair - I found different coloured drawings from Himaruya when I was perusing his blog archives, and I'm pretty sure Chibitalia's outfit is all-white.

And so far your UK is win.

Here's the official color scheme by Hidekaz for the Revolutionary War uniforms:

And here's a few I had of colored Chibitalia;

Oh man, just got introduced to Hetalia over Katsucon weekend (I had a China in my room who kept saying "Aru" X3) and... MUST COSPLAY RUSSIA.

Or mini Russia as it were. I might make a Bloody Sunday variant just for effect (That was one of my favorite strips T_________T)

My friend is doing Canada's red hoodie with a Canadian flag on the front. All she had to do was get a red hoodie and iron-on the flag.

I cosplayed England over Katsucon weekend (uniform version), and my friend's roped me into being her Red Coat England (to her Revolutionary America). Eventually I want to cosplay Italy in all his various outfits, including Chibitalia.
[that strip just about broke my heart it was so adorable! But then the more I read of Hetalia, the more I realized who HRE 'grew up' to be.]

My future America was also my Canada this past weekend as well, ^^

It's from the comic.

Everyone assumes the hoodie is red and that the sketchy design behind his bear is the Canadian flag, since sort of like the 50 on America's jacket, Hidekaz doesn't draw it in every panel.

I've seen cosplayers do both jeans and khakis with it.

And I already know I'm going to burn up in my America cosplay. A shirt, a uniform jacket and a bomber jacket? Oh yeah, I'll be hot. XD

Thank you both for the help! Me and my America were looking for actual Hetalia references for those outfits. ^_^

As for Chibitalia, I'm still not so sure about where to start but those pictures do help. Thankies. ^-^
