Description
My friend Sian was being America so I decided to pick Austria - Austria's very musical and I was planning to bring my old violin to pose with. I forgot it!! Next con...


Coat was a £3.99 size 12 from a charity shop taken in at the back and underarms. The sleeves were already a little short so had to be careful during the goosestepping shots to make sure it didn't ride up. The coat's a bit dark, really - I'll be on the lookout for a suitable alternative. I should've also put some tails in the back and worn a belt because I looked like a total beanpole in it.

I tried to make Austria's rimless glasses and failed horribly - I had an old pair but the frames turned out to be resistant to scissors, craft knives and hacksaws!! Not to mention that supergluing the lenses in was a totally bad idea - it burrrrrned my eyes D: So I gave up on those and used one of my newer darker frames. Again, I'll be remaking for the next con. Also skimped on the shoes, I had no time to get proper jackboots so I made do with my hiking ones - which were muddy and I forgot to clean them. AS IF AUSTRIA WOULD EVER BE SEEN IN DIRTY BOOTS :O

All in all, not my best costume, although I was proud of being able to get the spike on the wig - that was a hot glue job. Would like to rewear for Minami and make a little better!
