Description
England = favourite character from APH, from the beginning.

Made the outfit to take part in the Hetalia 5-part skit/performance at the expo masquerade on Saturday! I was the England on-stage then, and was the only one in that set group.

The trousers were bought from Primark, the boots I already owned, the white shirt is Uniqlo, the tie had to be ordered online since it was difficult to find dark green and plain- sadly it's a silk tie. Leather gloves are from eBay; they're too big. They were cheap. :/ The wig, again, is from Amphigory, and was expensive, but not worth it- the texture's rough (good for England, I suppose?) and it's obviously too short. Not that I cared at the time. OTL The Sam Browne strap was made from a wider belt, and attaches to the main belt, Primark, men's section. I didn't own a binder at the time either. OTL

The jacket was made entirely from scratch, no patterns- in a lighter shade, before I dyed the jacket after sewing it by hand using some existing jackets as structure reference. Incredibly amateur and hit-n-miss, but it did the trick for the one time I wore it...

It's still in one piece, and I really enjoyed cosplaying England-- not that I think it'll ever happen again...!

IT WAS SO HOT TO WEAR IN MAY, BTW.
