Costume Information

Description
I have wanted to do a Victorian England cosplay for a while now.
Been going through tons of Victorian references..
And I finally have an event I could wear this for.

In April, popsimgirl is hosting a Hetalia Masquerade~
I'm being England ^_^
Lmao. The conversation on this outfit was made of so much win, I simply can not back down from this now~
I'll be using that conversation as reference. XD And I have to make this epic, or it'll be a huge letdown. ;^;
So no pressure!

XD No idea what I'll do for my mask yet~ well I just had an awesome idea for it, but it might be too obvious as to who I am.
If the Victorian getup doesn't already make it obvious enough. xD

Eee~ cannae wait to start this :3 I'm gonna be sooo poor by the end of it though ;^;
#UPDATE: HOPING TO WEAR THIS FOR THE SUNDAY OF MCM EXPO MAY 2011!#

-----
According to said conversation, I need the following:
Top Hat.
Cane.
Monocle.
Bowler Hat. ( we go Winston Churchill here O.o )
A Pipe.
AND a Cigar.
...All at the same time. XDDD

Journal

The Masquerade~! (Posted 20th April 2011)

^^ Currently awaiting more photos, but i don't think I really got any good ones of this. So you'll have to wait for expo ;D
I'm attaching a photo with me force-feeding a scone to Prussia though ^_^

So, the weekend... what can I say? It was brilliant :'D I loved seeing everyone again! I think the hot weather got to a lot of us and made us ill in different ways Dx ( blaming the weather BECAUSE I CAN XD )but despite this, it was still a great weekend!:

Chilling out in York on Saturday afternoon, then having the Masquerade in the evening at Spain's. Then football on Sunday after Spain's awesome pancakes for breakfast ^^ then photoshoot later in the day. Lol i changed a lot that day XD and then on Monday, the travel home, a bit more chilling out( and feeling faint cuz of the heat and lack of food D: till i got McDonalds XD ) and photoshoot of PrUK... ahh it was a great way to end my holidays ^^!

Thanks, everyone~~! xx
