Description
Norway, Norway, you rather stoic, sadistic character you. With all those expressionless or frowning faces this character pulls, it seemed to be a perfect choice to cosplay for me, particularly as, in regards to the female version/genderbend of the character, I most certainly don't even need a wig!

I lie just a tad; this is almost complete, and yet as I only have a ribbon to finish off on the hat, I thought I may as well just say it's done. xD I bought a school jumper from Marks and Spenser which I edited, making the sleeves with those little gold buttons, and sailor collar with velvet-stuff and a black ribbon, to make the overall top for Norway. The hat and skirt are made of the same velvet-y material, the second of which took a fair amount of time to pleat. I used a blue ribbon from an old belt for the one on the top, and a regular black and white one for the hat.

Being able to use my own hair for this cosplay is most definitely a plus, as it's so much easier to control, even if it isn't anywhere near as pretty as a wig may have been. Overall, I'm almost tempted to wear this cosplay as an every day thing, seeing as it's so understated and 'normal' looking xD.
