London MCM Expo May 2011

England's infamous military outfit, as seen in Hetalia: Axis Powers (anime).

I didn't do much to this cosplay, mostly lurked on Ebay and put everything together.
- I spent about an hour styling the wig.
- It took me about 20 minutes to repair my epaulettes.

I wore this at a Valentines meet in February 2011, a photo shoot in April 2011, London MCM Expo in May 2011, and planned for a campout in August 2011.

Sam Browne (Posted 23rd June 2011)  

... It's terrible. I'm tempted to just buy myself a new, and proper, Sam Browne belt... they're gorgeous. o 3o I don't want a vintage 1960 one though, I'd feel so guilty wearing that. ;~;

London MCM Expo May 2011 (Posted 29th May 2011)  

Cosplayed this on Sunday at London MCM Expo May 2011.

Cosplay Updates:
- New wig. Styled the night before, so it's still kinda derp. x_x ;; It needs trimming on the side bangs, methinks.

Vital Regions Photo Shoot (Posted 16th April 2011)  

Had a photo shoot with Vital Regions (

Photo Shoot (Changes from the previous instance I wore this cosplay):
- I just realised. XD At Cher's meet, I misplaced my lovely glossy green tie! For that event, I wore the crummy one that came with my England commissioned cosplay... I replaced the tie for this meet. (To Scotty's amusement, "you just want a big shiny tie!" lD)
- Jacket was altered slightly, made it so the epaulettes actually came up and fastened on the buttons so I can put the belt on underneath it. Scotty broke the buttons off... so I must repair lDD
- Belts were borrowed off Scotty. I do plan on purchasing fabric and making my own. I go these in the mean time though. >w< ;;

Binding Test (Posted 12th April 2011)  

Binding test in my cosplay jacket, for the upcoming photo shoot!

London Cosplay Meet :D (Posted 13th February 2011)  

Went to Uzi's cosplay meet in London, the jacket and trousers of my cosplay arrived a day before so I didn't have much chance to fix anything up. x__x ;; So I just wore what I had. Looked kinda suckish. XD

(The picture I uploaded with this journal's derpy. :D)

London Cosplay Meet:
- The wig I wore was the wig I purchased for my England cosplay, purchased off Ebay.
- I purchased the tie separately from the cosplay itself, from a different Ebay store.
- I got lucky with my pale green shirt, I found it on a stall at a summer fair in Richmond.
- Jacket, belts and trousers were commissioned and purchased off Ebay. I plan on replacing the belts as they are way out of proportion.
- My gloves (not seen in the image provided) are black dress gloves purchased from Claire's. I plan on getting some proper leather ones sometime, not new. Second hand.
- Boots were bought from 'Shoe World' in Hounslow.
