Description
I bought most of the stuff over an extended period of time, and really nothing was expensive at all. There are a few detalis awry, like the fact that the jacket isn't leather, despite looking just as good as the actual one. Also, Nantucket refuses to stand up for some reason, dammit!!! XD

I chose America because I read somehwere that he's one of the most fun to cosplay (if not THE most fun), and I always wanted an excuse to be loud, obnoxious, and eat as much as I want <3 Not to mention I'm already part American meself, so I get away with being inherently USUK.
AND I'LL GET ALL THE ENGLANDS NOW ;D BURGERS AND THE BRITISH, YUM XD

It was hard but rewarding to go shopping around to find the clothes, but the hardest bit by far was getting the wig right (modified my France wig) and sewing the fur onto my jacket's collar.

The easiest part was getting some of the items, like the gloves and glasses I already own. I'm grateful that he has glasses, I don't need to worry about investing in contact lenses for him :D OHWAIT. I NEED BLUE ONES? SCREW THAT I'M MAKING MY 'MERICA BROWN EYED <3

What I learnt from this is how to make the most of a bad situation, and how precious money is o.o

WHEN I WORE IT, I FELT HEROIC!!!! 8D AND HUNGRY =3=
