Description
Of all the Hetalia characters, I have decided to cosplay USA because:

a) he's a hero (self claimed)
b) he could eat anything (just like me)
c) I love burgers

Oh and of course, he wears GLASSES!!! XD

Absolutely fantastic! I can't help but laugh at Alfred, he's such a funny character. I'm so looking forward to seeing you at Expo, where my friend and I will be HRE and Austria!

Brilliant work!

To-Do List

Get a pair of matching colour khaki trousersHighComplete
Get a brown tie and beltHighComplete
Make the patches to go on the leather jacketHighPlanned

Journal

Got the tie, belt and trousers! (Posted 8th May 2009)

Went out to Oxford Street today and comb through various shops. Bought the tie + belt from Next, then the trousers from GAP~

Ah, the joy from rummaging through the Men's section! (no I didn't go into the Men's fitting room)

Finally got the wig and the leather jacket! (Posted 27th March 2009)

After waiting for several weeks, I finally received these 2 items! Hurrah!

I was worried that the leather jacket would be way too big for me (seeing that it's for men), but it fits me surprisingly well... perhaps this is something I should worry about...

As for the wig, when I first tried it on, I thought I look more like Leon S. Kennedy (of Resident Evil) than Alfred ^^; But after some intensive ruffling + combing + restyling, it managed to look something more like Alfred's hair... Still, the fringe might still be a bit too long as it keeps poking one of my eye, so maybe I'll have to give it another trim.
