Hello from a Cosplay Rookie!
Hello people
My name is Alice and I am brand new to cosplayisland and I am a complete Cosplay virgin! I've been thinking of cosplaying for a while but never really had the guts to do it. But I went to hyper Japan last month (not cosplaying) and had such an amazing time, but i knew it would have been even more awesome if i had cosplayed, as it just looked like so much fun! Thus here i am *waves* ^_^

I think I'm in a similar to situation to alot of other poeple on here; being I'm the only one out of my friends who knows what cosplay and anime is (also who is aware that a Manga is not a tropical fruit *_*). So I'm hoping I'm going to be able to meet a lot more people who are in to cosplay/anime and be nice to get advice from people who do this alot, and hopefully make some friends as well! I never knew there was as many cosplayers in the UK as there seems to be, so thats a really pleasent surprise!

Just to add some of my favourite anime at the moment: Black Butler, OHSHC, Soul Eater, Hetalia, Baccano!, Tiger and Bunny (there's more but i don't want to ramble more than I am)
Hope People say Hello and ignore my excessive droning ^_^

OHSHC was my first too!
Eeshk, the tablecloth thing sounds tricky..but I'm sure it'll turn out great! ^^
I'm glad to see there's another Alice fan here I just hope I can do Boris justice with the cosplay, eheheheh ^^;
And Hetalia...well, I spent ALL of today so far reading a 216-chapter Canada/America fic, and I'm watching Paint It White right now...
/not obsessed at all!

Agh Hopefully it will, well if it doesn't work at least i will have a new table decoration
You will be an amazing Boris, it will be awesome, would be worth coming up to Fushicon to see it ^_^

Haha that sounds familiar!
Canada/America- I fully support this bromance
Watched Paint It White about a week ago. First time i watched it I was like WTF then just accepted it was Hetalia...then it seemed less weird and now it's just <3
Hope you enjoyed it though!

07 Aug 2011 - 18:1965769
My favourite part was ALL of the Switzerland/Liechtenstein picnic scenes
BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING MORE AWESOME THAN PICNICKING DURING ARMAGEDDON.
And yeah, it was WEIRD, but...then again, Hetalia XD

And thankyou! I'll be sure to upload pics once it's done Make sure you get pics of England on here! ^^

*looks at your username*

No more information necessary, I like you.


And now for tea, Daisy if you would be so kind.


07 Aug 2011 - 18:3665777
-plucks out a tea set from thin air and pours tea, then hands it out, adding milk and sugar according to individual tastes-

Done! ^^ Would anyone like a cookie?

Haha!
-accepts Tea-
My name pretty much sums me up
Tea really is <3 and probably the reason I can actually achieve anything in a day!

If anyone ever wants to bribe me to do anything, all you need to do is offer me a good cuppa...i am easily pleased!
I will take that cookie as well, you guys are just spotting my weaknessess so easily ^_^

THE EPIC BARRIER OF CONSTANT NEUTRALITY!

Look forward to seeing the pictures, i'm sure it will be awesome!


07 Aug 2011 - 20:4165787
THE EPIC BARRIER OF CONSTANT NEUTRALITY IS AMAZING!
I realised something awesome about it - the Pict got to Italy and Germany - but not to Austria or Hungary, which makes sense because the Swiss Barrier of Constant neutrality is between Germany and Austria!
Still, Ukraine should have had a bigger part in the movie. She's adorable!

Wow I never noticed that! At least we now know where to go in case of an Armageddon... and people say Hetalia never teaches you anything

She wasn't in it enough and I agree I have yet to find a more adorable character than Ukraine! I feel like the Baltics and Poland weren't it enough either...apart from appearing in tutu's! That would actually be such a randomly awesome thing to cosplay...the Ballerina Baltics! ^_^


07 Aug 2011 - 22:1965803
OHMYGOD I TOTALLY JUST REMEMBERED A FIC WHERE BELARUS GOES TO THE BALLET AND IT TURNS OUT RUSSIA DOES BALLET TOO.
It's AMAZING <3
Speaking of Ukraine, the duet that she and Belarus were supposed to sing?
It's their image song <3
Here, have it as a gift http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZneErf2PL4

Oooh I'm gonna have to go find me this fic! But now all i have is an image of Russia in a tutu... o_0

Oh my thank you, I never knew about this song! It's super catchy but kinda creepy as well...a bit like Russia (and Belarus really)
And its taught me how to say 'I love you' in Russian...learn something new everyday
Also I'm kinda wondering why it's called Carrots and Sticks? Again I suppose it's Hetalia ^_^


(By the way really random bit of information i found, Boris and England have the same voice actor, don't know why but that just makes me happy <3 )


08 Aug 2011 - 11:1065825
They have the same voice actor? :O
THAT IS SO AWESOME ASDFGHJKL
And it's called "Carrot and Stick" because in episode 42, Belarus is described as a dictatorship skilled at the "carrot and stick" method (alternating reward and punishment to motivate people) and they're singing to Russia - he wants Ukraine to stop avoiding him, but he's creeped out by Bela - so, to Russia, Ukraine is the "carrot" and Belarus is the "stick"!
I found the fic!
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6365515/1/Pas_de_Deux
Beware, Austria/Belarus crack pairing

I know it just makes me super happy when the same voice actor plays my favourite characters <3

Ahh, wow thank you, Again i never knew that! It makes alot more sense now and is actually a very clever title!

Thanks for the fic!
Just read it now, it actually works really well which i find kind of rare for crack parings! And now that relationship just seems to strangely work in my head now...never thought i would say that about an Austria/Belarus paring o_O

I don't know why but i find something almost sweet or innocent (never thought i would describe Belarus that way) about all the ways in which she tries to impress Russia!
And the thought of her 'disposing' of the uncooperative piano...and of course Austria's reaction to this

Have to admit as much as I do love the randomness of Hetalia i aboslutley LOVE historical Hetalia Fic's! Must go find more now

Natalya is indeed oddly sweet....somehow O_o
And Austria/Belarus is now viable for me! XD
Also a good crack pair - Canada/Poland, I found a fic about it if you want it
If you like historical fics, I'd recommend The Daughter Of Turul - five chapters, Hungary-centric, dealing with the German occupation of Hungary and Russia's invasion of it during WWII
http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5096970/1/The_Daughter_of_Turul/
Tell me if you like it, I have plenty of others that I think you'd like! ^^

Glad i'm not the only one who thinks that ^_^

Canada/Poland, it seems so crack that it must be good!

Just about to go read the Hungary fic and will messege you when I'm done!
Yes please, You seem really good at hunting out great fic's!
I'm actually terrible at finding fic's most the ones I read just leave me thinking 'what the hell' (and not in the general hetalia way )
At least it seems impossible for me to find any good histroical fics!
That being said though, i think i get overwhlmed by the amount of fanfic's in the hetalia communtity (I fail when given more than a few options *_*)
Thanks again though!


08 Aug 2011 - 16:4865867
I'll send you them as soon as you're done
I find the best way to find good fics is to look on TVTropes' recommendations list Here you go, if you want it
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/FanficRecs/AxisPowersHetalia

There are sections for really good pairing fics, general fics, crossovers, and the slightly darker fics. The historically-accurate ones are usually quite dark, but there's an Austria/Hungary-centric one that is absolutely AMAZING, and deals with the fallout of WW1 and I love it <3
Anyway, the moral of this is that I read far too many fanfics, and message me as soon as you're done with Turul, and I'll hook you up with some REALLY good stuff, mkay? ^^
