Roma Antiqua - Axis Powers Hetalia




This is/was my secret cosplay planned for may 2011 but may end up being brought forward to may 2010....

Not so secret anymore xD

oh, and making armour from scratch is a Huuuuuuuge pain, as is trying to find good ref pics.

Oh sod it, I've brought him forward to May 2010, tho i may yet repeat him next May too!

Materials for armour that can be scavenged from a student house: free - worth £20
Things I've had to buy: £10
Having an awesome housemate helping me with the gauntlet and armour: Priceless

dearie, how are you making the armour, out of pure interest? I don't think you have a forge in your garden XDDD

Well~ (I wish I did have a forge....) I'm getting help to make it as I have to make it lightweight and well-fitted due to wearing it alllllll day, so it'll prob be something like many many many layers of papier mache. Am looking around the interwebs to see what material is best to do it with tho.
