Costume Information

This has been planned since I first stumbled upon hetalia. (It was actually the first strip I read!) It's an absolute dream costume of mine but I didn't want to upload here until I had more solid plans about it. Well now I do. 8D Not sure exactly when it's for but it's defo happening so I can make my dream video as well. *_*

So much England planned I know I know but what can I say? I adore him. XD

EDIT: Changing this to inprogress now because GoldenMochi is making it for me so we match like dashing gentlemen and smelly rebels obviously should.

Can't wait to see it, this is one of my fav uniforms :D Are you going to try and make this as historically accurate as your WWII uniform?
