Belarus - Axis Powers Hetalia




My first cosplay costume.

All my friends were cosplaying from APH, and on a whim I looked through a page of character designs and jokingly asked if I could be Belarus as I liked her dress. My girlfriend and her best friend thought it was a good idea and encouraged me to give it a go.

I used a pattern for a lolita dress, bodged the sleeves using on old shirt and help from Mum, and improvised the rest. Instead of making a collar I wore a blouse uder the dress, and sewed lace around the join.

Puffy sleeves are really hard if you don't have a good pattern! But net petticoats are a breeze.

Reaction was very positive, and I had great fun interacting with cosplayers of the characters love interest Russia.

For May Expo I wore heels, which were fine for a while, but not so great after a day on your feet. For October Espo I went with combat boots!

Thank you :) I was surprised how positive the reaction was from the Hetalia crowd. It made for a fun Expo.

Thank you all! I'm pleased how it came out, but I look back now and see all the mistakes. I should probably alter/repair it and get a decent wig, but I don't do Hetalia cosplay any more.
