Happy -belated- 4th of July by Spwinkles Happy -belated- 4th of July by Spwinkles
AX PREVIEW~~
If I checked my e-mail and saw that my friend sent me this pic 4 MINUTES sooner, I could have posted it on the 4th of July.

Oh well. HAPPY BDAY ANYWAY AMERICA. 234 years young~~

Cos details:

This costume was a semi-last minute decision.
And because it was a semi-last minute decision AND it required a military uniform, I took the "Buy everything!" route. (Which was kinda a nice break from sewing! XD)

The only thing I did was the wig, added details to the bomber jacket and modify the buttons on the front of the military jacket. (THANKS FOR THE IDEAR CAITLIN :I)

Wig from eBay seller wfp-wigs.
Wig color: Color: 27CH24B (Butterscotch/Strawberry blonde)

Military uniform bought here: [link]

I got the jacket on eBay but then added all the America stuff! You can find bomber jackets pretty easily but they can be expensive. That's why I'd try thrift stores or eBay.

waaahhhhhhh! you do HETALIA too? Jeebus christ! why are you so freaking cute? I've just started my Hetalia costumes :D (My leather jacket has a map of America on the lining :D :D :D and it's actual vintage from who knows when :D I got it at the salvation army.)

you look great!

Spwinkles Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2010
This was a pretty last minute cosplay!
(I've been exposed to Hetalia for like...almosy 2 years and I finally broke down. Haha~)
Yeah, one of my friends told me she bought her friend (who cosplays as America) a jacket with a map on the lining and I saw one like that on eBay. Unfortunately it wasn't a small! Oh well.
If I had time I would have scouted the thrift shops. Would have saved me on shipping. XD;

Thanks!

yeah, mine is a bit big on me but i was too excited to care. :P I like the worn used feel it has and I think it fits, considering he's had it at least since WWII if not longer. :P

Mine's slightly too big too but it's not *too* noticeable--or at least I don't think?
It's hard shopping for stuff online and guessing sizes. XD;
