I'm just beginning to cosplay, and I was wondering if you could give me a couple of pointers in the right direction. I'm starting off as fem!America and you are really good, and I was just wondering if you could help me out a bit. :)

Sure! But you want a few pointers on fem!America specifically or just cosplay in general? I suppose giving general pointers would help anyway...
First and foremost, have fun! xD But I suppose for the technical stuff.... always wear a wig cap before putting on a wig to keep all your hair out of the way. Try to spring for a nicer wig, they last longer and look better. Always wear make up, even if it's something simple like concealer or foundation and even if you're cosplaying as a guy--it makes a world of difference and your photos definitely will turn out nicer. When picking out fabrics, have a few reference pictures so you can match details and colors as best you can. When looking for random accessories/props or costume pieces, try the 99 cent stores! They have a lot of random stuff that can be handy for cosplay. I find a lot of stuff on eBay too. I'm suddenly drawing a blank on stuff I could say but hopefully that's a start.

For Fem!America specifically, I used this pattern for her top: Simplicity 9200
For her skirt I used this tutorial on youtube: [link]
The jacket I just used from my male!America cosplay and that was found on eBay. Boots also found on eBay. And the wig was from epiccosplay. (ALSO eBay but they have a regular online store.) I had to trim the wig to chin length.

Haha, I don't think he had time to grow it out since we needed him last minute since our original France couldn't make it. xD
And thanks, we appreciate it!
For wigs: I got mine on eBay and styled it. France borrowed his from our Germany and I think our England got hers on eBay too. China's using her real hair. Not sure where Russia got hers.
