Cosplayer Li Kovacs (pikminlink) > Costume of Hungary / Elizabeta Héderváry from Axis Powers Hetalia
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Hungary with the long sleeves. I decided to do the dress version instead of the uniform version (which I was originally planning to do) because I didn't have any fabric, and I seriously started gathering my materials and worked on this the day before I left to Sais house for Sac Anime times. He helped me with fitting it better one me because a dress form was not available. This is all left over green linen fabric that I found in my fabric bin, which was awesome and just enough to make the whole thing. I borrowed the bottom half of the apron from my mom because I didn't have any white. So I made a matching top piece out of white fabric that I got from Sai, which I would like to fix up later on. Hand embroidered the design and satin stitched the edges. It all matched up really nicely and no one could tell it was two different pieces lol. I borrowed the petticoat, which was so weird because I've never worn one before and I always felt that I was too poofy, but I wasn't at all lol.
The wig was an extra one I had from years ago and never used it for anything so I styled it like hers. I'm not fully happy on the color tho, but oh well.
But yeah, over all it turned out pretty good for a whole day of work.
- Personal Thoughts:
- When I first heard of Hetalia I thought it was cool to dress up as my own country, lol only to find out that my character was a girl. WHY D: lol darn. fine... ill do it. XD
