Cosplayer Sparkle Pipsi > Costume of America / Alfred F. Jones from Axis Powers Hetalia
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Pretty simple costume, obviously xD! Used I think duckcloth(?) for the skirt and top; it was hefty enough I didn't even need to line it or anything. The jacket is made from micro-suede, with black fur collar and ribbed knit trim, fully lined... it actually feels like a pretty legit jacket, woot! Heat'n bond was used to apply the star and "50" on back of jacket. Plastic baseball bat ghetto-ly spray painted brown (the bat was not happy about being spray painted and kept wanting to melt, but I was determined to make it work, lol!) Also: American Flag nails!!
- Personal Thoughts:
- When I first heard of Hetalia, I absolutely LOVED the concept... it's basically "country gijinka!" I was particularly drawn to the character of America, because he reminded me SO much of my darling husband, haha
- Styling Notes
- Trimmed from about mid-back length to shoulder length; also trimmed the bangs, but that's about it ^__^.
