Cosplayer pirateandelf > Costume of Austria / Roderich Edelstein from Axis Powers Hetalia
About this Costume
- Construction Details:
- Used Simplicity pattern for the coat. The hammer and sickle were probably the hardest part having been design to suit what i wanted then having my dad help use a wood lathe to carve them...LOTS OF SPRAY PAINT. Also made the Austrian shield placed on top of the cravat out of wood as well. The chains are modified Halloween decoration, having added to them with molds and spray painting. As for the wing, the base I bought then added more feathers to make the wing pattern the way I wanted it.
- Personal Thoughts:
- This cosplay is going to be one of my last Hetalia ones I will work on. I only have on other that I'm in the process of making but this one was meant to be special. Having got the idea from a few fan arts I saw floating around along with the Austria flag itself and some of my own idea's this came to be. I love how it turned out and had a test run of it at one con already. It was well received and I have found some things from the first run through to work on to make it better.
Hope to have the final product of this soon.
p.s. Wings are a pain to wear at cons...
