I love military uniforms.  I always have.  When Hetalia debuted, it was a cosplayers paradise for me.  Prussia was a cocky little arse and for some reason, this appealed to me.  Because I got into it before the anime was released, I did not have a lot of definitive references.  The nature of Hetalia’s manga art is mostly chibi, rarely colored, and pretty inconsistent.  This left a lot open to interpretation, which allowed me to be more creative with this costume.

The pants and jacket were made by me.  The gloves, shirt, tie, and belt were purchased.  The boots were purchased and then modified.  The wig was cut and styled by me.
