APH - Germany by captaintop APH - Germany by captaintop
Germany from Axis Powers Hetalia.

Oh my God I'm going to wear this cosplay as much as I can because I love it so much. It was 100% hand-sewn, not purchased. $12 for the fabric! Haha.

Reason I decided to cosplay Germany is because:
1)I'm 50% German, and
2)He's awesome.

All of the extras included (like the pins, flashlight, belt, etc) belonged to my father. He's an ex-police officer and military official. The badges/pins on the jacket are legit shit. XD

Photo was taken at the photo room at Saboten Con, and was taken by Kevin Dooley.
Visit his Flickr: [link]

Edited it a little to make it look like it's circa WWI. ;D

Whoa... from that angle, you kinda look like Draco Malfoy...

But anyways, I applaud you for a really authentic-looking cosplay :)

You're welcome and please do! I really love Draco too but don't know why... just started liking him more than Harry... must have been that whole badboy/villain thing, Dramione, or the fact that he is blonde.

No, my friend and I had a basic suit pattern that we just altered around for a more military look. But yeah, all hand-sewn aside from the hat! And gloves haha.

Thank you. Hopefully I will have a few to add after Taiyou, but yeah....Germany will only come out for special photoshoots. :)

And, fun fact! If you search 'Germany cosplay' on deviantart under most popular of all time, my picture is the second most popular. :)

Haha, I haven't only been cosplaying Germany. People only know me for his cosplay.

I have been cosplaying Turkey, a Heartless from Kingdom Hearts, Rangiku Matsumoto from Bleach, Mogami Kyoko from Skip Beat, and Integra from Hellsing. And then the poll I just started will decide the new one to replace Germany for conventions. :)

Retiring Germany for conventions doesn't mean I'll never wear him again, I'll still wear him if people want to do private photoshoots, but as far as conventions he's done.
