In response to Xtine, I've made the nuke and also just finished making the sunflower (totally could not find an artificial sunflower, so had to spraypaint a massive daisy into one, but it worked 8D)

Dude, spraypaint a daisy?! That's hardcore!

I'd give you one of my sunflowers, but they're still quite small.

I think Sergei's looking for a good home though. Any takers?

Who does "any takers?" apply to?

Sergei sounds dreamy.

Sergei Witte? Sergei Semenov? Sergei Prokoviev?

It could be said there is a surplus of Sergei.

Chary (america) here!
Live from Novotel (at midnight because apparantly trains don't go back from centrum to this place after 9 and we had to walk half the way)
If there's still a need for an (biggish) American flag for the skit I can provide one.
(Afterall I have one big and one small American flag, plus a british and greek one)
Looking forward to meeting all you guys tomorrow!

Uwahhh! I saw you guys and asked for a picture at the far end of the expo (when it was super-empty) first thing this morning! You were all amazing :) I was with another girl, and I was the one with spiky-(slightly-duck-butt)-hair!
I hope to be able to cosplay Hetalia at October MCM London expo- maybe I will see you there again?

UWAAA

Congratulations on winning the skit you guys! ;____;

That day was so epic, I'm sorry I didn't hang out with you for longer! xD And sorry for being so unphotogenic. ;;

Sorry for falling backwards in the first photoshoot - onto Prussia, HRE and Succession France, right? orz;.

Walking around Anime Village, I met another Iggy cosplayer. xD Such a "grand gueule"! Seriously, I walked up to her, and she was like: "OH GOD IT'S FRANCE . OFF WINE FACE" xDDD She didn't mean it, I got a hug from her... and then she screamed rape. Hm. Is she on the forum? X]

I got lots of hugs, some people might remember me as the person going: "Bonjour~" and sometimes stroking under their chins. xP

Definitely coming in October! <3

Vinnie!

I'm going to copy Kath and USE MASSIVE WRITING TO DISPLAY CRAZY ENTHUSIASM.
Good work everyone else who was in the skit, we totally nailed timings and performance 8D. And great job to all the other cosplayers who weren't in the skit but were just cosplaying Hetalia characters =).



Хорошо! Очень хорошо. Молодец !

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUoTroWSYx0&feature=channel at around 5:50 onwards
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TXtvsC1QHhs&feature=channel at around 4:45 onwards
