Hetalia: Icelandic Snow by gomimushi Hetalia: Icelandic Snow by gomimushi
Hetalia: snjór~

Yours truly as Iceland
Photo by my dad (lol)

When it snowed briefly in London, I ran out while in the middle of writing my gazillion essays and got my dad to take photos of me as Hetalia's Iceland. It was fun to do a quick shoot like that - though I had to set up pretty much every shot due to my dad not quite understanding how to use his own camera (note: "my" Nikon is actually his.) The puffin was given to be by fukkafyla and goes by the name of Glúmur. I have another one that ~hikaraseru gave me (also from Iceland), but it will make an appearance next time we shoot the nordic characters -- which will be if it snows again.

I have the mentality of a 5-year-old so *I* hope it snows again, though I think most people would hope for the contrary.


Here's a random but otherwise interesting article about the worst type of snow in Iceland: [link]

I'd like to learn more about things like this!

I plan to go to Iceland this February and will be your typical shutter-happy tourist; if the pictures turn out well, i'll be spamming a little, maybe. I HOPE TO GOD ICELANDAIR WON'T STRIKE ON THE DAYS I'VE BOOKED. Though I think it would be pretty awesome if I ended up stranded. Yeah. Treacherous roads and flying pots of skyr notwithstanding, I'd like to see if I survive.


p.s/. This photo was brightened (curves) and sharpened, and that was it. Other unedited photos from the shoot are below, if you'd like EXIF data or anything, let me know:

I'm glad you like it!

As to your question, I dont mind if you use my photo as reference, but I'd prefer it if you use it for practice only and do not upload it online anywhere, thanks!

What kind of fabric did you use to the jacket? I'm currently doing research for my fem!Iceland cosplay and I really liked the look of your jacket! And the rest of the cosplay, you look so good in it! C:

I'm afraid I don't know the name of the material as it was picked out by my friend. I'm also not skilled enough to tell you what it is by looking at it - I'm still quite amateur so I tend to go to fabric shops and choose materials by feel and weight rather than by name ;;; I'm really sorry ><;;

I'd say that it's a medium weight-ish fabric (it's lined) that has a sort of matte feel similar to suede. It's definitely not real suede, but if you look out for that brushed/matte look that's what we were going for u3u.

Your costume is very different from the rest. It gives it a genuine feel. It isn't like a jacket put together for the purpose but a costume that is real and genuine.
You could be the real thing!

Ahh thank you;; Honestly my friends and I tend to like military jackets in general so for things like Hetalia we try to get them to look as usable as possible so that they can be worn in daily life as well |D

I'm not so sure I could be the real thing but it's good to know that it doesn't look out of place!
