"Hi...I'm <lj user="morau">. Go to hell.
So after a month's worth of work and a whole heap of stuff done during the week before Sydney Animania, I finally realised my dream of cosplaying the main powers in the War of Austrian Succession from Hetalia with a bunch of my close friends :)

The con itself wasn't all that exciting, but it was nice to see a noticeable improvement in organisation for this year as well as managing to find a decent solution to deal with the layout of the space. I didn't manage to take many photos of other people other than friends who I bumped into but I got to say hi to people I met through anime cons (along with Jasmine, our favourite Spotlight customer service person lol).

Anyway, so here are some photos we took during the day:

France (Francis Bonnefoy)- Toby
Prussia (Gilbert Weillschmidt)- waitupforgodot
Spain (Antonio Fernandez Carriedo)- neotacoi
Hungary (Elisabeta Hedervary)- evennexsoul
Austria (Roderich Edelstein)- shorelle
England (Arthur Kirkland)- eur0philia

I went as England :) I totally love my red coat!

Have some Bad Friends Trio ;)

France can't decide which one to molest first...hur hur hur

Now for some Prussia/Austria:

Austria needs to watch for his vital regions...

Based off the drama CD track where Prussia pulls Austria's cheeks :D

Prussia attempts to show Austria how awesome he is...but is failing epicly :)

Austria gets fed up with Prussia's awful attempt at playing the violin

Rape is imminent...

BONUS: Hungary beating up Prussia...

Hungary will kick your ass if you pick on her husband...

Have a little Austria/Hungary:

And now for some France/England (or FrUK):

France trying to hit on England...England is not impressed.

France trying to steal a kiss from England...England fears for his vital regions...

England soooo doesn't know this person...-__-

Some bonus shots of Prussia's awesomeness and crack fail:

I also bumped into some of my friends who did awesome cosplays such as:

romanceizborn who did Mouri from Sengoku Basara

miyukiko who did Oichi from Sengoku Basara

Yuki as Ranmaru Mori from Sengoku Basara


It was fun to wear 18th century military uniforms lol...and also carrying around musket rifles ^^

Also congratulations to the Sengoku Basara group for winning Best Group :D I knew you guys would! *flail*

Ooh, I hope to see more Animania photos as I didn't go. xD Were there any Hetalia cosplayers besides you?

Also...did Animania suck as much as it did last year...?

There was a Hungary and China (I think they were both at SMASH as well from the photos my friend took from all the conventions) and my friend did Finland along with her friend who was Russia. I think I saw a Lithuania somewhere too...

Animania this year surprisingly wasn't too sucky. They did a much better job with the venue layout and the cosplay was very good this year. Admittedly there still wasn't much to do at the con, but it was nice seeing my friends and all the interesting costumes :D
