I come once again with a cosplay question or two.

I've posted in the past with several cosplay questions; now I have a really weird one.

I ordered what I thought was a large England cosplay last month and got it last week. Only, it's not a large at all. The shirt and jacket fit, but they're snug. My problem is the pants. I can't even get them on. For reference, I'm an American size 16, which is average. The pants look to be maybe a size 8/10. I'm going to do my best to lose as much weight as I can before Fanime comes this summer in May, but I'm most likely not going to fit into those pants. So, more experienced England cosplayers. What would you do in my situation?

The only thing I can think of is to buy a pair of pants that fit me and dye them green, but I'm worried about the color not matching.

[FANFIC] The Hero's Return

Erm, I already posted this on the USxUK community, but from what I've seen a lot of people post fanworks on both pairing comms and the Hetalia comm...? If that's wrong, please tell me so I can delete this >.<

: The Hero's Return
Genre: Romance/Angst
Pairing: USxUK / UKxUS
Rating: T
Summary: "Even though they've been together for over half a century now, he's still afraid to say the words too often. Afraid that saying them too often will wear them out somehow, cause the magic to fade away. He doesn't want this spell to end. He wants America to be his forever." England reflecting on his relationship with America. Songfic.

Prints for charity!

I've never posted here, so I'm a little nervous, but I thought I should drop by to tell you that I just put quite a few fanart prints in my Etsy shop, from which all profits from the rest of March will go towards Japan relief! There are a couple that members of this community may be interested in!

Collapse )
You can find the listing here!

I only put a couple up in each listing because this is my first time selling prints on etsy and I wasn't sure how well they'd go, so if they run out or if you would like to order more than is available, send me a message and I will add them as soon as possible! Also, I forgot to check on how much it would cost to send them internationally, so that's not an option at the moment, but I will look into that soon!

So please go check out my Etsy shop! Other prints include D.Gray-man, Ace Attorney, Katekyou Hitman Reborn, Soul Eater, Death Note, Final Fantasy X, and The World Ends With you, so if any of those interest you, go and see what's there!

[Fanfic] The Kid - Ch. 8 (Kink Meme Deanon)

Title: The Kid 
Author/Artist: MoyaKite
Character(s) or Pairing(s): Mainly Prussia, Germany, and Freddy (little kid!OC), but almost everyone could end up in here eventually.
Rating: PG (thus far)
Warnings: Fluff, discussions of mortality, potential for future character death (not that it will necessarily happen)
Summary: Deanon from the kink meme for the prompt:
Prussia, being a dad - After the unification of Germany, Prussia was left without much to do. Germany took care of all the official work, so all Prussia could do what get drunk or bother people. One day he decides to go backpacking across the country, and somehow through his adventures he ends up with custody of a small child (2 at the youngest, 5-ish at the oldest, and I would prefer that the kid was a boy too).
Author's Notes: The original is here. (The bonuses are listed there.) I'm extremely fond of this story, so it's likely to continue as long as people keep showing interest. The more comments I get, the quicker I'll update.

I'm deanoning this to let people know that I'm auctioning off a fanfiction commission here. Please take a look if you're interested; there are also many other writers participating at help_japan. I'm also offering a translation here, and abarero has kindly organized a list of Hetalia-related offers here.

Cosplay assistance?

Hello everyone! (Mods, if this isn't allowed, please delete!) I'm wondering if I can have some cosplay assistance! I'm cosplaying as America for Anime Boston in a month, and I've never actually used a wig before for a cosplay. (I normally cosplay characters with my hair color.)

Can anyone guide me to a good source for wigs? I'm overwhelmed by the sheer number of wig websites online and I don't know much about wig quality. I'd like at least a decent one.

And if it helps, I live in the US, on the east coast.

Thank you in advance!
