This started from a headcanon around the time in which Colombia (along with the other members of Gran Colombia) rebelled against Spain back in the early 1800s. The idea was that my Colombia OC did grow up a lot more. She was the type of girl who fussed a bit too much over her looks and working out how a 'proper lady' should be. However it got to the point where she realised that she should define for herself what kind of woman she should be and mark out a path for herself. She wanted to be respected and for others to recognise her fierce nature and her courage. In that process, she decided to cut her hair.
It used to be longer (tbh her hair used to look more like how 's Panama's hair did, just with the different bangs) and while she's let her hair grow a bit more since, she's never fully grown it out the way her sisters Venezuela and Panama did. Colombia began to show more of an energetic, tough personality from the rebelling onwards. She's someone who hates to be underestimated and generally marches to the beat of her own drum.
this started out from a sketch and I really wanted to colour it... it's kinda rare that I get the time to do art based on historical headcanons and stuff. And I really hope you guys like it! And lol, you don't have to necessarily agree with my headcanons btw. This is just how I want my Colombia OC to be: strong, determined, fierce, owns her flaws and well, her personality in general... while she does still like giving herself makeovers and looking fabulous, she's also recognised other priorities and things that should be focused upon more.
This one is based off from our conversation in ~AskFelipinas's question here: fav.me/d6u942p LOL TRIP TALAGA!!! XDDDDD The official or pretty much canon Phili pairing I have seen so far. MangoPhili. XDDDD
After several hours of shopping and trying out different dresses in the Megamall, Feli found one dress for Yasmin that she liked. Yasmin: U-Uhm... Is this all right, Miss Feli? Feli: Ay! Ang kyut! (How cute!) That looks really wonderful! It's got the same color as Joe has! But the green one looks good too...let's try that one!! Yasmin: W-Waah?! W-We're still going to try more? B-But...we-we've been going through different dresses for the past hours... Feli: We'll take a break after we're done with this store, I'll treat you with Jollibee if you like. Yasmin: .....I guess so... (Yasmin is not used to wearing dresses or formal attire. Moreover, shopping? One of her weaknesses...)
Admin (Feli): Oh glob... (when I said I had an idea because of the conversation) Admin (Me): Hehe... (happy to see Yasmin in a dress)
Admin's note: Actually, the idea came up because I had went on a "barkada" trip with my friends at Trinoma...which I thought would just be an ordinary eat out, movie or gala...but in the end, it ended as a shopping trip to try out new outfits for me... (I lack some fashion sense...). As much as it was fun...I still felt a bit embarrassed to be like a doll to be dressed up. And yes, we did spend a few hours on the shopping before heading to the restaurants...memories~.
my titles are so inspiring i hope they bring about world peace d'aww ^___^
BUT YES FINALLY I DREW THIS SHIP
Latvia / Kosovo OC! Otherwise known as LatKo. Or LatKoso. Or KosoVia. Gosh. Name potential everywhere.
So uh, one of the things I like about them is the whole 'tall girl/short guy' dynamic. But I also think their personalities would mesh well together, ahaha.
But it's not just that! They're actually accurate, gasp!
Kosovan–Latvian relations are foreign relations between the Republic of Kosovo and Latvia. Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia on 17 February 2008 and Latvia recognized it on 20 February 2008. Latvian and Kosovan governments established diplomatic relations on 11 June 2008. However, Latvia's involvement in Kosovo dates back to 2000 when it first sent peacekeeping troops.
In 2000, Latvian President Vaira Vike-Freiberga suggested that NATO's willingness to intervene in Kosovo means that the Western alliance will be prepared to come to the aid of Latvia and other East European countries should Moscow threaten them at some point in the future. She said: "Kosovo is not a member of the NATO alliance and yet the alliance was able to take action when it felt that, according to the principles on which it is founded, action and intervention was necessary. I would expect it to do no less anywhere else in Europe."
In November 2005, Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova met Latvian Foreign Minister, Artis Pabriks.
Following the formal recognition of Kosovo in February 2008, Latvian Foreign Minister Maris Riekstins said: "Latvia is ready to share its experience in order to facilitate Kosovo's development towards its Europeisation". The Minister also stressed the significance of Latvia's involvement in both the European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX Kosovo), the key objective of which is to assist Kosovan public administration, courts, and law enforcement bodies, and in the International Steering Group for Kosovo.
In July 2008, Foreign Minister Riekstins visited Kovoso and met with President Fatmir Sejdiu, Prime Minister Hashim Thaçi and Foreign Minister Skender Hyseni. President Seijdiu said he was appreciative of the work of the representatives of the Latvian Contingent within the NATO-led peacekeeping forces (KFOR), and also the participation of Latvian experts in the EU Rule of Law Mission (EULEX) in Kosovo.
During this visit, Minister Riekstins said: "One can draw certain parallels between the history of Latvia and Kosovo, because Latvia too in the early 1990s had to start from the very beginning in the formation of state institutions, this is precisely why we are prepared to share our experience with the government of Kosovo, offering both our political and practical support." In July 1999, the Latvian Parliament approved by a majority of 71-6 to send peacekeepers to Kosovo. In 2000, the first Latvian troops were sent to Kosovo for peacekeeping. In 2005, Latvia committed 105 troops to the peacekeeping effort in Kosovo. Latvia currently has 17 troops serving in Kosovo as peacekeepers in the NATO led Kosovo Force.
and yeah, Latvia has been incredibly supportive of Kosovo and stuff, just looking up articles and all sorts between the two. Even cute stuff like Latvia sending police dogs for Kosovo to use to help strengthen law enforcement, bahaha. But yes, this has become one of Mel's triple threats, the other two being KorPiri and LuxLiech 8I <3
so power to you if you join me with this ship yeah//slapped
everyone else's Toffee is all kawaii and then you have my Toffee and it's basically
Colombia: I'M A HOT BABE AND YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS
England: congratulations you just unlocked my ability to not give a damn
Colombia: AJAJAJAJA KEEP TELLING YOURSELF THAT
England: i swear to god i do not care
-*FIVE DAYS LATER*-
Colombia: YOU KNOW YOU CARE I CAN SEE IT IN YOUR EYES
England: will you shut up if I say I do care
Colombia: -*ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED*- KNEW IT
SERIOUSLY THOUGH IT'S ALL MY COLOMBIA OC'S FAULT TOO
I WANT TO GET HER TO LIKE THE FABULOUSNESS THAT IS TOFFEE BUT
SHE'S YET TO BE CONVINCED THAT THE SHIP IS AS FABULOUS AS HER
and tbh when you have a muse like this one it's better to just shut up and listen to her lol
but really, I headcanon Colombia to be the type of person who is quite flirtatious but doesn't like to be too committed. She's as free as the wind or somethin' -- I guess she doesn't like getting too attached to others, or to let others see her more vulnerable side. SO YEAH MY TOFFEE ENDS UP BEING TWO IDIOTS IN DENIAL, BUT THEIR DENIAL COMES IN DIFFERENT FORMS HAHAHAHAHA
It was my lovely lovely bestie Britt's birthday recently!<3 And I wanted to draw her awesome Andorra OC, the OC that contributed to my interest in creating my own OCs for Hetalia. And personally, I think her Andorra OC is the best Andorra~ =u= //crosses fingers that she'll upload fanworks again because omg her OCs are awesome and thought-out and SHE DOES HER RESEARCH YES
and it was high time I submitted a fanart for Britt, okay 8U
Name: Laura Siegfried (she got her daddy's surname, ahuehuehue)
She has her father's eyes and well, both her parents have blonde hair so--
She also wears glasses just like her father, and likes to wear her hair in plaits the way her mother used to
she is a total girly girl and loves pink, ribbons and other pastel colours. I bet she has a ribbon and doll collection--
as she gets older, she starts to develop more of a liking for high waisted skirts - she starts to mix feminine and corporate together!
Despite her girliness, she's also a giant nerd and loves reading books and using technology. I feel like one of her favourite stories would be Alice in Wonderland--
She can be quite shy and reserved, but when it comes to work, this girl means business. Chances are she will be a CEO of some company in the future.
this girl ends up liking wine as she gets older and it is daddy's fault 8I
as a little girl, Laura wanted to become a fairy princess. If only childhood dreams came true--
Emma (Belgium) dotes on Laura like whoa. Emma and Laura get along really well!
Laura finds Uncle Lars (Netherlands) and Uncle Vash to be sort of intimidating, but as she gets older and more focused with her studies, she often goes to them about advice in regards to money and setting up businesses and whatnot.
anyway um yeah that's all for now lol
Laura Siegfried belongs to and well, Luca (Luxembourg) and Erica (Liechtenstein), yes--
anyways um, that's going to be Colombia's newer look. I switched the headband to green and gave her an emerald bracelet, made her outfit more red - red's been a favourite colour to use with Carmen tbh, it suits her fiery personality.
But yes, this shall be my main reference for this baby-- (at least until i get round to doing a bio thing in the same style as my Kosovo one, pff)
And here we have the design of one of my main characters for my Hetalia AU doujinshi:
Maricela is my Philippines OC, for those who don't know, and for the contest to give your OC the chance to star in the doujinshi, Maricela will indeed need to be drawn. And by the way, she has a star clip that's doing up her whole ponytail. It's a small clip to a human, but quite the accessory to someone who's Dweller size! XD
About Maricela The main heroine of this story. She belongs to the Reception Subject, which means she gets to travel around all parts of the school. However, she wishes that she could be proper human and see the world. She is otherwise an optimistic girl who loves to help. Originally she wanted to be a part of the Cafeteria subject, but she kept trying foods as much as she was making them, thus using up precious ingredients.
ANYWAYS, PLEASE CHECK OUT MY GROUP AND THE CONTEST, IT WOULD MEAN SO MUCH TO ME QUQ
Philippines / Maricela and my 'Elementary' AU belong to Hetalia belongs to
