Location: Skaftafell National Park, Iceland

Earlier this year, ~venntus and I went to Iceland with a bunch of friends where we explored the freezing/windy Land of Ice! Our days were chock full of activities, including glacier hiking, dogsledding, lava caving and Northern Lights watching, to experience as many of the natural wonders the country had to offer. However, we also couldn't pass up the opportunity to cosplay with all the gorgeous scenery, especially when we went hiking in Skaftafell National Park.

We came up with the explorer concept and made our cosplays. I designed and made my coat from scratch using suede and real coyote and rabbit fur. I gave it an overall coyote theme with a coyote face for the hood and fur on the cuffs and collar. It was a challenge piecing together the fur pieces from about a dozen different shapes and sizes. [We got the furs during our trip to Alaska a few years ago, for which we also cosplayed in the freezing weather.] I finished the coat with real rabbit fur trim along the side and bottom edges, added some adjustable leather straps (dyed, cut and riveted) for both functional and decorative purposes and attached metal claps to the front. We made our cosplays to be as warm and functional as possible since we visited Iceland during the winter.

I also dyed, cut and riveted the leather pouch around my waist and attached a coyote tail with a few antler pieces. Additionally, I put together the antler cord around my neck and styled the wig.

These Hetalia cosplays are done in good spirit. Please do not take them too seriously.
