Photography: Deep Dive Cosplay
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.

For this photo set, we wanted to tell a story of Alfred and Arthur's meeting.

We came up with the explorer concept and made our cosplays. ~venntus's Arthur jacket is made from suede and real rabbit and fox fur and is reversible with a lumberjack plaid theme on the inside. For Alfred's coat, I designed and made the 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. 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 got the furs during our trip to Alaska a few years ago, for which we also cosplayed in the freezing weather. We made our cosplays to be as warm and functional as possible since we visited Iceland during the winter.

We also dyed, cut and riveted the leather pouches around our waists and attached tail (fox for Arthur and coyote for Alfred with a few antler pieces). Additionally, we put together the antler cord around our necks and styled the wigs.

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