APH nyo: Nordics by vivalalixi APH nyo: Nordics by vivalalixi
OMG i'm like so excited, it feels like i haven't uploaded in like forever. DA seems so familiar yet unfamiliar at the same time. firstly, i'd like to apologize for the uber late submission. i just almost finished term 2, barely, really. i hope you guys still remember me. :>


NOR- my first design of the lot, which coincidentally is my fave. i did research, i really am not familiar with the nordics, don't bash me, and found out that norway here can see mythical creatures. decided to base her outfit on scandinavian mythology's elf. major inspiration is norway's national flower, purple heath. hence the colour. another seethrough dress! 8D

inspiration from [link] & DIOR A/W '11-12

FIN- in the working pic she was actually beside Su-san, but i needed to balance the final presentation, oh well. IDK, i do apologize, although sufin is my nordic OTP they're the couple i had no idea what to work on. today, we went to the city and i saw this really cute hoodie, bear scarf. you can use it as mittens as it has mittens attached to both ends of it. it's really cute!!! can't afford the $99 price tag :< since the brown bear is finaland's, correct me if i'm wrong, national animal i used it as inspiration. the bottom puffy dress brings cuteness along with the ribbons. added leg warmers too, idk she looks gyaru now. the skirt shape reminds me of snowy mountains with lights on em. HAHA. lace and pearls accents at the bottom.

DEN- second favourite. i'm a great fan of norse mythology, wanted to make den's outfit Loki inspired and su-san's Odin. but changed my mind cuz, i think denny should be king :3 /shootmenowprz. i love the antlers, idk, reminds me of one of mcqueen's masterpieces, also gives this sense of power. haha. ALSO! I DREW BOTH HER FEET! congratulate me!

inspiration Mcqueen A/W '10-'11, Marchesa A/W '11-12

SWE- huge apology to ~TheBananafly she helped me loads in the research part but this was what i produced D8. ok all i really zoned into was that they're apparently really practical. i know the outfit hardly looks practical but, really, it's the least embarassing to where out on a normal day out of all of this. fur for insulation, fur hat, fur skirt. what fabric goes with fur? leather-ish gloves, really edgy. haha. "OTL i'm sorry.

reference to Mcqueen Resort '11-12

ICE- what to say? ice queen. silver and millenium blue colour scheme. i really like this one too. ok no research, bimbo outfit but srsly, it does fit :3 haha /lazy. snowflakes detail on the hem line of gown and the neck line. it's got pearls as well. shiny chiffon outer layer. really willowy and ghostly.

inspiration from Mcqueen's iris dress, forgot which season.

sigh, finally done it. srsly i don't feel confident at all! it's just that i haven't posted up in so long, i haven't drawn as well. i feel really rusty. T-T

:star: [link] :star:

to current commissioners, worry not, i'm working on it! getting to notes right after upload.

prolly not uploading another hetalia plate till i work on personal collections :< sorry. b-but i'll get you the AZNS next :heart:
higer resolution for print purposes. don't say i didn't warn you.

The Nordics have always been beautiful. But this... this bring it to a completely new level. If I had any talent to designing, or had fabrics, I would make these outfits in a heartbeat. =viva-la-lixi has made these wild animals the highlight of the century in my vision. (Especially Denmark's, I mean, c'mon there's antlers!) Iceland is a princess of snowflakes, Den is a forest goddess, and Finland speaks for the bears. Lovely, just absolutely lovely, my friend. Oh, and tell me, what did you use to color the designs? It could help me a great deal in what I want to do. :)
What do you think?

Oh lord, this is gorgeous! I love norse cultures but totally lost by how to draw their fashion :) (or in generally, i'm lost in any kind of fashion lol) Of course I dont intend to plagiarize, but it gives me inspiration, so thank you for this piece of art!

It's amazingly beautiful! I could never do something like that! I wish though......
ellesra Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2011
... Sweden look so Finland xD Dunno why, I guess because I know next to nothing about Finland, and in a Norwegian's eyes Swedes are all just blond bimbos. But I guess, Norwegians might be as well.

Iceland, though, really does fit her name, though in my mind people from Iceland are half-old guys who ride on horses. Lol x) Also, Denmark is very flat, so I doubt they have many reindeer, as the horns SEEM to represent. I cannot say I am totally knowledgeable about reindeer and moose, but I know that much. :p So she might be Norway, to me. Probably because I've seen reindeer here.

Oh well. These are amazing! I envy your clothes skills :0 I kind of feel inspiration by looking at your drawings. I believe I will draw now. ^^

oh good god can I cosplay that denmark? She's amazing @ u @
TheHetalian Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
So beautiful. God, these designs are perfect! You should definitely go into the designing business. I love every dress in this, and I will totally favorite this.
vivalalixi Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Haha! The problem is I'm only starting to learn how to sew now.
TheHetalian Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Ah, me too! But my reason is for cosplays ^^;
Hixateez Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
That outfit you gave Sweden looks so Sweden. Absolutely my favorite here:aww:
But I like the rest a lot, too. Beautiful colors and everything. Denmark is a little over the top for my taste but you've drawn all the details well^^

Ahhh, I just love the Nordics. I wish Hidekaz drew official genderbents of the other four as well.
Gryffgirl Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2011

etaru Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011
These designs are stunning, simply stunning. You are very talented, I would love to one day put together a cosplay group based on these, if you would approve of it. I wonder how you would design the Eastern block countries, I'm really curious!

On a random note, it's ironic you drew Sweden with so much fur because Swedes are very environmentalist and opposed to wearing animal furs/skins. Though, I only found this out while studying in Sweden myself XD
vivalalixi Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Aww thank you so much! The honor is mine, haha as long as you guys take lots and lots of pictures, that will make me very happy. Eastern block... Probably doing them after the Asians, I've already conceptualized theirs.

Lol that, I knew they were practical, but I suppose I wouldn't be surprised they're environmentalists as well. Worry not, I can't stand real fur, so that's probably faux anyway. X3 I really need more research next time.
etaru Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2011
No no, it's a beautiful design! But yes, would probably be faux fur XD I definitely watched your account, I can't wait to see what new designs you come up with! :)
