Hetalia - Explorer UK by da-rk Hetalia - Explorer UK by da-rk
Axis Powers Hetalia [Explorer Version]

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. In the background you can see Svartifoss, a waterfall surrounded by natural basalt columns. [The many beautiful icicles also serve as great, but very cold play swords!]

We came up with the explorer concept and made our cosplays. ~venntus's jacket is made from suede and real rabbit and fox fur. We got the furs during our trip to Alaska a few years ago, for which we also cosplayed in the freezing weather. The hooded jacket is reversible with a lumberjack plaid theme on the inside. We made our cosplays to be as warm and functional as possible since we visited Iceland during the winter. ~venntus made the real antler and claw cord around her neck and dyed, cut and riveted the leather pouch around her waist. Wig was also hand styled.

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

Thanks! Yes, we all loved Iceland! It's much colder than I'm used to (even in the winter), but the country has such natural beauty. I would love to go back sometime. *o*

In the US, but I mean I don't think there's anywhere in the States (other than Alaska) that even comes close to weather extremes in Iceland. Awesome! I'm glad you do! I really mean that though - great country, great people. :)
