|Hetalia Christmas Shoot
||[Nov. 5., 2010|09:17 pm]
Hey guys. So I'm going to apologize NOW for being so scatter-brained. However, the next idea for a shoot that's coming up is actually a lot more doable (and by doable I mean closer location) and a lot more organized than the dirndl idea. (THOUGH OMG I would LOOOOVE to do a dirndl shoot though. We worked so hard to make those dresses; I do think they deserve some love)
The holidays are upon us! And I was thinking this is a good time to do a Christmas themed Hetalia shoot. Axis and Allies only, so the main 8.
The setting: Fireplace with fire, wooden floors. Christmas decorations. There is a cozy rug and a cozy couch. Christmas tree with lights and decorations. Giving presents. Maybe involve food?? Perhaps we can have some Christmas themed snacks.
The props: I believe we have ornaments and christmas lights handy. However, I would like to get some presents in there. They can be empty boxes wrapped up. Christmas ribbon (thick and thin) would be very nice too. And a wreath with candles in the middle.
The attire: Closet cosplay!! Casual-dressy. Somewhat conservative winter/holiday colors. V-neck sweaters and sweater vests. Argyle preferred, but not required. Slacks and nice shoes. Collared dress shirt underneath. Subtle hint of stripes. Think of what a person from the respected country would wear (the really love their striped button down shirts for some reason). Mix and match; not everyone has to come in wearing a vest. One can come with a button down sweater. Throw on a santa hat if you want! Christmas socks (if any) is a great touch too!
- I do request Germany to wear a pair of glasses
- And Russia, keep sporting that scarf

The place: We will be shooting at my friend's place who lives in the downtown area. It's street parking, but there are soo many spots because the area is pretty desolate. Even better: it's free! With no time limits! I will send a private message about the address as soon as we get all the confirmed people. Her place is great. It's very spacious, and she has wooden floors and a fireplace. And a wooden picnic-styled table that's long enough to seat all 8 of you, so I think we can mess around there and maybe shoot some sort of Christmas dinner? I think it would look cute! I will post pictures of the place once I have the chance to do so. Her schedule tends to fill up as fast as mine does, so it's best if we decide on a date ASAP. Which leads to the next point...
The date: Sometime within the month of December, since November is fully booked for a lot of us. The first weekend of December is out because it's a bad time for a couple. That leaves us with DEC 11, 12, 18, and 19. Please choose which day is best for y'all!
My friend is super excited about this, haha. She likes Hetalia too! THe only request she makes is to not burn yourself at the fireplace. haha.
