Important to all Hetalia cosplayers!
((So I went to Salt Lake Comic con on Saturday as Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and as my friends and I were resting, we experienced watching the “newbies” of hetalia cosplay (I would know, I’ve been in the fandom in my area for a while and I have never seen them before until then). To be completely honest, I was a little disappointed in them…they were nice, yes, but I only talked to them for less than a minute before leaving. Later, I noticed veterans to the hetalia fandom complaining about how those hetalians were disrespecting their countries and allowing their flags to drop and touch the ground. As one of the more experienced hetalians politely asked a Prussia cosplayer to refrain from allowing the flag to touch the ground, they purposefully threw it down to the floor and said something along the lines of how Prussia was dead anyway.
So if anything, please please PLEASE be respectful about the country you are cosplaying, because you ARE representing them. I know pretty much all of you on here are careful of that–thank you so much. Also. France is not a rapist. Spain is not a pedophile. Etc.
Thank you for understanding ^^))
