aph: holy rome

Not too Holy, not too Roman, status of “Empire” highly questionable…

Can’t stop thinking about my History of Western Civ class from last quarter, which must be a pretty good thing, so decided to draw lil HRE in Medieval Carolingian garb, since I think he looks pretty snazzy in his glorified sheets. Sort of inspired by @cidershark‘s HRE doodles, except…still pretty loose and heavy on the symbolism, not necessarily accuracy hah.

after mehmed ii conquered byzantine, he declared himself the roman emperor and protector of the orthodox church (even as to his east, moscow would style itself the third rome) – “in old times, the roman empire was pagan, catholic, and orthodox. now it is muslim.

Character: Holy Roman Empire
Series: Axis Powers Hetalia
Cosplayer: Azure Angel Cosplay

I actually debuted this at Katsucon 2014, but sadly had next to no pics of it by myself. I DID manage to meet a very adorable Chbitalia cosplayer at that convention and we had a great time posing together! I also wore this at Colossalcon 2014, but again had very few solo pics, but I did meet a really gorgeous Fem!Holy Roman Empire. It wasn’t until this year’s International Cosplay Day in Baltimore that I finally got enough to post comfortably. Thank you to all that helped with taking pics of me!
