Characters: Germany, Austria and Prussia - Axis Powers Hetalia
Date: Saturday July 17th 2010
Location: Malaria's house
Photographer: Andy
I have obviously been overwhelmingly slow in getting these up. So now they're Happy American Thanksgiving pics. It's still Thursday on the west coast. It's how we roll.
This was originally supposed to be a shipping sort of shoot, but we are apparently huge failures at doing even vaguely shippy things and having them turn out well. In light of our egregious fail, we are taking requests in the hope that it'll inspire us to be better. Details at the end of this post.

Qire - Germany
Malaria - Austria
Yagi - Prussia

We open with Austria being Austria at the piano...

... and some unannounced visitors in the parlor.

Austria's less than pleased with how they announce themselves.

But for a little while, it seems like even Prussia can play along nicely...

...Until he decides that he'd look much better sitting on Austria's piano bench. Alone.

But Prussia's playing really needed correction anyway, so Austria compromises. with impromptu music lessons.

Eventually, Prussia gets bored, wanders off, and it's Germany's turn! Where was he skulking this whole time, anyway?

Germany's not as interested in music lessons as he could be.

They break for teatime. While Austria is in the kitchen, Germany and Prussia are busy feeding their pre-tea snacks to Gilbird.

When the tea comes out, exactly one person in the room is happy about it. It's definitely not Prussia.

Or Germany. Or maybe he's just confused because it doesn't come in a beer stein.

Regardless, they start to work together to ruin Austria's teatime.

When that doesn't work, they start looking for subtle ways to make teatime end early.

It doesn't work.

Eventually, they get through tea, and Germany and Austria decide to have a nice chat outside.

Well, at least it was nice for a little while.

Then it was time to go. Germany and Prussia tried to do a nice goodbye, but it was really hard for them.

Together with Austria, they managed a proper thank you for taking the time to check out this photoshoot.

We still wanna make up for our shipping fail above, and since we had trouble coming up with anything remotely romantic ourselves, we figured we'd turn it over to the Hetalia fans, 'cause you guys know pretty much exactly what you want.

Since we did the Austria's House shoot in July, we've added some members to our little cosplay group, which means in addition to requesting shots with Austria, Germany and Prussia, you can also ask for Hungary and N Italy.

We love prompts that are about specific historical events, and we love to be silly. We don't think any one ship is better than any other, so don't be afraid to suggest a rarer combination!
By the same token, there's some limits to what we'll do:
-Nudity ain't happenin'
-Non-con makes our skin crawl

There's no limit to the number of requests a single person can make, so feel free to comment with as many as you like! We might not do every request, but goshdarnit it we will try.

Epic thanks, dude.

This is fantastic! (x Your costumes look great, and it's always nice to see cosplayers actually acting out and having fun rather than just posing for pictures. (:

Thank you! We like to be silly and have in character fun a lot more than just static poses, and I'm so glad that works for you.

Bear!Prussia...I choked on my tea at that, seriously XD great cosplays! I'd request something but honestly, anything with the German trio makes me happy. ^^
Nov. 26th, 2010 05:30 pm (UTC)
Haha, thanks!

If you decide you wanna request something, this post will still be here. ;D

Thank you~.

First of all - these are GORGEOUS, you really look like you're having fun!

:3 You take requests~~?

(I think that Prussia should give Austria a massage)
Nov. 26th, 2010 05:35 pm (UTC)
Thank you! This shoot was a lot of fun, actually. We had to cut out a lot of pictures in the end 'cause we kept laughing when we were trying to pose. XD

Yes we are taking requests! As many requests as you can come up with, we will consider.

I will add it to the list! I dunno how we're gonna make that look good picture-wise, but we will do our best.

x3 What I'd love to see is Germany & Prussia bugging Austria more. Seriously, these amazing photos inspire fiction! :D
Nov. 26th, 2010 05:54 pm (UTC)
We can definitely do that.
>w< Thank you! If you do write anything, will you send a link this way?
Nov. 26th, 2010 05:57 pm (UTC)
Oh gott that video! It's just too awesome!!
Nov. 26th, 2010 06:16 pm (UTC)
Hee, thanks. That was one of my favorite parts to shoot.
Nov. 26th, 2010 06:07 pm (UTC)
Great pictures! You all look really good and it's much more fun to see this little "play" than just shoots (even if they're really well done)

Hee, the heart-fail is specially cute ^^

As for scenarios, perhaps some post-Iron Curtain reunions? The whole thing would make a nice Hetalia strip actually... Elisaveta going "screw this!", Gilbert vacationing in the West en masse and then the wall falls yaay \o/
Nov. 26th, 2010 06:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you! We think so too. It's also much easier to organize the dozens of pictures if I'm trying to make them fit a story rather than just posting en masse.

Agreed. They are just so bad at it.

Ooh, I like this suggestion. I know Yagi loves post-Wall stuff, and we could probably find a good Wall stand-in with a little location scouting.
Nov. 26th, 2010 06:29 pm (UTC)
Looking forward to more photo stories then, whatever the topic is!
Nov. 26th, 2010 08:13 pm (UTC)
Aaaaahhhh, this was amazing~ You guys are all awesome~! I would request something if i could think of something thats more awesome than this (and appropriate) but i can't so. . . -shrug- i wish we had more epic cosplayers like you guys where i live~
Nov. 27th, 2010 03:32 am (UTC)
Thank you~! If you do think of anything, this post is open for requests until we do the shoot, so you still have time.

Obviously the solution is to move to the Pacific Northwest. : )
Nov. 27th, 2010 05:22 am (UTC)
aaahhhh, i would if i could but alas i am a lowly highschooler.
Nov. 27th, 2010 06:54 am (UTC)
That does sort of get in the way. But I'm sure there are some cool cosplayers in your area; you've just gotta find the right community for you.
Nov. 27th, 2010 06:57 am (UTC)
Thats true. I have a few friends that cosplay Hetalia, but the countries we cosplay are across the spectrum from each other. America, Hong-Kong, Denmark. . .man we're so out of sync. . .
Nov. 26th, 2010 11:01 pm (UTC)
This made me smile! A lot!!
Nov. 27th, 2010 03:33 am (UTC)
My work here is done. Glad you enjoyed it!

Thanks! Don't forget to breathe.
Nov. 27th, 2010 08:16 am (UTC)
Love them to bits! Great job~ <3

Nov. 27th, 2010 07:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you~.

You guys look like you were having so much FUN. The kind of canon fun specific to Austria, Germany and Prussia meetings. XD

Umm, some silly Gertalia would be nice but I'd love to see anything you guys come up with! :)
Nov. 28th, 2010 12:29 am (UTC)
That kind of fun is pretty much how we do in the day-to-day. XD

We can do silly!
