If I may ask the Admin, how old are you? :3
((Ooc: Haha well it’s simple I’m *truck honking* years old.
Pssst look at the FAQ.))
((Ooc: Hi guys!
All right, I have two small news I’d like to share;
First of, I sadly have to announce a small hiatus again, due to the fact that my contact lenses have gone out of date since while and need to be changed. So I can’t really cosplay Prussia or answer asks >: . I don’t know how long it’ll take until I manage to get my hands on new contact lenses, but just in case it might take a while I prefer to let people know.
Secondly, something much more exciting, next week is Luxembourg’s very first convention! Since it’s not an anime one but rather science fiction and fantasy, I’ll probably get into a female!cecil wtnv cosplay as I can’t afford anything else really. If I see that there are any more anime cosplayers I was planning to go as Gakuen Belarus, if I feel like going a second day that is.
I’m really pumped up for this, it’s gonna be so cool. I hope I’ll manage to make some friends come with me aah!
That’s about it folks!))
Thank you! Because, I bought an Iron cross necklace off ebay a few years ago, and these days I consider it my good luck charm. I wore a tank top to school one day for a band event, and some history teacher stopped me and said "Whatever stunt I was pulling was offensive" XP. I started thinking about it, and I really don't want to offend anybody so...
((Ooc: Aah it’s my pleasure! And well I really don’t know what your teacher was on about, I assure you there’s nothing offensive about them. Maybe if it happens again you could ask them why they think so?
Anyway, I’m happy I was helpful to you! If I could I would have added a few links to some posts that explained it really well too but I am on my phone so it’s hard to link to stuff haha ;; .))
Hi! Quick question for Mun, is the German Iron cross offensive to wear in Europe?
((Ooc: Hi there!
I think I know what you are hinting at. I have seen a lot of posts concerning the Iron Cross and that were basically saying ‘Bad!!! Do not wear it!!! Directly related to the nazi!!’ Which is completely wrong, of course (I think one of these posts has been corrected, though).
Now, for those who don’t know about the iron cross, it is medal awarded to soldiers who basically did an outstanding job in battle. If I am right, it can also be referred to as the Military Valor Medal of Prussia. So yes, it existed LONG before the third Reich (back in the 1800’s). However, it was also used during WWII, depending on the unit and whatnot, adding symbols to it, changing the form slightly, etc. That is why most people still see it as a nazi symbol without knowing its big historical background. Isn’t knowledge fun?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it is still in use today, and also found among bikers/motorcycling.
Now back to your question: It is definitely not offensive, although the military connotations to it might make people give you weird looks. I even have a friend who went to school with it and when her history teacher asked to see the back he laughed and told her it was from the Waterloo battle (which was ironic because they’re from France).
So, again: It is most definitely not offensive. (: ))
I hope you don't mind me asking but do you know of anywhere where I can get cosplay on the cheap? I don't really have extra hundreds of dollars to throw around into buying Arthur Kirkland outfits and make up
((Ooc: Hmmmmm, I remember the only cosplay costume (the Belarus dress) I ever bought online was on cosplayfu.com , so I’d suggest to go look there because I think the price is reasonable considering the quality (I don’t know about the England costume though) . I don’t really know a lot of websites because it’s been a while I haven’t shopped for cosplays… I tink ebay is also one of the options, that’s were I bought all my wigs and so far I’ve been pretty satisfied.
Maybe my followers know one or two more cosplay online shops?))
