Taking perfection to this level should be illegal.

Ah really?
I remember a thread on LJ a while ago with Swedish and Finnish people saying what the stereotype was of the other, it was interesting to read..
Tino seems very strong on the inside, though, maybe it's overlooked because of the cuteness.

Thank you very much!

Oh, we more or less do already if you look at the stereotype ^^;
Funny thing is though, people from Finland is seven journeys worse than Swedish people actually. I've talked to them and had it confirmed, in Finland they perceive Swedes as talkative sissies who can't shut up and be manly for anything XD
How Tino could come out so cute is beyond me...

Sorry for the ramble, and I think I forgot to say that your photos are amazing. Well, they are ^^;

Beautiful shot of an awesome cosplay.

Though I can't get over the fact that asian people cosplay Sweden, while I who am swedish cosplay China and try to look asian. The irony of Hetalia cosplay. x'D

Indeed. And it would be so epic to gather one cosplayer from every nation cosplaying their own nation. A little hard to do though.
