So I completely forgot about posting this @w@;;;;;; This was meant to be posted around New Year but I guess I never got down to it.
Coda asked why Roma is in a dress when she saw the W.I.Ps of this, and so I’ll tell you guys a little story behind this.
Back in the old days, from about mid 16th century till the late 19th, or even the early 20th century, it was completely normal for young boys and girls to wear dresses. This process for boys is called unbreech. When they’ve reached a certain where they’d stop wearing dresses and switch to actual boy clothing. This time it is called breeching. This could vary from the age of 2 up until the age of 8. For poorer and lower class family who couldn’t afford clothing, it could last until working age. I think somewhere, it is mentioned that someone didn’t breech until they were 18.
The reason for this process is, and this is where I laugh for how relevant it is, potty training, or the lack thereof. Dresses and gowns were easy to undo, unlike the complicated fastening of many Early Modern breeches and trousers.
I have seen that one post going around tumblr where they also talk about this topic, but I can’t find it for the life of me even though I liked it on both accounts. If anyone knows where it is please link OTL
More info on breeching can be read here.
After learning all this, it was inevitable that I would paint unbreeched Romano, because how could Spain not have like a dozens paintings of Romano throughout his house in various fancy dresses and gowns?
Note: If anyone dare deleting any of this after I spent all that time typing, I will cut you.
Look at me attempting at ‘quality art’….
I was trying to draw chibiromano and somehow this happened ahaha. Teen!Romano… ish? I’m not too sure about his outfit, but oh well. Still looks fancy on him, yeah?
I blame everything on this song…. because I wasn’t going to draw anything hetalia for Euro 2012. BUT LOOK. WHAT DO WE HAVE HERE? 10. FREAKING. HRS. OF THE SAME SONG. ON. REPEAT. ADKJAGFJHA.
How do you tag this w/out getting people mad…?
Was today somebody’s b-day in the Hetalia fandom?
I’m just kindding.
So I basically deleted the entire layer of this and repainted everything.
That’s how I
fail work everytime….
Akdhfajgfdksajh I KINDA HATE THIS SONG NOW. Listen to it over and over and over and over and over again… SOB.
A parody of this, just incomplete and I don’t know if I’m gonna finish it or not, please tell me if anyone want me to, I’ll probably will sometimes into the summer…. Either way, if you would, READ BEFORE watching the link, thanks :D
And yes, this is one of the reason why I haven’t been able to answer asks properly because THIS VIDEO. And SPAMANO. AND THEN THERE’S ME IN THE CORNER WITH ALL THE FEELS.
Please tell me if I got the lyrics wrong and I’ll fix it because I’m an lazy ass and won’t check it myself… Anyway. Enjoy~
Yay~! Leaving incomplete stuff on both blogs! 8D
