Interview with Axis Powers Hetalia Fanart Contest Winner La Tobba

La TobbaThis is another winner for our Axis Powers Hetalia Fanart contest held in last month – La Tobba. She has gotten a sponsorship from – the Axis Powers Hetalia Antonio cosplay Costume. After receiving the costume, she will take photos and share those with all of us. Just expect :P! Below, we make an interview with her.

1. Since cosplay becomes more and more popular, how do you think about the good things and also bad things on this performance art?

I think that there are too many people that take cosplay too seriously.I see a lot of people going mad because their cosplay or their wig isn’t exactly like the one of the character they have decided to cosplay.  I think that it’s not a job but only a way to have fun with friends, so take it easy 😉

2. Do you consider yourself a “cosplayer” year round, or only when participating in certain activities?

I mostly do cosplay during the convention but sometimes I also dress up for fun when I’m home or with friends so… something between the two things.

3. Going to a venue with many people to watch you in costume and simply taking a photograph, which one is more meaningful?

To me they’re pretty much the same thing.

4. Is the creation of the costume or characters more valuable than the actual acting or vice versa, or is it a mix? As well, how much of the do-it-yourself mentality is admired? If someone just bought their whole costume, are they still a true cosplayer?

Yeah if you can identify yourself into your character when you have bought your whole costume you’re still a cosplayer. We’re not all gods of the sewing machine though realizing your cosplay by yourself is much better than buying it since you get more satisfaction and more fun.

5. Which contest theme do you mostly want to see at

I don’t know maybe something related to cosplay music videos.

Hetalia Fanart Contest – La Tobba


Axis Powers Hetalia Fanart Contest

Artist Bio:
Name : La Tobba
Gender : Female
Nationality: Italian
Social Networks: Deviantart, Tumblr

Ok, what do I have to say…I started to read hetalia such long time ago that I don’t even remember.At first I was disappointed because it was making fun of my poor country but some time later I tried to watch the anime and I’ve fallen in love with it. This is how hetalia became my obsession. Now I draw mostly Spamano fanart which is my favorite couple, the bad friends trio and scenes from roleplays with my friends.


Let’s enjoy Fanarts of La Tobba’s!

1. The best friends are the bad ones

Comments from the artist: The bad fem trio. I love drawing those three girls, including their outfits. I used photoshop for this picture but I’ve made the lineart with the pencil.

2. Fantastique+awesome+caliente

Comments from the artist: Bad friends trio and bad fem trio because I can’t choose which version in the best .Again with photoshop ad pencils

3. Good life

Comments from the artist: Pencils and photoshop. These are all the characters played in our rpg.

4. Domani

Comments from the artist: Spain and Romano. Photoshop. The song in the title and in the picture is the one written and singed by different italian singers for the earthquake of 2009 in Abruzzo, Italy that i find very fitting for spamano.

5. Painting Flowers

Comments from the artist: Hungary and Prussia. Another couple I love.Watercolours and photoshop.
