Real Life HETALIA by MANGA-ra Real Life HETALIA by MANGA-ra
I know I'm not the first one doing this but I wanted to give it a try.

Days ago I was reading a book and suddenly came across a Franz Schubert picture (the one here) and the first thing I thought was:" Oh, he looks like Austria!" and the fact that he was an Austrian composer made the coincidence even funnier. I wonder if Hetalia's author was inspired by Schubert to make Austria:)

Afterwards, I thought I would try to find real pictures similar to the characters and ended up making this:dance:


Notes:
I really wanted to avoid using celebrities and instead use normal people from each nationality, but:
1. It seems the word "beautiful" or "hot" on the internet is indisputably linked to celebrities.
2. It was difficult to know if certain person was from a determined nationality, so I just decided to use a pic that resembled the character regardless the nationality. The exceptions are Japan, China, Spain and Austria whose real representations are from the corresponding nationality. I guess the guy I used for America must be american too, since most celebrities are. But I don't even know who that guy is...


I found the guy as Russia searching for russian guys on google but later found out he's one of the members of One Direction and form the USA. I don't care about that band but by some comments on the internet I know that band has a lot of haters so I thought of replacing this guy with another one but couldn't find anyone who looked like Russia. Not even this guy looks like him to be honest, but it was either leave him or not including Russia. I guess haters will just have to overlook this.
