Uniform Guide: Belarus
This is a listing of outfits worn by Belarus in Hetalia: Axis Powers. Changes made to them in other adaptations, such as the anime, are noted where applicable.
As a child
Belarus is shown as a small child in Russia's flashback in Russia's Big And Little Sisters. In her youth, she wore a long blue dress, which is tattered due to the rough times she and her siblings were going through. She also wore a white bow in her hair.
An earlier draft of young Belarus shows that her hair was much shorter and raggedy while her bow was tattered.
When Belarus made her debut in the strip Meeting Of The World, she wore a long-sleeved black dress with white collar and cuffs, a matching black bow around her neck, and a bow in her hair. Her hair was also drawn somewhat shorter and colored light brown (along with her eyes).
In the anime, her dress was slightly changed, and a waist apron was added (to resemble her blue dress); also, her bows were changed to navy blue. She appeared with this color scheme again in Episode 37 before her clothing colors were corrected.
Belarus was also shown from behind in Fly, Canada-san, Fly!; in addition to her hair being shorter, she appeared to be wearing a full apron with her dress.
Military Uniform (Soviet Union)
Though she has yet to wear it in a strip, a sketch shows that Belarus's military uniform includes a deep-green jacket with black collar and cuffs and a matching, long skirt. She wears tall black boots, black gloves, and a black bow; she has a shoulder strap attached to her belt (which is slung over her right shoulder).
Common Clothes (Dress)
Belarus is usually depicted in a deep blue or purple dress with long sleeves, white cuffs and collar, and white apron worn over the waist. This dress was given to her by her brother, so she tries to wear it as often as possible. The apron has a black-and-white striped waistband and is tied into a bow at the back, while her skirt is shown to have bows at the bottom. She wears a navy bow around the collar of the dress, and a white bow on her head. In some sketches, the bow is attached to a headband (while an early draft for Belarus showed her wearing a plain headband). Black tights and "Mary Jane" shoes complete her outfit.
In a concept sketch, Belarus wears a long sweater and skirt along with a dress shirt and tie beneath the sweater. She also wears black knee-high stockings, loafers, and a dark hairbow. Her sweater bears the World Academy W crest. A later concept sketch shows her without the sweater with her skirt as a jumper. Instead of knee socks, in this picture she wears gray tights and mary jane style shoes.
For the 2011 Halloween Event, Belarus dressed as "something like dark" of Alice for the former Soviet nations' Alice in Wonderland group. For this costume, she wears a black hair bow in the place of her usual white one along with a short sleeved black dress that comes down to just above her knees with a white apron over it and a black bow on her right hip. Occasionally, there is at least one red spot on the apron, though it isn't clear what they are. Underneath is a skirt patterned with gray vertical stripes and columns of spades, hearts, clubs, and diamonds as well as gray and black striped tights with the same symbols on the thighs in gold, though not repeated(in several images, they are accidentally shown to only be hearts.) Around her neck, she wears a black collar that does not appear to be attached to the dress. She also has short black gloves that come up a little past her wrists. She has black bows tied in front on her ankles that are possibly a feature of her black high-heeled shoes, preventing them from slipping off.
