Tokyo Cosplay Photography: Howl's Moving Castle

When Christina told me that she was working on the costume for Howl from the Studio Ghibli film Howl's Moving Castle (ハウルの動く城) and planning to finish it in time for cherry blossom season, I was ecstatic. Having rewatched the movie not long ago (for possibly the fifth time; it's my favorite Ghibli film!), the magic of this story and the charm of Howl were still fresh on my mind. When we met up on this beautiful sunny day and Christina unveiled the costume she made - unbelievably gorgeous. She is so talented!! Not only did we have an unexpected field of yellow flowers and still-blooming cherry blossoms, the sunset light decided to be amazing for us. It was such a wonderful experience working together with Christina to bring the character of Howl to life. (She did all the hard work, really!)

Be sure to check out Christina's other work on her Tumblr blog, Twitter, and Facebook!
