Howl's Moving Castle by kirawinter Howl's Moving Castle by kirawinter
So many people love my grandmother cosplay, I am even envy xDDD
Also many of you asks why Sophie doesn't have Howl. Ok, she have.
Ahaha, originally I made both costumes all by myself, and only in 1 week. The hardest part was
Howl's coat (or how can I call this thing?), when I sewed together all that rhombs,
I thought my head will explode X_X I am not a seamstress and don’t visit manual training at school (I’ve draw and write for school newspaper, lol), so I really hate to sew costumes. But I think that the only way to have costume that have good quality and look a proper way – it is made it by yourself…
Ok. Main part of this picture, that I am a cosplayer here, not a photographer xD

Anna Vasilyevna (she is my grandmother!) as Sophie Hatter
Me :iconkirawinter: as Howl
Photographer – run.

I have always loved Howl's Moving Castle, and this is the most beautiful cosplay I have seen to date. I am impressed that not only are both costumes well crafted and immaculate, but both models portray the characters that they are meant to in an almost perfect manner.

Your grandmother is an amazing lady, I'll tell you that!

I am impressed with the small details, such as the ribbon in Sophie's hair, and Howl's jewelry. The colors are vivid, much like they are in the film itself. I would love to see a vertical shot of both costumes so that I can get a head-to-toe impression. (If there is one, I will go looking!)

Overall, this is a job very well done and I look forward to more. I knew EXACTLY who it was from the thumbnail, so the impact was perfect and drew me right in. Great work. <3

Absolutely brilliant. The background suits what you are wearing and how you are both standing.
Blurring out the trees was also a good effect to go with how you both stand out.
The sky is nice and clear for the photo to.
The trees make a good effect also. maybe try not to blurr out to much or that could be your downfall.
the way you have made your cosplay outfits it wonderful. you have gotten both of the characters down to a tee.
Both with how he acts and stands and how she acts and stands to.
Good luck with your other cosplays in the future.
