Howl's Moving Castle: Wizard Howl by Green-Makakas Howl's Moving Castle: Wizard Howl by Green-Makakas
Progress of the costume on our tumblr: green-makakas.tumblr.com/

Howl's Moving Castle or who the hell doesn't love Miyzaki movies? I can attest to having had my small anime-crush on Howl back when the movie came out. So flamboyant, self-absorbed and childish, yet so... well... nice.Genuinely nice in his childish way.
Anyways, we decided to go back to that and do a Howl cosplay. The place we shot it was magnificent but so freaking cold :(   We froze our asses off with that wind. We're almost always extremely unlucky with weather during photo shoots. Oh well.

Btw, if you have never read the book Howl's Moving Castle that the anime is based on, you missing out on something! It's a really great one and can totally compare to its famous adaptation.

P.S. The photos were taken in a tiny German village. I love my country. It's BEAUTIFUL!

No, I mean it! If Howl was a real person, he probably would have been you! And yes, who cannot have an anime-crush on Howl!;)

Goodness, you make a wonderful Howl, I hope to see more photos. Also, I have always adored the culture of Germany, especially the way that the smaller villages look. I am quite proud of my German heritage. *chuckles*
Das ist sehr schön. (I do hope that is correct, my German is quite rusty).

I know it might be odd, but have you ever attempted cosplaying the Goblin King Jareth? I think you would be Amaaazinggg at it :O

"who the hell doesn't love Miyzaki movies?"... uhm... I don't love them. :P I think most of them are just "okay"-ish... and I even dislike Spirited Away. Sorry for having an opinion you seem to disapprove...
