Character: Sophie Hatter
Series: Howl’s Moving Castle
Worn at: Anime Boston 2012, FanExpo 2012
The decision to go to Anime Boston was completely last minute, and I didn’t know what to make. When my friends said they were doing Princess Mononoke, I decided to make the star of a different Ghibli movie. I’d been meaning to make Sophie for a long time, and this was the final push to finally do it. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any good photos at Anime Boston, and I didn’t have the right wig, so no one knew I made it. Thus the decision to wear it to FanExpo.
