Howl = TEH HOTNESS. He is so hot that I am actually tempted to crossplay. And I *never* crossplay because I am totally unconvincing as a guy. *lol*

I look forward to seeing people's costumes! The only one I'm kind of tempted by is the bird version, because it would be an interesting challenge, but I'll probably never get around to it. :P

[QUOTE=Sarcasm-hime]Howl = TEH HOTNESS.[/QUOTE] AGREED~! XD (It's amusing because I have at least three people on MSN that mention Howl [and his hotness! or <3], and then four entries on my lj friends list that say how sexy/hot he is XD)

I got bored today so I started making a giant beard for old man Markl. Out of yarn. ^^;

I was wondering if anyone knows where to get good ref pics from the movie? I can't seem to find any (and it's kinda hard starting a costume without reference... ignoring that beard)

Ah, haven't been this excited about cosplaying a character in ages. (Yay for Howl and Markl~)

The only place I've seen decent screenshots is on the Howl LJ (moving_castle IIRC).

[QUOTE=Duncan]You know, I just had an awful thought.

Since Disney is distributing Howl's Moving Castle, and technically AX is within Disneyland territory....is this going to be Kingdom Hearts all over again? Will I have to get a special badge?![/QUOTE]

I know they made a commotion over that back at AX2003, but I'm not sure if there were any problems last year. I don't recall any problems with any KH cosplayers (or anyone cosplaying Chirio, Haku, or No-Face from "Spirited Away") last year. But you raise a good point about HMC cosplay this year at AX.. hmmm..

#20 Duncan on 13 years ago

That's true, Al. Yet since it's especially close to the release date...I wouldn't put it past em.

#21 Hitori on 13 years ago

I'm so happy to see so many people interested in Howl cosplay!
As of now, I have done the Howl bird form (can be seen in my gallery), 90 year old Sophie (has not been worn, prostetics take so long to put on -_-), and "Happy ending" Howl (also not worn yet)

#22 Hanyaan on 13 years ago

Hey, guys, now that there's an OMGACTIVE THREAD FOR HOWL (I may just die, I'm so excited), does anybody have any hints or links on how to make quilting points line up properly? I have most of the quilting done for the front of the diamond coat but enough fabric and time to try again, and none of my points are perfectly lined up; they're all slightly off. Nobody I know well does quilting (except someone who I won't be able to see in time to finish the coat), and I just can't possibly have a bad Howl coat. That would just lose.

#23 Hitori on 13 years ago

Hanyaan Faery - Aaah, I wish I knew how to put it into words~ I learned to sew by quilting. Maybe I can show you?

eta- Mmmkay, thinking how I can use words instead of showing.. my only hint I can think of is pin EVERYTHING thouroughly before sewing.

I checked with Lionel and he said there should be NO problem with people walking around & cosplaying characters from HMC. :) I wonder if there are other people who are (secretly) planning to do HMC cosplay this year at AX or Otakon.. :angel2:

Hitori: Your bird/demon Howl looks great! :D Again, I wish I was at Wondercon this year to take pics of you two. Perhaps you'll wear it again sometime (like at JTAF or AnimeDestiny) along with HYF. I forgot.. what does "Happy Ending" Howl wear at the end?

Has anyone seen any Sophie cosplayers yet? I'd like to see pics if there are.

When is Anime Destiny? I need to wear Birdy Howl at a local con, because of the wings. And preferably a mostly outdoor con, because I'm allergic to the feathers!

The ending outfit is black hair, pinkish shirt, white pants and shoes, and a blue brooch. He wears it for.. maybe 5 seconds in that ending sequence. As the ending song comes on.

As for Sophie, I'm hoping to photo shoot my 90 yr. old Sophie soon~! I don't know that I'd want to wear the fat suit + prostetics at a con. It could be troublesome.
And there is a really cute Sophie cosplayer here on the galleries, if you do a search for Howl.

#26 usagi_lee on 13 years ago

I know a lot of u are past it (i guess) but i cant waite to see it lol.

I am not going to cosplay Howl's moving castle but I am cosplaying chihiro from Spirted Away. :heart:

Anime Destiny should be back at the UCBerkeley Campus again this year, and I think the con-chair told me they plan to have it on Saturday, November 5th. That's the date they're shooting for, so we'll wait until the summer ends before the Fall arrives. I saw HMC again and looked for Howl's ending outfit.. hehe pink looks cute, but I don't think you'll see too many people cosplaying THAT version of him, since his white-shirt attire is more recognizable. :)

#28 Hitori on 13 years ago

Ne, I bought the fabric for my Howl Ingary uniform and was about to start on it when I thought, I could use my wings again! But I'm not sure, so then, opinion? Them black wings sprouting out of my Ingary jacket? Would that be too... spoiler? Or would it be pointless unless I do the claws ect as well?

Forgot- I got Anime Destiny confused w/ Tales of Anime, thus I have not been to it before, what sort of setup is that con? I'd love an excuse to wear Birdy Howl again, but I really need to be in open areas (preferably outside) in that outfit or I'll break out and get all red and well, that's not very Howl like now is it?

#29 phantomthief on 13 years ago

Jumping on the bandwagon! Er... castle... Does that work?

And Hanyaan-san, quilting is a pain ;.; I'm working on the same coat for the wide release... WHY HOWL!? WHY!? Stupid diamonds XD
Ooo... 2 days to go... *runs off to work on it*

*runs back* Erm, what did you use for the jewelry??? (Pendant, earrings, and ring?)
