From Howl to Sophie, we’ve got some of the most gorgeous Howl’s Moving Castle Cosplays to light your fire!

Studio Ghibli is among the most loved of anime creators. From Princess Mononoke to Ponyo, there is a heart-wrenching story for every person to love, enjoy, and sob over. Among the most well-loved of the Ghibli properties is Howl’s Moving Castle- the story of a girl, who becomes a granny, who falls in love with a family on the move… and helps everyone learn about love and trust in the process.



Anime characters are particularly hard to cosplay, since most often their features are exaggerated and elfin, and their costumes gorgeously nuanced. These cosplayers manage to capture the spirit and mystery of Howl’s Moving Castle Cosplays beautifully, and leave an unforgettable impression on viewers.
