How's this coming along?? Will you be wearing it to MCM Telford? As I'm hoping to wear a Princess Mononoke cosplay so maybe we could have a photo together ^^

I haven't actually started this yet, as I've been busy making my friend's Howl costume, as he's going to be doing this costume with me, though he'll be Black haired Howl in Blonde Haired Howl's costume :p But i'm hoping to get started on Sophie tomorrow, and indeed i will be wearing it to Midlands. Any chance you have a sister who's going as Ponyo? Just i was talking to someone who said their sister was being San :p

Well in a way it's a good thing I suppose, I'd rather see lodes of characters I like :P and I like whoever I'm cosplaying ofc! I am also excited, make sure if you see a Mononoke that you go say has a 50/50 percent chance it's me and if not then at least you have been speaking to their sister :P
