Spirited Away is one of my favorite movies of all time. The themes of knowing a person, despite what appearance they have, is something that resonates with me. As well as the idea of a person growing from tough situations. It’s an amazing film. Touching, emotional, humorous, and so, so sweet.
I had the idea for a Chihiro casual cosplay for the longest time. The only problem I had was finding jersey knit fabric in that shade of pink (it’s sort of salmon or coral, I think). When I finally did find something that would work, I crafted a maxi skirt. I paired this skirt with a knit cardigan I bought. This more-or-less suggests the idea of Chihiro without actually looking exactly like her.
For Haku, I started with a blue gauze skirt to resemble the bulky pants he wears. Under a white shirt, I wore a purple tank top for the purple sash he had tied around his waist.
For both outfits, I accessorized with a beautiful bracelet I received from a friend. It says, “Embrace the Journey.” Fitting for these two characters.
