There are so many great friendships and relationships in Studio Ghibli films! Coming up with Studio Ghibli Cosplay for couples is easy and fun! The best part? These couples costumes aren’t necessarily gender related… and unlike a lot of other cosplay these days… you get to wear actual clothes (instead of a bikini made from scraps of neoprene and roadkill). (Sorry, I have issues )
Think outside the box a bit! Kiki and Jiji, Ponyo and Souske, Anna and Marnie, Howl and Calcifer, and the list goes on! Imagine the fun you will have! Let me show you how easy Studio Ghibli Cosplay can be! Then you will be ready for your next Con, Party, or even Halloween!
Studio Ghibli Cosplay for Couples
Many of these costumes can be purchased entirely, for others you can by bits and pieces to accessorize clothes that you may already have. Think about how deep into character you want to go… or if a decent representation is enough for you!
Kiki and Jiji
Kiki’s Delivery Service is one of my favorite all time films! Kiki is easy… simple black dress, bright red bow. Jiji is a cat, ears and tail with a black outfit should do it!
Kiki and Tombo
Kiki and Tombo become best friends because of their love of flying! Kiki needs the boring black dress… Tombo gets a striped shirt and glasses! (Don’t forget the rolled up jeans!)

Howl and Sophie
Who wouldn’t fall for Howl? Mysterious and beautiful, yet.. full of himself! Luckily Sophie is strong and independent, the perfect match!
Howl and Calcifer
Calcifer and Howl are entwined by an enchantment that Sophie must break. Meanwhile, they are together…so why not use that idea as a cosplay for couples?
Marnie and Anna
When she is sent to live with an older couple by the seaside, shy and friendless Anna meets the mysterious Marnie. Who is she? And why does she keep vanishing? This is such an amazing film about friendship and finding yourself. For Marnie, an old fashioned nightgown and a blond wig… for Anna, blue tee-shirt, burgundy shorts, and short black hair.
Totoro and Mei
Mei is a cute little girl who wears a red jumper over a white puff sleeved blouse… and tops it off with a straw hat. For Totoro, you can go big costume, or sweet dress…

Sheeta and Pazu
Sheeta falls from the sky, and is caught by Pazu. Together they deal with bad guys, an evil uncle and pirates trying to find the mysterious Castle in the Sky. You can either get a plain blue dress for Sheeta, or pop with some color! Red Harem Pants, Yellow Turtleneck and Red Headband. Don’t forget the amulet! Pazu is simpler… Blue pants, white shirt, brown vest and a hat… maybe even aviator goggles!

Nausicaa and Teto the Fox Squirrel!
Nausicaa’s best friend is Teto the Fox Squirrel, so it makes perfect sense to cosplay them together. Nausicaa wears a blue caped outfit… and of course, Teto has a soft tail and cute ears. Complete the look with a brown body suit.
San and Ashitaka
Ashitaka is cursed when his village is attacked. He goes for help, then he and San get embroiled in a war over the fate of the Forest in Princess Mononoke. San is a fearless warrior in Fur… and Ashitaka wears a blue kimono with red hood.
Ponyo and Sosuke
Ponyo loves Sosuke as much as she loves HAM in this adorable retelling of The Little Mermaid. To recreate Ponyo, you need a red dress and red short wig… for Sosuke, simple shorts and a t shirt will do. Don’t forget his captains hat! Then you can be Ponyo on a Cliff by the Sea…
