Howl’s Moving Castle
If you’ve landed on this post, you probably already know all about Howl, Sophie and the wondrous Moving Castle… maybe you’ve even read the book by Diana Wynn Jones….but just in case you need a reminder…. Howl is a Wizard who is under an enchantment, and lives in a castle that literally walks across the countryside. Calcifer, the fire demon, is tied to Howl, and keeps the castle under power. Markel is his assistant, and apprentice. One day Sophie, a lonely hat maker, runs afoul of the Witch of the Waste, and is transformed into an old woman. She runs away, and ends up finding the Castle, and moving in.
Sophie is stubborn, and although she is afraid of Howl (there are some scary stories about him) she stays and becomes the cleaning woman/mom of the house. She learns that Howl is under an enchantment… and also sees firsthand how he is drawn into the war between neighboring kingdoms.
Excitement, adventure, magic and a Basset Hound make this film a wonderful epic… And you can’t help but fall for Howl, and root for Sophie! (And Calcifer is FUNNY!)

Howl Cosplay Wigs
Howls hair changes, so you can choose the look you like.
EZCosplay has a great selection of Wigs…
Howl wears a distinctive pendant and drop earrings… there are a few different interpretations… And then there is the ring. I’d wear that even if I wasn’t cosplaying…
Sophie Hatter Cosplay
Sophie is young… then she’s old… but she dresses a bit old fashioned either way…
Sophie Hatter Cosplay Wigs and Hat
Like Howl, Sophie’s hair changes… from braid to bob… brown to grey… She also needs a hat and boots to complete the look.

There are a few ways to go with Calcifer… you can either carry a small Calcifer with you… or you can go representational. Both are pretty cool…
Markl, Howl’s Young assistant, wears green short pants, a green vest and a white shirt… covered by a huge cape and beard, when he’s in disguise…
Add a white long sleeved shirt and some brown tights, and you are set. Maybe carry the big red spellbook?
