Studio Ghibli have officially announced their next two releases, to be in theatres in 2013. Hayao Miyazaki’s ‘Kaze Tachinu’ (The Wind Rises), and Isao Takahata’s ‘Kaguya-hime no Monogatari’ (The Tale of Princess Kaguya).
I saw her walking down the stairs and away from the convention center on Sunday at Anime Expo. For those of you who do not know, she’s cosplaying as Sophie from Howl’s Moving Castle. I asked to take her picture and she happily complied. After, she told us that it’s hard to her to find cosplays because she’s in her eighties.
This woman is over 80 years old and she’s cosplaying, going to conventions, and being amazing.
Props to this wonderful woman for her wonderful cosplay and time.
THIS LADY WAS WONDERFUL
Any person of any height, gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity, etc. can be a cosplayer. If you desire to do so, then follow your dreams. Major props to this lady, and major props for having good taste in anime (and books)!
