I had a sudden urge to create this post after receiving something in the mail today. I had ordered some adorable Totoro washi tape from an online store over a week ago. Anything having to do with Studio Ghibli will always grab my attention. It definitely made my day to see the designs on them. I’ll surely incorporate these into my scrap booking somehow.
I haven’t been a fan of Studio Ghibli for too long, but ever since I watched my first movie from them a few years ago on Netflix (Howl’s Moving Castle), I loved it and became eager to check out the other films they’ve released. The latter eventually had me purchasing some of the movies on DVD. There’s still a few that I’m missing, but it looks pretty good so far. I do plan to own every movie from them if possible.
If you’re a fan like I am, you’ll notice that I have all of Hayao Miyazake’s films with the studio. His work is simply amazing. What can I say? He’s my favorite SG director! I even attempted to do a cosplay of one of the Ghibli characters. Although the outfit I put together for Arrietty looked great, the large hair clip I tried to make for the costume didn’t work out too well. I could possibly try to have another go at it for SDCC. I’ll think about it. Do you have a favorite Studio Ghibli movie or character? Feel free to let me know.
