You can’t go wrong with a Studio Ghibli story or cosplay. Alice, a.k.a. Mientowa Props, made a replica of Princess Mononoke’s costume. She started work on the cosplay in August of last year and sculpted the mask from the ground up. She used Worbla for the base of it and also for the spear tip. Though Mononoke’s outfit isn’t what I would call complex, it does involve several accessories and pieces. Alice duplicated all of them, and I especially appreciate how Alice aged and weathered the clothes — not all cosplayers go that route. You can see a couple in progress photos below.
