No Face Costume by JoyKodani No Face Costume by JoyKodani
Hmmm... just where does one submit a costume in DA? It's an Anime/Fan Art sort of thing, but it's not digital art or what you would call traditional art... doesn't really fit under any of the "artisan" categories... Sculpture?... nah... so let's just go with "miscellaneous"...

Anyway, this weekend was the the big Anime Weekend Atlanta convention, and my 14-year-old daughter wanted to go as No Face from the movie Spirited Away (one of my personal favorites!). After a lot of mental calisthenics, I came up with making the mask using a sort of papier maché material, and added about 5 yards of black fabric, plus some cardboard and a LOT of duct tape to create a sort of helmet to hold the mask up over her head. Her face is actually peering through some black mesh right under the chin of the mask. The whole thing was just under 7 feet tall when she put it on.

This was our second year attending the AWA, and it was pretty fun, but we couldn't walk 20 feet without somebody stopping us for No Face's picture, or coming up to hug him/her or ask if he/she had eaten any good frogs lately. As the designer and engineer, I was pretty proud, but it was really just fun for me to watch my kid having so much fun with her two best buddies (who went as Kisa from Fruits Basket, and Lee from Gun Grave).

Now I gotta figure out how I'm going to build a Totoro costume for next year!

This is absolutely amazing! My brother and I plan to go as No-Face and Chiriho for the Dubai Comic Con next year! But if I may ask, how long did it take to build the whole costume? Also, how did you attach the mask to the fabric??

OMG! IT IS AMAZING! I WISH MY MOTHER WOULD LET ME MAKE COSPLAYS! I have been wanting to cosplay him for a few weeks now, so I was hoping you'd be willing to tell me how you created it all. It would be a big biiiig help if you would.

Thank you so much, and you're costumes are amazing! Your fantastic at making cosplays and your daughter must be sooooooo happy!
