Howl in his Bird Form

Photography by the wonderfly talented :iconsorceressmoonblader:

Costume + makeup by :iconarlo-arleh:

Edit started by by :iconsorceressmoonblader: and finished by :iconarlo-arleh:

Finally I posted a picture of my Howl costume!

Ever since seeing the film I was interested in making a Howl costume, so :iconalita-b-angel: and I decided to do a yin and yang double, I did Howl in his bird form and she in his normal form. This has been one of the most challenging, difficult and expensive costumes I have made yet, but oh-so worth it :)

Believe it or not but my skin was too white in this pic, I had to darken my face a little so I wasn't so washed out against the black hahaha

IF anyone is interested you can find the making-of tutorial for both Howl costumes here Part 1 and Part 2

*This is Image14 in :iconalita-b-angel: :iconqueencattabby: and my Dev-a-Day Challenge*

that is some perfectly well done makeup there. people who makes those movies should start using more professional makeup instead of some of those crappy special effects

You guys are fantastic. This is exactly the kind of incredible costume project I always insist upon taking on for myself (monster Howl was actually on my Someday List until people like you kept doing way too good of a job on him) and then spend months in agony, perfectionism-ing myself to death. I loved the making-of writeups, thanks for sharing!
