This Halloween I was determined to be more creepy than cutesy, which is my usual m.o. I immediately thought of No-Face from Miyazaki’s Spirited Away. This costume is low effort and high impact, especially since my closet is already 80% black drapey
No-Face is kind of a sweetheart when you think about it, his every move fueled by the desire to win Sen’s approval. He’s not evil, just socially awkward–as he “eats” characters, he takes on and amplifies their bad qualities (greed, etc.) until his baseline personality is gone.
The mask is a paper craft that took about an hour to make (there are a LOT of little tabs back there).
What was your costume this year?
