Princess Mononoke was the first Hayao Miyazaki movie I ever saw when I was little. It was also the first time I ever saw anyone’s head get chopped off on screen. It was a cartoon, but it still left and impression. Then Gladiator came and blew all that away in terms of ridiculous violence.
Anyway, it remains one of my favorite films, and I thought we’d start the week out with this fabulous tribute cosplay from Aventurine. In a few of the shots, she’s supersized Samoyed pups to look like giant wolves, which is sort of hilarious. And her mask is quite cool as well. Be sure to check out all the photos below:
