"Are you alright young master? You looked white as a sheet back there! "
Series: Mononoke Hime
Help: SaraIt was difficult for both the cosplayer and photographer to capture this shot. Not only was I precariously on the edge of the water, i also went home with sores and bruises. It was difficult for Nik to capture this without too much reflections from the water spoiling the picture and also freezing the dynamic water movements. I love how the water danced here!
I only watched the movie recently (last 2 years maybe?) and felt it was such an underrated movie! Probably the least promoted amongst Hayao Miyazaki's work and the one with the least merchandise floating around. But I personally felt it was the best Hayao Movie I've watched as not only was the storyline strong and progressive. The characters, every single one of them were complex, interesting and likable; even the villians ! I also liked how the story which centered around the decline of nature due to mining /industrialism was told from both sides of the coin. Effectively telling the audience the cause and effect of the world and how everythign we take from nature comes with a cost.
So in love with the simple chivalry and strength of Ashitaka *_*
