Cosplays: No Face & Casual Conan

My version of No Face, based on a drawing I drew in January:

Casual Conan cosplay from Detective Conan:

Melonpan

Do you have a jewelry item that you always wear, even when you sleep? These two bracelets are those items for me. I am not sure why I always wear them to be quite honest, but I feel… calm with them.

I revisited a café – the last time I went was in 2017. I had the Totoro melonpan and iced matcha latte.

Toxicity in Spirited Away’s Bathhouse

Toxicity in place is one of the themes I found most prominent in Studio Ghibli’s film, Spirited Away.  I believe that No Face is the embodiment of a person’s personality and desires. The characters in the bathhouse are toxic because they are driven by greed, so when No Face eats the characters in the bathhouse, it becomes this monster who acts and consumes food in a very uncivilized manner.

When No Face later goes to Zeniba’s cottage, No Face acts very different. Now that No Face has a purpose and is in a place with kind people, it can be the best version of itself. No Face doesn’t need to “eat” anyone because it can be itself.

I think this theme is very important in our lives because I’ve seen people change both in personality and appearance – in the clothes people wear and how they resemble the people who inhabit those shared spaces. A place can be the home environment, school, the workplace, the community, your friend group – it can be a lot of places. If you feel that the environments you are currently in are not good for your mental health or are impacting you in ways that you don’t like, I urge you to think about if the place is fit for you, and if leaving the toxic environment is an option. Some food for thought.


I wasn’t sure of No Face’s gender (I don’t believe it’s identified in the film) so I’m not sure if I should use he, they, or another pronoun. Please feel free to enlighten me and I can change the post to make it better. Thanks. 🙂

I’ve always wanted to take a cos photo of my shadow.

I hope you guys like these! I do have a photo of my Seven cosplay from Mystic Messenger but I’ll do a blog post after I have more photos. I’m thinking of doing Seven again with his beloved honey butter chips. ^^
