Costumes: Prince Ashitaka

Prince Ashitaka

Title: Prince Ashitaka
Cost: $100

Princess Mononoke needed companionship at the party and my husband volunteered to play Ashitaka. I made the red hood and the rest of his clothing, then fashioned a sword and scabbard from odd bits of wood and cardboard we had around the house. The sword blade is actually a paint stirring stick free from Home Depot!

We applied lots of gross black oily makeup to his arm to simulate the demonic curse-and ended up with most of his outfit "cursed" by the end of the party. Oh well.
