Let me introduce you to this wonderful blog I recently discovered: Textbook. The genius behind it is John Jannuzi, who likes giving runway-worthy looks to characters from history, literature, film, and music. You can catch his complete list here.
Here are his posts on some of my favorite fictional and historical figures: Anne of Green Gables, Joan of Arc, Princess Leia, Amelia Earhart, Emma Woodhouse, and Peter Pan. I'm so in love! I actually wish I could include one of his images here, but instead I'll try to take my cue from him and try it just this once, with Sophie from Howl's Moving Castle.
So why Sophie? I've always enjoyed this Diana Wynne Jones book, and I think Sophie's a great (and safe!) choice to try this on. I'm thinking classic romantic and florals, but in bright colors to fit her strong personality.
1) Old Soul
Silk-georgette dress by Giambattista Valli, for those flower-picking afternoons in vintage (not elderly) style
2) Sophie's Choice
Sleeveless printed floral dress by Mary Katrantzou, because now she'll always have magic in her life
3) Mad Hatter
Hat by Yestadt Millinery, since old habits die hard
What do you think? Do these fit Sophie at all? If you could dress any fictional character, how would you do it?
