I just recently decided to cosplay Kiki from the movie Kiki's Delivery Service and I need some help and/or ideas on how I should go about getting my props-her bow and her broom.

Here is a referance picture:


I am still debating on if I should also include her bag or not.

Thanks for any help in advance!!

Making bows are extremely easy to make so all you would need is material, but you could always buy the broom - but to be honest that wouldn't be very hard to make either - again you would need the right materials in order to do this. And yes I think you should include her bag, every cosplay should have that additional but recogisable item that makes the cosplay even more complete and special. Maybe you should find a Jiji plush? (I have on that I bought whilst on holiday to Japan ^_^ ... Well actually it's that black cat plushie in the cage thing that Kiki had to deliver :D)

On how to make a bow:

There's plenty of easy step-by-step tutorials you can follow on the internet, once you made the bow, attach it to some ribbon or a clip and place it in your hair.

Great choice of cosplay btw and good luck with it ^^

This is the bow tutorial I used for Kiki's bow.


I'd suggest buying a broom, and maybe covering it with extra straw. When buying the broom try to look for one with a wider and longer handle on it so that it will look more to scale.
