#FindYourGhibliCT competition time!

March 12

Ever wondered around the streets of Cape Town and found yourself in an oddly familiar place, one that seems to fit into a Studio Ghibli film just all too well? That’s the magic of our beautiful city and our love for all things Studio Ghibli and this is where Cosplay Cape Town and the Japanese Consulate of Cape Town need your help! Get into Cosplay and find that perfect spot in Cape Town that resonates with a Studio Ghibli film. Howl’s Moving Castle? What about the beautiful flower fields in the West Coast! My Neighbour Totoro? Don’t the giant Camphor trees brought from Japan in Vergelegen just bring it to life doing its dance under the tree. How about Kiki’s Delivery Service? Kalk Bay with the amazing Olympia Cafe Bakery seems to just fit the film so beautifully!

To enter the comp, find a location that showcases our beautiful city and how it fits perfectly into a scene from a Studio Ghibli film and take a photo in the cosplay! Upload the photo with the scene inspiration to social media (Facebook or Instagram or both!) using the #FindYourGhibliCT and tag @cosplaycapetown so that we can find your entry.

The winner of the online #FindYourGhibliCT will be announced at Japan day and all entries must be submitted by the 9th March.

What can you win? The winner of the online campaign will win an amazing ticket bundle for Comic Con Cape Town, Ucon and Fancon!
