Morning Commute with No Face

February 28th, 2016

I watched  “Spirited Away” when I was in the 8th grade. My best friend, Sean, and I got dropped off early at the theater and after raiding samples at the nearby Whole Foods we strapped in for a subtitled screening of Miyazaki’s anime adventure.

Fast forward 15 years to this past Halloween where my girlfriend, Yoko, was dead set on spending the day dressed as No Face, unequivocally Spirited Away’s best character.

Here’s what I captured of Yoko in costume during our morning commute on the R train from Sunset Park to Soho.
