Hayao Miyazaki has a pretty spectacular — and often absurd — imagination, at least if the weird, wonderful characters in his Studio Ghibli films are any indication. But what would these bizarre creatures look like if transported into the real world? Andrew Michael Golden, whose work we recently spotted over at io9, attempts to answer that very question by transmogrifying those beloved characters into flesh and blood (er, sometimes). Click through to see the results, and then head on over to Golden’s website for comparison photos and even more transformations.
