How to Act Like Kiki from Kiki's Delivery Service

Two Methods:PersonalityBe Like Kiki Directly

Many of us have watched the beautiful movie Kiki's Delivery Service, and most of those who watched it have wanted to be like the brave heroine, Kiki. Here's some tips!

Method 1

  1. 1
    Be confident. Kiki has many flaws as well as good personality points, and that's what makes her a good character. To be like Kiki, confidence is a key part of your personality as overconfidence is one of Kiki's main flaws. So, believe in yourself!
  2. 2
    Be brave. It's hard to be brave, but sometimes you have to just have to shove aside the fear or nervousness and replace it with confidence or bravery to finish the daunting task ahead, like when Kiki saved Tombo from falling off the dirigible.
  3. 3
    Appreciate the beauty in the little things. Kiki often calls cities or towns that she sees "beautiful", so to be like Kiki appreciate beauty in plants, towns, scenery, etc.
  4. 4
    Be helpful. At one of Kiki's stops in her delivery service, she had to take a herring potpie to a spoiled teenager. The elderly women who employed her offered her money without her having to actually do anything, so instead Kiki helped create a fire in the old stove and helped replace lightbulbs to actually earn the money.
  5. 5
    Don't be afraid to make friends. When Kiki meets another witch up in the air, she tries to be friends with the girl who turns out to be a snob. She also tries to be nice to the townspeople, who also snub her.

Method 2
Be Like Kiki Directly

  1. 1
    Have a black cat! If your parents are all up for adopting a cat, adopt a black one as most black cats are left unadopted because of the unlucky stigma around them. If your parents don't like, want, or are allergic to cats, buy a cute little black stuffed cat as a Jiji. If you already have a cat and it isn't black, that's fine too!
  2. 2
    Start an entrepreneur business. The movie is named after Kiki's career, so if you want and are able to, start a small business! You could get an etsy and make jewelry, candles, teabags, bath products etc.
  3. 3
    Make a broom if your parents let you. The best way to make brooms are with hay and straw, along with either a pole from Michael's or a very long polished stick.
  4. 4
    Wear a lot of dark purple, and maybe even buy a cute dark purple dress! Remember that your shoes can be red and that you can also use the signature red bow if you want to. Be wary of school dress codes.
  5. 5
    Be self-sufficient. Be more independent from your parents and attempt to earn your own money, from either step 2 or from getting a job if you're old enough. Don't depend on your parents for everything.
  6. 6
    If you want to, practice witchcraft. There's lots of tumblr communities for it, and plenty of wikiHow articles.


  • Don't let anyone let you down.
  • Be helpful.


  • Be prepared for people calling you a witch.
  • Some people may say you're too old for watching Kiki or the rest of Studio Ghibli, ignore them.
