College student Melanie wanted to be Totoro for Halloween, and she decided to go full throttle with the idea. The result is this elaborate and adorable costume.
Melanie’s mom did most of the work since she can sew, and it apparently took several hours to complete. This isn’t surprising given the size of the outfit! Totoro is still getting use after the holiday, too. He lives in Melanie’s apartment and gives great therapy hugs. I sort of want one for my house.
