View Full Version : Cosplaying Totoro and Friends

01-08-2010, 08:35 AM
My two siblings and I are planning on cosplaying as Totoro and the mini-totoros. This will be the first cosplay for the three of us and we are hoping for the best. I was hoping for some help or methods we could go about creating the main body since I'm not sure what I could I do about the Totoro's mass. Pillow/stuffing may get far too hot to be bearable but I need something that'll support it. We thought of shoulder-pads to support the whole thing in general while remaining hollow inside but how to give off the 'fullness' that is Totoro in a suit. So any helpful ideas on what to do or where we can find some good materials to use would be helpful, thank you~! If all else fails we'll bear the heat of a 'padded' suit.

well if your new to the whole sewing thing you might want to try something a little more simple like:

but if you really wanna do the whole large suit, search for mascot threads or web sites

good luck
