I reaaaaallly want to cosplay as Totoro from my Neighbor Totoro. I wanted to make him chubby as in the movie, chubby arms and stomach. My initial idea (as I'm no experienced cosplay maker) failed miserably. If I wanted to commissions someone for this, would it be considered a fursuit? And who does fursuits if so?
Thanks- Lark. c:

Yes and no.
By technicality of it being an anthropomorphous character, it is. BUT, because it is also overly large and based off of a licensed character, it is also a mascot outfit.
You might want to check out this thread (http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=144272) on fursuits and mascot costumes.
Additionally, you might also want to google Fursuit comissions as well and take a look at what is out there.
Keep in mind though:
Good, Cheap, or Fast
Pick any two...
If its Good and Cheap, it wont be Fast
If its Fast and Cheap, it wont be Good
If its Fast and Good it wont be Cheap
