That's a cute idea for a Totoro-themed costume, Dancing Vampire! I like that a lot!
I'm pondering a mascot-type Totoro costume for next year. My thought right now is to make a bodysuit, build up the round Totoro shape with foam, then put the fur on top of that. But this is still just in my head - I've got to worry about my costumes for THIS summer ^_^b
