This is my Catbus Cosplay from 2006 Supanova & Animania at Sydney.
It took if you add the hours together about a solid week with no sleep for me to make.
It was so fun crawling around in, but was so hot I nearly passed out at Animania. The mice were fun I made them so their eyes actually would light up like in the movie. I wish I'd had more time to make him though because I wanted to use more & better pictures of totoro in the windows, but it still looked throughly awesome I think. ^^
It won runner up best female cosplay at Animania.
& runner up best costume at Supanova.
