I'd like to be Totoro (from "My neighbor Totoro") but i'm pretty behind, thanks to my procrastination skills. I'm not sure how to go about it- should I make Totoro's body end at my legs and wear tights, or have the costume end at my feet and touch the ground? With the second, it would be kinda hard to walk, but it would look a lot better. Also, how should I make the belly keep its shape? Any ideas are really appreciated. Here are some pics:
