Happy Halloween everyone!! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love dressing up and DIYing, and I love seeing other peoples' creativity! It seems as if more and more people are choosing to make their own costumes every year, and I love it. I've got a few fun Halloween costume tutorials up on the blog: Medusa & Russell from UP!
I love Totoro! My Neighbor Totoro is a Japanese animated fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki. Totoro is a friendly forest spirit. There are actually 3 Totoros in the movie, but I love O Totoro, the largest one. He is one of my favorite characters and I thought he'd make the perfect Halloween costume since he is so recognizable and cute. Halloween taps into my past a bit - I actually have a degree in Fashion Design! So this project was super fun for me...drafting patterns can actually be fun when the outcome is such a cute outfit. Use this tutorial to get inspired - you can use the same techniques on another piece of clothing such as a grey pullover hoodie or onesie :) Let's get crafting!
