(Inspired by Totoro from Tonari no Totoro / My Neighbor Totoro)
|Material||One uncut square of 6 inch kami paper, black on one side and white on the other|
There are 3 Totoros - big, middle, and little. I designed all three, and this model represents the little Totoro. The base for this is very similar to the base for the big Totoro (Big Totoro v1). Differences in execution include that I don't form the smile or the leaf hat here, and the flaps originally used for the arms now form the ears. Of the three Totoros that I designed, I think this one is the cleanest and cutest.
I had also designed a leaf as a prop to accompany this Totoro model..
UPDATE: In 2016, I redesigned most of my Totoro-themed models, except for this Little Totoro model. The new models are: Big Totoro v2, Middle Totoro v2, Umbrella v1.5, Single Leaf v2, and Dicot Sprout.
