In this video, Adam Savage builds Totoro, the titular character from My Neighbor Totoro. Because Totoro is huge, Savage designs the costume to be lightweight and collapsible. And furry. And adorable. Aw, heck, this is just delightful, have a look at what 14 hours' work can make:

Just as much fun is watching Savage wander New York Comic Con incognito, inside his Totoro costume. He has a camera built into the costume, in Totoro's leaf hat. (Indeed, that's the only way he can see out of the costume; there's no eye hole! He's watching a camera monitor inside the costume.)

The best part? His tiny umbrella.
