Attendees of the 2014 Japanese pop culture convention Youmacon were greeted with one of the largest costumes I’ve ever seen. It’s a cosplay of Catbus, the Cheshire Cat-like creature from Studio Ghibli’s My Neighbor Totoro. Here’s deviantART member EmilytheNeko’s first hand account of the cosplay: “THIS CATBUS WAS AMAZING IT MOVED IT WAS HUGE YOU COULD CLIMB INSIDE IT OMFG”
Nerd Bacon writer Sarus Vakarian originally uploaded the image above, while YouTuber Hiro Konobu recorded the video below:
I love that its destination sign says “Youmacon.” Clever cosplayer.
