Totoro Piñata

DSC00744

The Totoro piñata was created by me and my friend Philip Chan as a fun art project for our friends. We both enjoyed the Miyazaki film so much that we decided to model an entire Piñata after the blue creature. The Totoro was  made out of a balloon shaped paper mache that is reinforced with a cardboard ribcage on the inside. The ears were made using a pair of tissue warped chopsticks and the feet were shaped out of paper cups. The appearance of fur was created by covering the Totoro’s entire body with strips of blue and white paper. The mechanism for releasing the candy was done by pulling a series of pull strings that released a latch holding the belly.
