Totoro, Totoro, Totoro!!
I think that I've mentioned my intention of doing a photo booth at K's party. I made this Totoro hat as one of the props.
We will probably use K's Christmas hoodie for one of the props as well.
I also made this pinata for the Totoro birthday party. Three things are commonly said about home made pinatas: they are quick, easy, and cheap. Easy and cheap are true - quick...not so much.
Pinatas are a lot of fun to make and the party-goers always enjoy smashing them so even though it is time consuming, it is a win-win in my book (especially since it is fun to photograph the smashing process).
This is a sample of the party favor bags I made for the party. I made eight but we just added a guest so I guess I will make one more (I just hope I kept my template). I roughly used the instructions I found on this site.
