Adam Savage Dressed as Totoro at New York Comic Con
Adam Savage is an enthusiastic cosplayer. He’s dressed as a number of characters at conventions. Cosplaying allows him to express his creativity and walk around incognito. For his first New York Comic Con, he decided to dress as Totoro from My Neighbor Totoro. Savage and co. built the costume in a single day. This video posted on Tested shows what it was like for Savage from inside the costume. Totoro is an adorable, cuddly character and it’s fun to watch everyone gleefully react to him. A number of people come up and request hugs. Aww.
The beginning of the video shows a common cosplayer problem — a part of the costume breaking right before you’re supposed to put it on. Watch Savage solve the issue on the spot before he dons his Totoro ensemble.
