Please help me with this very important question!

Ever since adopting my dog Pepper about 3 years ago, I've always wanted to dress her up as a cluster of susuwatari for Halloween. I think this year is gonna be the year- it should be pretty easy, just some googly eyes, a few black pipecleaners, and some star-shaped candies.

Susuwatari:

My dilemma is how to dress her big sister Biscuit! Any suggestions for fun/easy Ghibli movie costumes? Obviously I would prefer something from Totoro or Spirited Away, since those are the only two movies with susuwatari. But I'm open to anything! I'm thinking tentatively, the Cat Bus, but definitely soliciting additional suggestions.

Here are my ladies, for reference- obviously when we do an Adventure Time costume, Biscuit will be Hot Dog Princess!:

So, any ideas?

I have nothing useful to add, but just had to comment on how supremely happy they look. The dogs are so cute I almost missed the amazing view in the background.

I think she looks a little like Chihiro. How about a white/green striped shirt and pink shorts? Her ears even look like the front of Chihiro's hair where it hangs down from her ponytail. Just a thought!

Yes, and then you can tell her to "hurry it up, Chihiro" in an impatient voice.

You know, the more I think about it, Cat Bus would really lend itself to her long doxie frame!

Although I'm definitely leaning more towards Catbus, I realized she could also do a pretty good (horizontal) No Face, especially with her little white face!

This is a huge dilemma. Cat bus is more recognizable and totally adorable, but Haku-dragon is so cool.

I might just have to make both :shrug:

I was going to say Haku dragon... but Catbus is also a good option. It is tough.

I can't wait to see your ladies in their costumes! Eee!
