So if you need a last-minute cosplay this Halloween, you can try to make it happen with sandwich cookies and chocolate-covered pocky sticks.

As you can tell, Low Cost Cosplay took their hilarious photo from above to recreate one of Studio Ghibli's cutest icons. After all, Totoro is easy to make out in this top-down photo. The mascot's whiskers are brought to life with the pocky sticks while its fur is textured with cookies. Even Totoro's ears are recreated with the fan's socks while the bulk of its body is made by an illusion. The body comes together with the user's torso and white-grey wig, so you can see why this low-cost cosplay is going so viral. And if you want to recreate it yourself, well - you can get all your supplies at your local Walmart or Target!
