Totoro was the requested character this year. My wife takes on the thankless job of constructing the body of the pinatas while I decorate them after it dries.
What do you do when nearly all of the party attendees (sadly) aren't familiar with Totoro? Why, you take a cue from the old interwebs and do character mash-ups!
Below is a Totoro Clayface, Spider-Man and Iron Man.
Followed by a Totoro Batman, Hulk and scientist wearing a birthday hat (as requested by the birthday girl)
