Make waves at the beach in a high-cut Totoro swimsuit

By Oona McGee, RocketNews24

From wallets to umbrellas, suitcases and mousepads, Totoro, from the Studio Ghibli film "My Neighbour Totoro," has adorned many a cute item in Japan with his huge toothy smile and large round belly. Now the character is loaning his silhouette to the world of swimwear, with a spectacular new swimsuit that, surprisingly, isn’t made in Totoro’s home country.

The clever new design, called “Totoro ‘The Pam’ Onesie”, hails from Los Angeles. The high-cut swimsuit has Totoro looking more cheeky and mischievous than ever, with his huge grin suggesting he’s quite happy with his new form.

News of the Totoro swimsuit has made it over to Japan, with Studio Ghibli fans happy to know that the garment is available for international shipping. The bold design is sure to turn heads at the pool or beach, no matter where in the world you live.

If you’d like to go swimming with Totoro, the bathing suit can be purchased online from the Poprageous website, where it retails for $95 plus shipping.

Stategically places eyes. :) Most Japanese girls would be too shy to wear such a suit which is a real shame as they generally have fantastic figures like the model in the picture.

I can't unsee it. Damn.

I think it's great. Demure yet sexy at the same time. And humorous. Let's see how many women in Japan can pull it off!

None of these are licensed. They are pirated goods from Taiwan.
