Costume Information

This is one of my favourite cartoons of all time. I am a huge fan of it and of Tove's original work.
I adore so many characters from this, obviously the Moomins but also the Groke, Thingumy and Bob, the Hattifatteners, Sniff, Snufkin and Little My and Too-ticky.
One of the most powerful episodes for me was the first appearance of the Groke when Thingumy and Bob turn up with a case and hide out in Moomin house. The Groke turns up and just stares, turning everything cold, it's quite suspenseful!
Also since reading the reasoning behind that episode I think even more strongly about it (apparently it's about hiding sexuality from society).

Oh wow, I'd love to see this.
My friend has been re-watching The Moomins lately so I wondered if anyone would ever cosplay her.

Wire?? (Posted 30th May 2014)

Not really got a plan for this, just experimenting at the moment with wire to see if I can make some sort of base shape for the Groke because I am tiny and she is huuuuuuuuge!
