I musta taken a hundred shots and they all sucked. Im sorta worn out. XD And just stuck with this one. This is a contest entry for 's Hayao Miyazaki Bento Contest. I really encourage anyone to join up and try. Even if you dont have a bento box, you can just use tupperware and try to win yourself a bento~ :3 SO JOIN.
I chose 'My Neighbor Totoro' because it was the first miyazaki film I saw. I chose the catbus cause its one of the coolest side characters in that movie. :3 Adults can't see it, some kids can. The inside of the bus is as fluffy as the outside and it gives any bullet train a run for its money. It's just plain awesome.

My Neighbor Totoro - [link]Whats in the bento?
The bottom layer are mixed leaves, with spinach noodle cable lines. The reason being is that the cat bus darts on cable lines and trees like mad. :3
The shrimp is encased in little mandarin halves, with picks for the fruit up top.
The catbus is primarily made outta rice that had been fried with a dash of soy sauce to bring the color to somewhat of a brown. The markings are made out of roasted seaweed and the windows,teeth, eyes are made out of cheeses. The nose is made out of a small bit of apple. The whole outer bit of the catbus has been partitioned off with plastic.
The upper portion is allll grapefruit and sprinkled with pomegranate seeds. The side columns are hazelnut wafer straws covered in plastic to prevent it from goin soggy.
