What if your face got a visit from magical forest spirits?

If you’ve been in love with Totoro for as long as we have, you probably have some mark of the magical forest spirit in your life. 

Now an artist competing in the Nyx Face Awards 2016 just gave us a new way to celebrate Studio Ghibli‘s famed creature in a very creative form.

Created by Irish makeup artist pompberry, the stop-motion footage took a total of 60 hours to create and record. The theme for this year’s Nyx awards is anime, which as you can imagine is already leading to some very creative entries. If you like what you see, you can vote for pompberry on the Nyx Awards website. While you’re there, you can marvel at some of the other entries. Looks like it’s going to be a tight race! A few other standouts:

Ryuk from Death Note

Colossal Titan from Attack on Titan

Cyborg from Ghost in the Shell

Alucard from Hellsing 

Cotton Candy Princess
