I love creating diaper themed galleries and inspiration struck last night once I realized that there are WAHM’s making Studio Ghibli inspired cloth diapers! My husband introduced me to these magical movies in college. I remember Kiki’s Delivery Service was the first he showed me. Years later we watched Ponyo with my oldest son and I just recall seeing his amazement at the film. They’re not all suited for children but I know as my boys get older we will share more of the movies with them. I was able to find several diapers themed after the movies of Studio Ghibli that I wanted to share! Keep in mind that often these diapers are custom creations so they might not be in stock but I’ve linked the creator’s websites in order for you to get in touch with them.
A Ponyo diaper was a must, and while I couldn’t find any that featured Ponyo this diaper from Comfy Bum Cloth captured the beauty of the seaside town perfectly. Comfy Bum Cloth on Facebook. (they have incredible Mario and Zelda diapers in their past gallery too!)
Howl’s Moving Castle doesn’t get left out thanks to this diaper featuring Calcifer. TheAlbinoSquirrel on Etsy
Thanks to this amazing fabric from Spoonflower (you can buy it by the yard too!) Sassybumz has made many custom hybrid fitteds that have the many magical characters from Studio Ghibli films, including My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, Whisper of the Heart, Princess Mononoke, Ponyo, and Arrietty. Find Sassybumz on Facebook.
A DDL gallery isn’t complete without a Bunzuke diaper. I’m always amazed at their ability to have a diaper for everything geeky I dream up a gallery for! Totoro is a popular theme. Bunzuke on Facebook.
The diaper that inspired this gallery features a Totoro embroidered on a Little Butt Diapers creation. These diapers are nearly impossible to get but you can find the stocking updates on Facebook.
TheAlbinoSquirell is a fan, as you can see here is another Studio Ghibli inspired diaper, this time, featuring a Totoro face on the bum. Find it on Etsy.
Painting cloth diapers can be a way to get just the theme you want, that is, if you have the artistic ability! Sarah Jean Seipe painted this Totoro diaper for her personal use.
And to close us out is this incredible scene painted on a diaper by Elise Megan’s husband for their personal use. Everything about this diaper and photo says “awww.” If you’re wondering how painted diapers hold up to washing she said “After a few washes, it looks more like a watercolor & so much more like a Japanese landscape. Just like I was going for!”
Have you seen other Studio Ghibli inspired cloth diapers around the web? My search didn’t come up with many so I’d love to see them! You can also leave your idea for a themed gallery that you’d like DDL to do next in the comments!
