Otaku cosplayers


I am concerned about these people. 

For those unfamiliar with the term, see the definition of "otaku" on Most otakus are "cosplayers" who like to dress up as cartoon characters from their favourite Japanese anime.

Unfortunately Japanese cartoon characters are drawn with impossibly long legs, tiny waists and huge ... assets. And the women are worse. (Ha! I kill myself!) So when mere mortals try to dress in the same costumes, the results are quite frightening.

I feel especially sorry for the poor "Cutey Honey" girl. (You'll see her as you go through the slides.) She looks very cold. Someone give that girl a jacket before her assets freeze!
