Feel real true horror at full-bodysuit cosplay cafe this July 25th


On July 25th 2009, from 10am to 4pm, Tokyo's Cafe & Bar DiCE! will be turned into a place of terror, borne from the stuff of nightmares. It will turn into Aokazetei, a full-body kigurumi cosplay waitress cafe.

For the fortunate few who are unaware, "kigurumi" cosplay can be best described as mascot cosplay, wherein the cosplayer dons a full-body suit and mask. While the term itself is quite general, covering everything from mecha cosplay to the sorts of animal suits worn by furry enthusiasts, this particular variant concentrates on wearing full facemasks with the design proportions to suit the characters and costumes.

I can imagine it now, a kigurumi waitress approaching your table and asking for your order, the voice muffled by the freakish, dead-eyed mask. Gah! Well...at least they're not inflating themselves.
