In Japan, there is
a form of theatre seen often at malls and parks called Kigurumi. Kigurumi shows
usually promote different cartoons that are popular on television, by staging
plays featuring the characters. The weird thing is that, rather than just have
actors play the roles, they dress from head to toe in full costumes and
enclosing masks so that they look "exactly" like the characters from the
Kigurumi has a large adult fan-following, and a lot of fans dress up as Kigurumi on their own. It's even showing up in the States.

from Tokyo Mew-Mew, sort of an animal themed Sailor Moon.
