As we saw previously on the terror train, anime mask cosplayers, properly called きぐるみ / kigurumi, are generally found by most to be rather disturbing (although it seems not to have stopped a small market for fetish kigurumi porn developing).
So disturbing are they that in fact they warrant another article to give a balanced view of the terror they embody.
The term kigurumi also covers all manner of animal suits and so forth; practicioners of the genre using anime style masks and cosplay materials are apparently also referred to as “dollers”, though from what I can see, the vast majority of anime kigurumi cosplayers refer to their activities as simply kigurumi.
A small mercy.
We are still left wondering about the gender breakdown?
