All I want for Christmas this year. Putting in my order for one of these #6920 'Pretty Santa' models

Cosplay comes in many forms in Japan. When you combine Christmas it can either be very cute or a little too much Rudolph Reindeer.

I went shopping on the weekend at Tokyu Hands in Shibuya and saw these outfits you can buy to dress up and go out on the town. I’m not sure Santa would be wearing the studded leather neck bracelet?

Christmas coming with a bit of a rougher element this year maybe?

    That leather collar is taking it just a little to the extreme. Don’t think santa looks right with it, not a very chilly looking appearence. Should promote more smiles :). Don’t really have a costume to wear. But when my wife and I first moved here, i had a job playing Santa Clause at the local mall. now that was a job. 8 hrs a day, alot of kids, and at that time of the year in tx, temps in the upper 70’s green grass and big blue skys. Really had to portray santa was cold when your sweating, w/just a little fan blowing.

    • That sounds like a tough job. Maybe you could come to Japan and dress up as a Rilakkuma? :)

    I like to dress up as Jack the Ripper, but that’s not necessarily reserved for Christmas :-P
