Yet again proving that you don’t have to be born a girl to be a beautiful woman. (Possibly NSFW)
We’ve seen the rise of “otoko no ko,” boys who dress up as and can pass for very cute girls, in plenty of other Asian countries. It’s old news for Thailand, and in Japan there’s even annual contests held at schools to pick the most beautiful “otoko no ko.”
And now it seems like it’s China’s turn to get on the crossdressing bandwagon. One “otoko no ko” who goes by the name Alica Haoge on Chinese social media has recently caught the attention of Japanese netizens, and it’s not hard to see why. Here’s a sample of the photos available on Alice’s Weibo account:
▼ Just a casual absolutely perfect Kotori Minami cosplay from Love Live!
▼ “Oh hey guys! Do you think this is okay to wear to the beach?”
▼ Are… are we sure Alice isn’t 100-percent girl?
To answer that question: yes, we are sure! Here are some pictures of Alice without all the costumes and wigs so you can see for yourself:
▼ It takes someone extremely confident in their masculinity to be comfortable posing with a teddy bear. Oh, and to dress up as a sexy woman and share the pics online.
▼ Here’s a transformation shot, so you can see Alice progress from boy-mode…
▼ To beautiful girl-boy mode…
▼ To still-somewhat-recongizable-but-pretty-much-girl mode…
▼ And now Alice is an extremely different, and extremely cute, person.
▼ A more casual photo #ProbablyDidn’tWakeUpLikeThis
▼ Just enjoying some time at the beach looking like a character from Dead or Alive Xtreme 3.
▼ “Excuse me, but I’m waiting for someone.”
▼ Oh, uh, sorry for interrupting. I’ll just… wait over here.
While there were a lot of posts of Japanese netizens questioning their life decisions up until this point, many of them were positive. Here’s what some of them had to say:
“This is amazing.”
“Alice looks like a painting.”
“Is this some sort of Chinese propaganda meant to hypnotize me?”
“Don’t care, still hot!”
“This definitely raises my opinion of Chinese quality.”
That’s probably not the only thing these pictures are raising… hopefully they’re raising awareness of other “otoko no ko” in China by giving them all someone to look up to. What? What did you think I meant?
