Last weekend, shoppers at Q’s Mall in the Abeno district of Osaka were treated to an appearance by this (unidentified) middle-aged man dressed in the typical garb of a Japanese junior school student. Unfazed by the public gaze, he posed for pictures and smiled for shoppers who paused to take in his… unusual choice of attire.
Trust your mum when she tells you not to place too much trust in what you see on the Internet. Especially when it comes to photos of cute girls. Who knows, she may be a beautiful boy. Or even, a middle-aged man.
Do you see where this is going yet? Surprise surprise, these sweet-looking Lolita twins are in fact a middle-aged Japanese man in disguise (both are played by the same man), and that’s not all he has up his sleeve! More pictures after the jump!
Photos of a 10-year-old girl posing in her underwear have been causing controversy online in Asia this week, with netizens quick to blame poor parenting and the influence of the media and social networking on children.
In the pictures, which were uploaded to Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, the girl is pictured in her underwear, or sitting so her underwear is showing. Her face has been concealed by Japanese cartoon characters or toys. The photos are sexualised and shocking enough to make a huge storm on social media, but not hardcore enough that the mainstream media won’t print them. The perfect combination, therefore, for a troubling viral hit.

Perhaps you remember Ladybeard from our previous post a couple of weeks ago introducing the cross-dressing bearded pro-wrestler, performer, heavy metal singer and party rocker. Well, it would seem that Ladybeard recently met up with another iconic cross-dresser in Japan, the “Sailor Suit Old Man”.
A hairy burly man and a balding old man in schoolgirl uniforms may sound like an absolute turn off, but they looked so happy, we couldn’t help but think they actually look somewhat cute. Here’s the most epic schoolgirl combi in history!
Take a moment to examine this picture, a typical day at a typical stationery store with customers shopping for papers. This is a sight anyone living in Japan has probably seen countless times before.
However, this girl has a secret so bizarre that – although it’s hard to say definitively –I’m inclined to declare photoshop shenanigans. So come along if you dare. We’re about to take a trip into the Weird People Found on Twitter Zone.
Aaah, skirt lifting! Those were the days! Running through the hallways at school, twanging bra straps, calling your friends “gay” when they admitted to liking a girl…
If only we could bring a little bit of that revelry back into our adult lives without being arrested or shunned by friends.
Well, thanks to creative designer Kaori Kato’s new “Skirt-lifting Calendar”, from the beginning of 2013 you can lift a highschool girl’s skirt as often as you like without ever risking incarceration or bringing shame on your family…
