Continuing my new infatuation with humans dressed as life-sized designer character toys is Ilanena dressed as one of his Dai Kaiju Card Monsters from this past weekend’s Super Festival in Japan.
These photos come from @jmrampage, @martinheadrocks & @kaijucornerandy. Andy has detailed coverage of Super Festival #57 over on his blog. Check it out here.
Just what is it about a human in a toy suit that is so compelling? Aw, look: he’s ticklish! Previously: a life-sized Slap Happy by Brandt Peters and a life-sized Nurse Chika by Junko Mizuno.
Here’s Martin Ontiveros with an unmasked Ilanena.
Here’s John Malmstedt of Rampage Toys. This dude moved to Japan to take his toys to the next level. That’s hardcore.
And finally, Ilanena proves that kaijus are just like the rest of us; they put on their pants one leg at a time…
