Anime Character Costumes

As many of you already know, we are Yahoo news junkies and every once in a while, a story inspires us, appalls us, or simply makes us laugh.  This morning's story about a gal from Ukraine who spends hours each day transforming herself into a real life anime character got our creative juices flowing.  For months we have been contemplating how best to showcase the amazing custom anime character costumes but worried that they might not quite achieve the desired look on a real live human being.
