Portrait Series Featuring Creepy Cosplay Characters Known As Dollers

Kigurumi is big time in Japan, with everything from mascots to cosplayers considered part of kigurumi, but there's one form of kigurumi cosplayer who is a bit creepier than the rest- the Dollers.

Some Dollers dress up to live out their anime fantasies, actually becoming their favorite characters thanks to a full latex mask, costume and zentai (spandex body suit). A lucky few actually get paid for their strange cosplay hobby, hired as entertainers for public events.

Photographer Laurie Simmons found herself fascinated by the world of Dollers, expressing her interest in the strange subculture through her portrait series “Kigurumi, Dollers And How We See”.

Laurie's striking images prove that no matter what you think of Dollers they make mighty memorable subjects for portraits!
