Hideaki Kobayashi: the old man who became a schoolgirl

You have probably seen this man before: that… um… weird man dressed up as a school girl.

Hideaki Kobayashi

Hideaki Kobayashi

His name is Hideaki Kobayashi and he is one of Japans most experienced cosplay photographers.

It all started with an offering at a ramen restaurant. Any person over 30, dressed as a school-girl would get a free dish ramen. Hideaki Kobayashi accepted the challenge and I guess this was the start of his career as a school girl cosplayer. ^^

After this, he started to make appearances as a school girl at many other occasions and became a celebrity when the word was spread via social media. Among other things, he describes this to be a way for him to free himself and he likes being called “cute” on a daily basis. Well, who wouldn’t. ^^

By the way! I didn’t know you could mark with your school uniform if you’re looking for a boyfriend or not. That’s pretty convenient, ha ha. Kobayashi describes this when he is putting on the kerchief.

Here follows a pretty interesting and fun documentary about this man. 🙂
