“You never know what you might get when old friends from out-of-town drop in. Thank goodness that even after that stint in the nut house they haven’t changed much and are still wearing a squirrel mask in public.”

Who is that cheerful man with the adorably double-braided beard and why is he dressed up as a Japanese schoolgirl? Kotaku’s Brian Ashcraft has the scoop: This is Hideaki Kobayashi and he’s known (and rightfully so) as “Sailor Suit Old Man.”
Recently, Japanese sites and Twitter users in Tokyo have spotted an old guy dressed in a sailor style school uniform—a truly unusual sight to behold. People were amused. People were baffled. What the hell was going on?!
Japanese site IT Media met Kobayashi and asked him the question on everyone’s mind: Why do you dress like a Japanese schoolgirl?
“That’s a difficult question,” said Kobayashi. “It’s not really something I’ve thought too deeply about. Hrm. I guess it’s because sailor suits look good on me?”
We hope Mr. Kobayashi has some inkling of just how awesome he is. We can’t stop smiling as we look at these photos. Head over to Kotaku to learn more about “Sailor Suit Old Man,” our new hero of Japanese weirdness.
A Redditor named Tillamook spent his day off from work making these incredible awesome giant cardboard robot arms.
“Spent my day off putting together cardboard robot arms. A day well spent.”
We couldn’t agree more. Next we’d like to see Tillamook and a friend facing off while both wearing a pair of these amazing appendages. Giant cardboard robot arm battle!
Imagine our delight when we realized our favorite Chap Hop (rapping in a faux-Victorian style) performer, Professor Elemental, had used our Creepy Horse Mask in his latest video. Trigger Warning! Features a gorilla in a horse mask.
If you enjoy this song, try putting on some Fighting Trousers.

In fact, according to this happy customer, his corgi specifically asked him for a unicorn horn after hearing about them at the park. So the word is out on the street: Inflatable Unicorn Horns for everyone!
