A full-body doll suit – complete with a wig, a mask and stockings that are patterned with doll-like joints – is loitering around Tokyo, Japan. Dubbed as Lulu the “living doll,” she is turning people’s heads as she crosses the streets or does other things that normal people do.

What is more intriguing is the identity of the one wearing the costume remains a secret. Who knows, the “living doll” can be your favorite dancer, a designer, or a famous model who wants to have a fiction life for the meantime in a real world.

Lulu Hashimoto, the famous “living doll” is the latest trend in Tokyo’s fashion modeling scene.

She was created by a 23-year-old fashion designer, Hitomi Komaki.

Komaki's fondness of dolls led to the birth of Lulu Hashimoto.

“I have always really liked dolls and, for me, the epitome of cuteness is dolls,” Komaki said.

Nowadays, dressing up as a mascot, or what Japanese call “kigurumi,” has become a trend. It is also considered a popular form of art in Japan.

Komaki then took the trend to a new level by creating a body suit that looks exactly like a doll and is able to move like a human.

However, she said, the Lulu body suit will only fit dancers, designers and models.

“Many people call my project a fetish, but for me, it’s not a fetish but fashion,” Komaki explained further.

She said that wearing the Lulu costume is like “wearing nice clothes or putting on false eyelashes to become cuter.”

Lulu’s stockings, which have doll-like-joints, were created by Komaki’s fellow designer, Koh Ueno. He said that he used airbrush to draw the doll-like joints.


Ueno said he is dreaming that one day, women will wear these stockings.

“I want to see women wear these stockings and transform. I want them to experience the extraordinary, to become otherworldly, artificial, or like a doll,” he shared.

Komaki has created Lulu’s social accounts on Instagram and Twitter, which garnered thousands of followers, to show other people her creation.

Here’s how Lulu loiters around Tokyo:

Typhoon Hato did a lot of damage when it went through southern China this month. It triggered Typhoon Signal No. 10, which is the most severe category in Hong Kong's storm warning system. Hong Kong got flooded and thousands of people had to flee to safer ground. It also took out power in Asian casino capital Macau.

After battering Honk Kong and Macau, Typhoon Hato went on to mainland China. Reports said that more than 26,000 people had to evacuate to temporary shelters. One of the areas affected was Yibin County in China's Sichuan Province. Farmlands were flooded.

Behold, the wrath of Typhoon Hato.

A pride is a group of lions consisting of the alpha, his lionesses, his cubs, and possibly a couple of other male lions who recognize the superiority of the alpha. In this story though, pride takes on a whole different meaning when a couple of male lions appear to mate while the lioness looks on - with an understandably baffled look on her face.

Wildlife photographer Russ Bridges was able to take pictures of this happening at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, England. He witnessed one of the male lions going over to the other and pinned him down to what appeared to be an attempt to mate.

He rides on his fellow male lion's back in what looks like an attempt to hump.

Fighting has always been part of human nature and it always means something for humanity, either for good or bad. Of course, the same thing can happen to animals, although more often than not, it refers to survival.

This is exactly what happened between two giraffes. And this is quite interesting because not all people know how these two long-necked creatures fight. We just know they’re among the tallest creatures in animal kingdom.

Just like any other animals, giraffes also resort to fighting.
