Would You Snuggle with a Walking Dakimakura?

I would. Maybe. Hm.

 In retrospect, I can't believe it took this long for someone to do this: some clever Japanese otaku decided to take his (I'm pretty sure it's a dude) dakimakura hug-pillow case and wear it as a costume, becoming an instant walking anime girl.
 
 
Some moments in the video are actually pretty cute. And the music's pretty good too, actually. Enjoy~ (via Alafista.)

not too form-fitting ;) the effect is pretty funny nonetheless.

If that's not a walking hazard, then I don't know what is.  The guy bumped into a traffic cone!  It didn't look like he knew where he was walking, he could have accidentally walked out into the middle of the road.

@JD: I guess it was the cameraman's job to keep him safe!
 
@AURON570: Yeah, but man, how awkward would it be to, ahem..."tent" up? >_>

I'm incredibly disappointed that no one hugged him/her/it.
 
But that, that's deliciously weird/creepy/awesome.

Dig Deeper into Dakimakura

Dakimakura is a portmanteau of "dakishime" (hugging) and "makura" (pillow). They are body pillows featuring (mainly) female anime characters and are meant to snuggle with.
