Still an animal

Here's your January dose of Japanese crazy, this time from Tokyo-bred label BANZAI. A giant stuffed tiger got it on with a jacket...while a matador watched. I like that the tiger looks to be a backpack at first glance, but is really attached to your back. Interested? The jacket is only available at Ilil in Tokyo right now, but its designer, Yoruko Banzai, promises he is "roaring towards large projects" in the near future so watch this man's blog!

I saw this jacket on his blog but I didn't realize he was actually the designer, must have been a slow day for me...haha. His blog on DropTokyo is one of my favorites, even though I ca't read Japanese the pictures are always hilarious and I love the jacket.

Forget where I read this, but in some Southeast Asian countries, dudes working in the jungle actually wear tiger masks on the back of their heads and it looks kind of like this. The point being to scare off any tigers attempting to attack from behind.

Wonder if they got inspiration from this?
