OK we’re not sure how this works, but apparently some Japanese folks are so desperate to escape the stress of their jobs that they’re dressing up in full-body suits like this one:

This craze has a name: Zentai. The people who practice it say that it is a wonderful escape for people in a society that demands conformity.

There are about 3,000 Zentai right now. One of them said this:

“My family is conservative. They like me to be quiet and feminine but in secret I wear all over tights and let loose,” she said.

This is a little weird, but hey, whatever works. We think it’s cool and the suits are beautiful and this is a big win.
