> What is kigurumi?

Kigurumi (着ぐるみ) is a kind of costuming where the player wears a full body skin suit (called hadatai) along with an anime mask. The Japanese word "kigurumi" refers to any kind of full-body costume, but in this thread we're specifically looking for anime masks combined with skin-toned bodysuits - properly known as "animegao" kigurumi.

> Where can I find kigurumi pictures/videos?

http://www.animegao.com/ and http://kigup.com combines many kigurumi blogs and sites into a single feed. On pixiv, the 着ぐるみ and 着ぐる絵 tags contain many relevant images. Many Japanese kigurumi players now use Twitter. http://pastebin.com/nYuh4aat contains a random assortment of links.

Kigurumi players often stream videos on http://www.ustream.tv. You can find them by searching for "kigurumi" or "着ぐるみ". http://www.mediafire.com/?xtqkc2yn75u54 contains many kigurumi fetish videos. Don't beg.

> Where can I buy kigurumi masks?

(possibly outdated/incomplete)

A reasonable mask and bodysuit will cost roughly 1000-2000 USD depending on quality.

> Drama?

No. Kigurumi girls have to be cute and friendly, not just in appearance, but in heart as well!
That means there is no porn.

> Isn't it usually dudes who wear these?

Yes.
