Anime cosplayer burglar arrested in Fukuoka Pref

In the current otaku culture boom, there are more opportunities than ever for fans to cosplay. Aside from major anime-related conventions like the twice-a-year Comiket, there’s an increasing number of local events that allow fans to dress up as characters from their favorite animated series and movies.
But Tetsuya Fujisawa is doing what he can to take cosplay to a bold new venue: home burglary.
The 37-year-old Fujisawa, a resident of Iizuka in Fukuoka Prefecture, has been arrested and indicted on charges of breaking into a home in Munakata. At the time of the break-in, which took place on Feb 6, Iizuka was wearing an "Evangelion" cosplay outfit modeled on the plug suit uniforms the anime’s mecha pilot characters wear. Underneath that he had on a woman’s one-piece swimsuit and black tights.
? Looks like an anime convention booth, but it’s actually a public display of police evidence.
