Fake Injury Cosplay Popular Among Geek Girls


These days, otaku don’t just like cute girls–they like their girls bandaged, eye-patched, and otherwise naked. This relatively recent Akiba fetish is dubbed "kegadoru"—think "kega" (injury) and idol—and has made its way into cosplay circles nationwide. It’s actually not a bad idea for a Halloween costume.

  1. I think this stems from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion, with the character Rei all bandaged up. It’s kind of funny when you consider all the strange things that Otaku find as ‘moe’ over time.
