early cosplay: pekochan


I was lucky to walk by the Ginza Matsuzakaya department store today and spot these Pekochan dolls. These are highly coveted by collectors and thieves, and are usually seen in front of Fujiya cake shops. About 50 figures (not all as big as these) have been gathered together to celebrate the character’s 60th birthday. Wow, she’s almost ready for a pension. The display continues until the 30th.
