Lum in various costumes...

more masked and costumes play from japan here. you find a pretty huge collection of 'lum' mask with cool costumes along with some zentai suits too.

if you've not seen the anime series it's a popular and long running one from the early 1980's (195 episodes!!) that spun off info several films.

"Ataru Moroboshi, the world's most lecherous, unlucky, and unfaithful teenager, is randomly selected by invading aliens to defend Earth in a one-on-one action against their champion.

The alien warlord's daughter, Lum-chan, is Ataru's opponent and he has 10-days to just grab her horns. Ataru's girlfriend, Shinobu, promises to marry Ataru if he wins. When Ataru finally does win, he happily states that now he can get married. Lum interprets this as Ataru proposing to her, so she accepts. Now he is engaged Lum and she won't tollerate any cheating.

Shinobu isn't happy about the situation either. And to make matters worse, Ataru's male classmates are all in love with Lum-chan. What's a guy to do?"

The series creatorTakahashi Rumiko went on to make long running InuYasha, Maison Ikkoku and gender/panda swaping when wet Ranma 1/2.

Lum has always been one of my favorite, even if she is an "Obnoxious Alien". Now to only be like her.

Inspiration galore! Both to Be and to play with.

The more I think about it, the more I wouldn't mind looking like Lum. Now if I could only fly and shoot lightening out of my hands--

the mask is pretty close to what a Bratz would be like. so how and where do you get a Bratz or My Scene barbie mask made? and can you add locks ;-)

In the realm of roleplaying games, it was one of the reasons I loved Cyberpunk: in the game your character could actually get bodysculpted to look like anime characters. It was even said in one of the books that someone got 'sculpted to look like Lum and later got a job as a "dancer". Fun, fun, fun.
