A Japanese illustrator has come up with a clever solution to a cosplay problem.
Many anime outfits can be on the skimpy side. While dressing up as a popular character can be fun and empowering it might also be cold and embarrassing.
Is the solution a pair of beige tights that quickly fade to censored black once they approach the hips?

The tights would help provide warmths and coverage. The beige part, which could be made in any alternative colour, would be designed to match up with skin tones and give the impression of bare legs. The censor touched black shadow at the top would only ever factor in if the cosplay skirt was a bit short.
Anime characters deal with short skirts all the time. Rather, anime censors deal with short skirts all the time.
The effect looks about right to me. What a smart idea.
