A Flock of Zentais
By day, she is a mild-mannered office clerk whose modest make-up and conservative hairstyle allow her to blend in with any crowd.
By night, she dresses in a skin-tight, all-in-one Spandex body suit (“Zentai”) that covers everything — including her eyes — and sits in bars, alone but liberated, she believes, from the judgment of others.
“With my face covered, I cannot eat or drink like other customers,” said the woman, who is in her 20s and says her name is Hokkyoku Nigo (North Pole No. 2).
“I have led my life always worrying about what other people think of me. They say I look cute, gentle, childish or naive,” she said, her lips ruffling the tight, red shiny material.
