Japanese Woman Creates Amusing Cardboard Costumes for Her Beloved Chihuahua


Twitterer Senba, who lives in the Saitama Prefecture has crafted a wonderful series of amusingly adorable cardboard masks and costumes for her beloved chihuahua-mametaro. Senba spoke with BuzzFeed how she came up with the idea.

I gradually started drawing a dog’s face, Mickey Mouse and other characters. …The designs are based on manga, anime/movie characters, or Japanese playing cards…They are things that I like. …Chihuahua-mametaro is cooperative.
