Thai college uniforms become Japanese cosplay fetish

It seems the Japanese have gotten bored with their own school girls.

For many years Japanese schoolgirl uniforms have been sold at Platinum for Thai girls to wear in the bedroom, and now the Japanese are returning the favor by adopting our own “innocent” version.

Why? Because it was voted the most sexy school uniform in the world in a Japanese poll two years ago. Look at how Rangsit Uni girls rock those tight, see-through white shirts and the black skirts that barely cover anything. How could Japan not take this for itself?

The variety of Thai college uniforms (with different designs and lengths of the skirts) are reportedly sold via an online Japanese shop called Only and One for THB150 – 800, right next to the original AV-style, Japanese schoolgirl outfits.

They’re labelled as “Sailor dress costume schoolgirl college girl uniform cosplay costume AKB,” whatever that means.

We went further and found the site could be selling genuine Ramkhamhaeng University pins. Aww, if only the Japanese knew better.

Meanwhile, wearing college uniforms around Chiang Mai remains a must-do activity for Chinese tourists. Good to see the spirit of cross-cultural exchange thriving.
