Fun Cardboard Cutouts Result in Comical Kitty Cosplay

To celebrate her cat Guagua’s birthday, Chinese blogger toshiya86 created a series of cardboard comic foregrounds for the furry feline to stick its head through and automatically be transformed into an anime character. The clever project has resulted in an endless array of portraits of the expressive cat, paving the way for kitty cosplay.

The carefully composed cutouts allow the cat to pop in and out of characters. From a broomstick-flying witch in Kiki’s Delivery Service to an action hero in Naruto, Guagua’s sweet little face can be seen reinventing popular animated programs as the new half-human, half-feline lead. There’s a variety of characters in the collection, though the photographer’s images do include duplicates of the same cardboard drawings. Luckily, Guagua manages to make each portrait unique with her big eyes and attentive ears. In one instance, she’s a snarling lush and in the next she’s a calm kitty ready to take a nap.
