There’s a fad sweeping Japanese Twitter accounts right nowmwhich involves putting scrunchies (elastic hair ties covered in ruffled fabric) around the waists of girly figurines to make it look as though the characters are on the brink of a panty shot. The scrunchies sit much like a skirt, but billow as though affected by a strong breeze. This method works especially well with figures wearing bathing suits.

Or so we’re told. As it turns out, running a tag search on Twitter for figurines sporting scrunchies doesn’t necessarily reveal the risqué sort of results that one might have hoped for. But honestly, everyone should have seen this coming…

Japanese news blog, Jin115, recently gathered a collection of Tweets wherein the burliest characters ever to be molded into plastic were dressed in matching scrunchies to act as skirts. The results are down-right hilarious!
