A Tanooki Suit Hoodie Sounds Like a Cute Idea, But The Result Is Kind of CreepyS

Maybe it's me. Maybe it's the model's gleeful pose. Or maybe it's the waggling tail. Whatever the case, this hoodie from 80s tees, is kind of weirdly off-putting.

The "racanooki" top is inspired by the classic raccoon-styled Tanooki Suit that Mario can fly around with in Super Mario Bros 3. Wearers can indeed flap their tails, through the attached drawstrings, but sadly, the garment does not bequeath the power of flight. Nor can wearers turn themselves into temporarily invulnerable statues while wearing it. So please: don't step in front of any cars just because you've got your raccoon-eared groove on.
