Cosplayers are often criticized for using too much Photoshop for studio pics. Eyes are made slightly bigger, waistlines are made smaller, and the end result doesn't reflect reality. Yet, they do—just an idealized human reality.

Then, there's cosplayer Hiiro, who's been going bananas with Photoshop and mixing human features with anime ones. In the photos, Hiiro looks more humanoid than human.

Hiiro, a huge anime otaku, cosplays as both male and female characters, but recently has been focusing more on female characters.

Check out Hiiro's official blog as well as Japanese site Kinosoku for more photos.
