Turn Your Cat's Face Into A Wearable Mask

In Japan, a service called “My Family” is offering to sculpt realistic order-made masks depicting people’s family pets.

For example, this is Rui, a Bengal cat that lives in Kyoto.

Looking at reference photos, an artist sculpts the feline’s face, adding fur, which it then colour to match the original markings.

Prices start at 300,000 yen ($3787), plus shipping.

Note that the official announcement via NicoNico News is only in Japanese, and the company handling orders has yet to launch its My Family page.

    Strangely enough this doesn't freak me out as much as fursuits do. (Nothing against Furries, I just get freaked out by the look of their suits, same with theme park mascots) There must be some uncanny valley effect going on.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the dramatic pivot between title and body.
