hmm..there seems to be a sudden explosion of cross-dressing news around the net nowadays..here is another one from Japanprobe..
The laundromat had a surveillance camera to prevent theft, but the man had a plan: he dressed-up like a woman and wore a wig. Apparently he had even bought fashion magazines to help him coordinate his disguise.
However, somebody noticed missing clothing and called the police to report a suspicious-looking person who was parked near the laundromat. Police used his license plate number to track him down and make an arrest. Inside his house, they found an assortment of stolen clothing.
Japan’s TBS news visits a gathering of otaku in China to report on how there is now a “boom” in the number of male fans who dress up like female anime and manga characters
The cross-dressers were apparently influenced by television shows about otaku who do the same kind of thing in Japan. The publication of a Chinese cross-dressing cosplay manual is cited as evidence of this being a trend. It is also mentioned that a lot of Chinese netizens have criticized the weird activities of these otaku.
