If you haven't heard of cosplay before, here's a quick explanation: you pick your favourite character from a film, TV-show, or video game, and then dress up as them. Simple.

Some people think cosplay is a little weird. For others, it's harmless fun. Either way, one pet owner has come with a new type of dress-up that all cat lovers will appreciate.

Kitty cosplay!

The unnamed man, from Tokushima Prefecture, Japan, spends all his free time crafting hand-made cosplay costumes for his kitties. And he has a Twitter account to show off his adorable creations. It currently has over 16k followers.

Most of the costumes are based on characters from movies created by Studio Ghibli. The Japanese film company is best known for its animated feature films, including Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle.

A 'purr-fect' idea

All of the costumes are made from scratch, and social media followers are often amazed at the intricate designs and attention to detail. But it took this creative kitty owner years to master his art. Posting on a cosplay message board, he wrote:

 "It was repeated trial and error for a long time!" 

He's now planning to select 12 of the best costumes for a 2021 kitty cosplay calendar. Sounds like a 'purr-fect' idea!
