Over the past few years, Japan seems to be flexing its muscle on a corner of a market many may have not known existed: super realistic masks. Recently, artists have been showing off ultra-realistic wearable giant cat heads and a service to recreate your pet's head as a giant mask was introduced.

If you're looking to venture outside of the animal kingdom, animegao (anime face) doll mask company Muni Muni Work has some alternatives that may satisfy all your cosplay needs or fuel your nightmares depending on your disposition. Their ultra-realistic anime doll masks offer not just a cosplay asset, but a complete transformation.

Muni Muni Works prides themselves on two particular features of their masks--customization and sense of transformation. The soft vinyl structure of the masks are receptive to makeup and alteration, adding a level of customization to the already "more human than human". They've also paid special attention to the eyes of the masks, balancing an opaque lens that prevents your actual eyes from showing up in photography with unhindered visibility.

You may have noticed a difference in the types of masks--that's because Muni Muni Works offers two varieties--Princess (a type that aims for a hyper-realistic replication of a human face) and Idol (a mask that embraces all the exaggerated facial features associated with anime, such as huge eyes).

See the difference?

If you're looking for an unrivaled anime dollface transformation, Muni Muni Works sells them directly online, as does oddity shop and bookstore Village Vanguard from 18,144 yen to 20,304 yen
