Yes, that is indeed Col. Sanders in front of KFC in Japan, dressed as a maid.
I came across a similar photo while looking at a Japanese snack review blog. On the same day, one of my friends PMed me a link to a photo of the Colonel in yet another costume. I knew I had to delve more into the matter, so I simply Googled “KFC Japan”. The results brought me… such great joy.
I can understand them dressing him up in a happi to add cheer during certain occasions like festivals…
The watermelon prop is a nice touch. Going by that and the yukata, this must be from around the time of the Summer Festival.
I cannot imagine what time of year would be appropriate for friendly neighborhood Spider-Colonel. But I am not complaining.
Col. Halloween Medley! He is a Vampire Phantom Pumpkin Lord!
Shinsengumi Captain Sanders (with a rather oddly-placed sword)
And now it gets weirder…
I almost thought he was dressed as Gurren-Lagann. For what occasion do you think this is for?
…National Prawn Day?
It seems to be a popular costume for him.
Is he a samurai or a water tower?
Watch out! He can hold a sword!
This next one is my absolute favorite…
Colonel Sanders as the Evangelion Unit-01, from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion. Brilliant. Ridiculously brilliant.
