Chinese beach-goers are covering up from head to toe in morphsuits and face-kinis in a variety of colours and designs.
Appearing more like the superhero from the violent 2010 comic book movie, Chinese beach-goers are opting to cover up from head to toe in skintight suits and are wearing what are dubbed face-kinis.
But they’re not looking for trouble; they are just trying to avoid the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays.
While westerners slap on fake tan to look sun-kissed, the Chinese prefer the porcelain look. And the suits are also handy for protecting them from insect bites and jellyfish stings.
Face-kinis first appeared a few years ago made from scraps of material found around peoples home.
The craze has hit the shores across Qingdao, north-east China, and masks are being made to meet everyone’s tastes in a variety of colours and designs.
After bikinis and Borat’s man-kini, what kini is next?
