Does this type of suit have a name? Is it real or only made in-universe? It's from the anime 繰れ! コックリさん /Repeat! Kokkurisan, ep 10.

It is some kind of Mino (蓑), a traditional Japanese garment, a raincoat made out of straw.

    @Oni;Thats one of the points that make me wonder if these are reall or no, this seems too kawaii to be real. – riccs_0x Mar 17 at 21:25

    Googling found a page with images of real straw boots of that nature tokaido.wordpress.com/2007/12/10/… (It appears to be a WP site that linked to an eBay storefront where one could buy the items, but the store links appear to all be dead. With the store defunct anyway, hopefully posting URL of a commerce-related page is ok. If not: Mods feel free to delete this comment.) See also tripadvisor.com/… – Jacob C. says Reinstate Monica Mar 18 at 4:53
