As we all know, Gen wears a color-changing mask in his alternate costume 1, but it has occured to me that no one really knows why it changes color. Here’s a little gem for all true gen fans to know; the mask doesn’t actually change color, because they are different masks altogether. Perhaps if you have noticed, the expressions on his masks might be different. This is an ancient “magic-trick” used by Chinese performers who perform in Japan, but rarely would you see one in America.
It’s called the art of face-changing, and here’s a video of a real-life performer in action:
(notice the similar black costume and hat that Gen wears in his alt costume 1)
The face changing starts at about 0:25 seconds, so you may start watching at 0:20.
At 0:25 he switches to Mantis mode lol.
No true Gen fan until you know this. :tup:
