Cosplayers invade the Kyoto subway system to promote upcoming event

These guys—yes they’re almost always men—are kigurumi (Kigurumi-Wikipedia) crossplayers.
This particular subset of Kigurumi are called animegao (animegao wikipedia anime face doller, lit, anime face) or in English “doller”. The animegao’s costumes consist of a full bodysuit, usually in a flesh-tone color, combined with clothing and girlie accessories of a manga or anime character (Wiki).
