In the above photo the Japanese fan’s head has a Daruma figurine with both eyes filled in to denote achievement of a goal.
← Shown on the left is a Daruma with only one eye inked in is a “hopeful” Daruma to help achieve success by signifying their commitment to achieving their goal.

She is cross-dressing as Santa Claus in the true spirit of Japanese Christmas (3Yen / 2013-12-05) as you can see in the close-ups of her.

Well, they did show some sensitivity by spelling coolie* incorrectly.
COOLly does it all!
