Cosplays are a fun activity to do, and with all the colourful dresses it gives the positive vibes of creativity. There is a tribe in Africa (yes Again) that performs cosplay in their daily lives with strange tradition of coloring themselves. The women in the tribe are famous for rubbing otjize on their bodies, otjize is a mixture of ochre and butterfat. According to them, the red symbolizes life and colour of this world.

There is another very important reason for this strange tradition; the Himba People believe that the mixture protects them from the harsh sun rays. So, these ladies out there have invented their own sunscreen. So this strange tradition has its own benefits.

Not a tribe, but indeed a weird strange tradition. The young girls in Indonesia get their canine teeth filled flat; the villagers believe that it is for blowing away the evil spirits. The ritual is centuries old, the girls and boys are expected to pray two days before the strange ritual is performed on them.


The sugar cane is placed on their mouth to keep the jaws open while the villagers get hold of these young boys and girls. The strange tradition has gradually become a fashion trend in the village.
