Naomi Yotsumoto didn't belong with the world's elite ping pong players, but she created huge buzz with her cosplay inspired wardrobe at the Beijing Olympics. Thank goodness there is no dress code in ping pong.

Most players decide to dress like jocks with athletic wear, but Yotusumoto takes it to a new level with her outfits. As a result, she is hugely popular with her own TV show and an autobiography. From a fashion impact analogy, she is the Japanese version of Maria Sharapova!
