Make Your Own Idol’s Face “AKB48 Oshimen Maker”

“AKB48 Oshimen Maker” is an online tool to make an idol face using facial parts of the members from AKB48, one of the most popular idol groups in Japan.

The word “oshimen” is short for “ichi-oshi member” which literally means “highly recommended member.” It simply refers a favorite member in a group.

The face maker is presented as a promotion of mini popsicle balls called “Ice-no-mi” by glico.
