Kabuking's appearance is based on that of a kabuki actor. Kabuki (which can be translated as "the art of singing and dancing") is a form of dance-drama that originated in Japan in the 17th century, of which the founding is attributed to the miko and dancer Izumo no Okuni. Kabuki can be considered Japan's first form of popular entertainment in history, and plays usually focus on history-based epics and the lives of the common people.
In particular, Kabukiroid's looks evoke the traditional Edo style kabuki, with its extravagant and multicolored costumes, make-up, and imposing mie (dramatic poses struck during a scene's climax).
