Recently I discovered this primo autocrat disguise, so you can give fellow revelers a choice: laugh at your jokes…or quake in fear as missiles are pointed in your general direction.

Saw these at Don Kihote store in Shibuya. If you’d like to be amazed by the weird goods there the next time you’re in Tokyo, a map to all Don Qi locations in Tokyo is on my other website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
