When out and about in their work gear, office staff and the like are lucky in that they can simply blend in, allowing them to go for a few post-work beers or do a bit of shopping without garnering even a second glance.
Wrestlers, on the other hand, really don’t have it so easy. Like the poor fella below for example. The hat is a lovely touch, and the backpack could well be perfect for carrying his cape, but he’s still not exactly what you’d call inconspicuous.
I think he has something to hide. Shifty!
Maybe. It could be the perfect disguise though. So obvious, no-one would suspect him.
Wow, those conformist Japanese . . . Creepy and entertaining at the same time.
We used to have a “sword guy” in Seattle that was quite well-known. Otherwise dressed and behaving normally, he’d be seen all over town with a sword sheathed al a Conan.
Blimey, he was quite a character, and no wonder he worried people.
I can imagine the sales person..”Shall I wrap it, or would you like to wear it now sir?”.
They were selling similar masks at a UK music festival recently and two guys were rolling
about on the grass near the stall, transformed by their new, or prospective purchases.
No hats or capes though, and I’m pleased they weren’t selling leotards too.
I can just picture them too. Anonymity behind a mask that allows you to behave outrageously. Perfect.
Great shot. The hat really completes it.
Cheers Matt. Yes, the hat really did make all the difference.
Japan Australia says
Yes, great shot, but poor guy can’t even show his face in public.
