Dress up like a foreigner


I once bought a set like this to dress up like a Westerner. The product description says: "Hi! I am Michael", and you get a big nose and two blue eyes (sticker to stick on the eyelids), so you can look like a Westerner. I also bought a blond wig at that time.

Japanese people are not generally known for understanding irony or sarcasm, but everyone thought it was funny that I (being blond) had a blond wig and blue eyes (my normal eyes are grey/green, which counts as the same since the split is more like brown or not brown) and a big nose (my nose is already "big" by Japanese standards) to look like a Westerner (which I already am).
