A street character in in the Fredriksbergsgade in Copenhagen. This street is a part of the well known Strøget (literally "the sweep").
In the WS you can see this man talking to a real Danish Viking, another of those street characters.
Inside the costume here was actually a girl. That was obvious when hearing her talking to the viking.

Makes for a very funny composition. Just a pity that part of her wrist is still visible ;-)

Hi Gunnar. Advertising people and decorators are among the people who constantly have creative ideas. And the man without a face is a really good idea. Somehow, he looks a bit mafia-like. Nice that you have this eye-catching photographs. Regards, Wolfgang.

une scène qui ne manque ni d'originalité, ni de cocasserie. Photo de qualité, nette et très bien exposée et sans doute cadrée comme il le fallait. Il y a pas mal de choses insolites dans les rues de Kopenhavn.
My best regards for a sunny sunday.

Hi Gunnar! Is imaginative your choice of a picture of the artist is impressive and fun roads clever idea!
holmertz (33511) 2010-06-27 8:03
A very attractive and catchy composition with a perfect background. Quite funny. He looks like one of those politicians who are so discreet and boring that they seem to melt into the wallpaper.
UlfE (14453) 2010-06-27 11:21
A really great shot. The invisible man dressed in black is perfect against the bright wall. I made the same trick myself when I was young but I did not call it the invisible man but the headless man. I really enjoy your picture. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!

Good evening Gunnar,
This kind of presentation always makes effect on the spectators. Cheer with this actor, and cheer with the photographer. I like also much the ws, rather funny.
Cut has good evening

The white face is exactly a ghost.
The invisible man dressed in black is perfect against the bright wall
Excellent composition, lovely presentation, pleasant for look at.
Very well done, TFS.

this is very interesting, certainly an eye catcher.
thanks for the added information about it being a girl, as i was wondering how it was done.
