In the spirit of Halloween and what we can only assume is a desire to scare the bejeezus out of its shoppers (in case the taxidermy doesn't do the trick), some very creative people over at jewelry brand Alexis Bittar have created blinged-out Donald Trump mannequins for eight of the brand's store windows in New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Washington DC 

The oversized heads are made from papier-mâché and the hair was sourced from Trump's barber (just kidding on that second part). The presidential hopeful is dressed in a suit covered in dollar bills, custom made from a costume shop, and heavily accessorized with Alexis Bittar bangles, cuffs, necklaces and earrings. A representative for the brand calls it "a salute to the absurdity that is prime-time American politics and to The Donald’s larger-than-life persona." It is truly a site to behold. 

The Donalds were installed on Thursday and will remain until Nov. 16. Knowing the jewelry designer's penchant for charity auctions, we wouldn't be surprised if at least one effigy is eventually made available for purchase. Wouldn't he a perfect addition to a guest bathroom?

You can see the spiffy Donalds in Alexis Bittar windows at the following locations: Broome Street, Columbus Avenue and Madison Avenue in New York; Newbury in Boston; City Center in Washington, DC; Venice and Hollywood in LA; and Oak Street in Chicago.
