Gintama Incense Holder Repels Insects, Promotes Elizabeth Smoking
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
One of the downfalls of the summer months is the influx of blood-sucking mosquitoes waiting in the wings to ruin family barbecues and camping trips. Gintama's mysterious Elizabeth also hates mosquitoes, or likes smoking, whichever is up for debate. The Weekly Shonen Jump official store is selling an Elizabeth incense holder specifically to combat the bugs. Once the incense coil is lit, its smoke wafts out of the character's ceramic mouth.
The Elizabeth incense container costs 3,500 yen (US$32). Official Shonen Jump shops can be found throughout Japan. Also going on sale this month are Elizabeth marshmallows (also pictured above).
A Gintama live-action film event was searching for its perfect Elizabeth cosplayer to appear at a preview event for the film in Tokyo on June 28 to the tune of 50,000 yen (US$456). The character has appeared an over-sized keychain and as a pork-stuffed meat bun.
