These Katy Perry GIFs were put together by Canadian director and photographer Ryan Enn Hughes to complement the music video for Perry's song 'Birthday.' For the video, Perry crashed five birthday parties disguised as random characters dubbed 'The World's Worst Birthday Party Entertainers.' The oddball characters included an over-the-hill Las Vegas dancer and a creepy drunk clown.

The people throwing the birthday parties were conned into thinking they were participating in a reality TV show called 'Birthday Blowout.' Perry only revealed her true identity at one of the parties.

The Katy Perry GIF portraits show the pop star in five convincing disguises -- ranging from the hilarious to downright creepy -- inspired by the five characters.

The images were captured using a Canon EOS 1DC camera, and do a stellar job bringing Perry's peculiar birthday-crashing alter-egos to life. Stats for Peculiar Popstar Disguise GIFs Trending: This Year & Chilly
