Japanese manga artists have unveiled their take on how dictators would look if they wore skirts. The likes of Muammar Gaddafi and Joseph Stalin inspired images of moe girls wearing signature uniforms.

­The book “Transformed into Females!! Biographies of World Dictators” published by Ikaros Publications and released on Thursday features works by artists Nisieda, Takeshi and Miki Nonohara who created about 70 images of the dictators.

For example China's Mao Zedong wears wide green shorts and two long braids; Mussolini-inspired character wears a black suit with a short skirt flashing white underwear, Adolph Hitler has no signature moustache but holds a palette with paint and a brush and strikes a cold look.

The book also features altered images of the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi and Iraq's Saddam Hussein, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, Soviet Union's Joseph Stalin, Yugoslavia's Tito, and Sudan's Omar al-Bashir.

Jozef Pilsudski wasn't a dictator.

You messed up the Kim Jong Il one. That was Mao instead.
