What is a good rebus puzzle, using words or pictures or a combination of both, where the answer is Leprechaun?

A picture of someone with leprosy and a picture of a con man.

For movie relevance, to make it easier, use a picture of the guy from Life of Brian requesting "alms for an ex-leper" and Robert Redford in The Sting.

Or Ricardo Montalban from Star Trek II.

LAP + ROE [perhaps a picture of a shad next to the roe so it's clear what it is] + CAAN [a picture of James Caan, not visibly in a role]

Alternatively: LAP + ROW [someone in a boat] + KHAAAAAAAAN! [Ricardo Montalban in costume]

Forgot to mention: LAP would be a closeup of someone's lap.

What kind of audience is this for? Adult or child?

For an adult audience

Everything I know about rebus puzzles I know from Classic Concentration. I believe standard rebus for "con" was a picture of a guy in a striped prison outfit. "Rec" probably would have been a smashed up car or something ("wreck"). Not sure about "lep", maybe "leapt" via someone jumping, -t?

LIP [on a mouth] + ROK [Al Roker - "er"] + KHAAAAAAAAN [could alternatively use the famous still of Kirk shouting this]

What do you call an annual event for people suffering from a disfiguring skin disease?

LeperCon.

In the style of Cryptic crosswords...
