Lets try to keep the suggestions fairly reasonable. Keep outrageous & overally stupid ideas to yourself..:)

1. Stick some airport luggage labels onto camera bag?
2. Have folded Spore map sticking out prominently being back pocket.
3.

Look naturally foreign... before the security come and question you, you go to the security guard to ask for directions and speak in a strange accent (either Korean or Japanese if you're Yellow Skinned Asian)

Wear pink shorts, sneakers with long socks pulled up all the way like Sailormoon, a flowery shirt and a round hat.

wear a loud sticker and follow a guy with a flag, speak a different language and act blur when the guard talks to you
carry a language dictionary and make funny sounds and point to the words in the dictionary

guard: excuse me, you cannot take photos here
you: oh! arigato (then you pass the camera to the guard and start to pose)
