    I would have loved it at the end if she had ripped off her mask and hair and was a black dude.

    Working security at a military post we were trying out a new ID card that would link to a computer, and we'd know if the person and their photo matched what we had in our system. A young white woman comes up to the gate, we check the card scanner, the image in the system is an old black man. True story. XD

    Imagine how many disguised people you have seen and didnt notice

  • I used to see a man in disguise quite frequently in public, he would make sure that I saw him, I would nod or smile...as if to say I know you are in disguise....and he knew that I knew.

    Slim Charles the distance of your pupils can be disguised with circle ⭕️ contact lenses, and the height of your forehead: lace front wigs with a low forehead.
