Juggalo face paint also defeats the facial recognition system built into my head.

So does a bag over your head, of course.

Nah. Given the explanation this should work just as well:

Also, found this in an image search and it was too awesome not to post. This guy would surely defeat facial recognition 400%!

Aside; I always wondered if that guy(s) who had to wear the cat face in Kiss felt bad that he didn’t get cool makeup. He was definitely the lamest one.

Which is probably the best of the options (which I’m assuming also include: being a mime/clown, “Cats” cosplay, joining the Kiss Army, looking like you just came from a kid’s birthday party…).

I have a vague memory of a B&W movie from my childhood – probably around 1973, when I was 5-ish. All I recall is that it had to do with a troupe of mimes/entertainers in Paris during WW2. What stuck with me was them being lined up against a wall and shot by Nazis at the end. It scared the crap out of me at the time, which is why I still think of it 45 years later. And this post just reminded me of it again.

The sharp, angular makeup worn by David Bowie on the cover of “Aladdin Sane” is supposedly excellent at defeating facial-recognitionn tech.

But, don’t they wear their face paint in their drivers licence photos and mug shots (pending having any mug shots, I don’t mean to cast dispersion)?

Dare I cast doubts? Show up in public with cog-warez makeup and fool the cameras – but I bet some human cop will be on you right away.

Army taught me about camouflage and concealment. Main lessen: If an enemy notices you, they can kill you. Your goal is to be NOT noticed. Defeat cog-warez with subtle strokes, not bold slashes. Or stay undercover.
