So yes, it can be quite, quite easy to disguise yourself.
That's crazy, I would think it would take alot more to disguise yourself from someone that knows besides just wearing a wig.

I guess it depends on the person doing the recognizing and how aware they are? Did you get up close to him enough that you could see his face clearly?
