Facebook has novelty apps that do crazy things with your
face like show what you'd look like old, or young, even
what you'd look like as the opposite sex. Weirdest thing
ever said or even thought after trying the "You as the
opposite sex" app was "Wow! I make a totally hot chick!".
of disturbing really. When I did the opposite and
was a gal and turned on the "Make me look like a man" it
was just me older and a little more brutish looking. Try it
you come across it. Interesting and kind of creepy.
So inspired by a company that takes your picture and
you in old royalty or military garb for a price, this one
takes your picture and what you do for a living and
how you would have dressed 400 years ago.
Are you a farmer? Now you drive a high tech machine
costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to harvest your
crops and you probaby wear jeans, tshirt and boots, but
400 years ago you'd dress as a peasant holding a scythe.
Are you a lifelong
politician? You'd be dressed as a lord or royalty. (which I
find disgusting but ok) In the military? What rank? They
ranks back then as well and you'd be matched with the
dress for that rank at the time. Admiral? Sailor? Soldier?
Scientist, author, doctor, cop, entertainer, they had all of
back then and it would be interesting to see yourself or
somebody you know
through the filter of time like that.
||400 years would be a stretch. But many antique
stores have boxes of dusty old photographs,
jokingly labeled Instant Ancestors. Ive never
found myself (or anyone who looked like a possible
relative) in any of those, but once I did spot a
dead ringer in a book of old illustrations ... an
unlabeled engraving, no name or date, but Id
guess it was from between 1860-1900.
||I believe we have lived many lives in the last 400
years and been many diverse beings. My image when
I try and see my past lives shows up as an Indian
Brave, an Eastern Indian woman, I think a fairy, and
perhaps a panther. They kind of come and go and
one day I'm one being, and the next day
||I'd be interested in seeing what 400 years ago I
would have dressed like. Instead of period dressing
as they do here at the Lincoln Monuments here, we
could do that.
