instead[or with] of accesories covering parts of the face,but leaving features in the same places with the same proportions; a bendy sheet of plastic to cover the face and have a hall of mirrors effect, except with refraction

       Would the effect be similar to the one in Predator, the Arnold movie c. 1988?

       I was woried this would be a badly thought out method of hiding using mirrors or something... this is better even if it does end up being priced out of the market by those cunning socks...

       Spectacles do this to a limited extent.

       Sounds similar to the scramble suits in Philip K. Dick's "A Scanner Darkly".   

       Ah I love that book.

       If I find another halfbake, does that make it full-baked? I'm thinking of the 'field effect' or 'Heinleiner' suits in John Varley's SF. (See: 'Steel Beach' for examples.

       It's more like three-fourths baked, assuming no correlation between halfbakings.
