Even a pair of glasses, can be a clever disguise.
A funny thing happened at Geek Girl Con this year. The first day I went, as usual, in my Batgirl costume, but the second day I went in civvies. In real life I wear glasses (I wear contacts for my BG costume).
I ran into quite a number of people who I’d met multiple times, but only in costume, and it was fun to watch their reactions as they realized who I was. I think my favorite was Bryan Q. Miller. I walked up to him and grinned, put one finger on the side of my glasses, and said, “So, did you recognize me?”
He stared for a moment, then his eyes went wide and he said, “No! I didn’t at all!”
I laughed and said, “It’s the glasses.”
It’s kind of fun, having a secret identity. :)
