You might have noticed ads or images from the new Facebook App called FaceApp. This App was created a few years ago, but recently got a new boost with images featuring famous TV and movie characters. I bet a lot of you saw these of our TOS pals. The big fun is switching sexes of famous characters or making them old!
Well I couldn’t resist, and I put the app on my phone then played with a WHOLE mess of images from TOS! I gotta say, sometimes it’s astonishing how great some of our friends look here as the opposite sex – especially Bill Shatner, who said of one of his doctored images “I’d do me!” Enjoy!
Let’s start with gender-switching:
I gotta say, Bill has a great face for drag!
How about some guest stars?
Okay, enough gender-swaps! Another feature is playing with facial hair and aging, and some of the results were quite surprising!
Somehow I couldn’t get enough of the beard application…
And now some nerdy college professor types…
Then when we get into Aging, whoa!
FaceApp made a pretty good estimate of the real aged Spock too!
Well, I think I freaked you our enough today…One thing is for sure. We are all beautiful in our own way, male, female, young, old, nerdy, cool, and so on. We are more than what makes up our shell. May you find your way as pleasant! Happy Fourth of July, please stay safe and healthy!
Of course the producers of Mirror,Mirror took a while to decide the best evil look for Spock… They eventually decided on a modified Heisenburg; after all, he is the evil! 😉 My first Toon with my new computer, enjoy, Therese 🙂
The late 1970’s and 80’s were a prime time on TV for the miniseries. With the success of Shogunthere was a rush of other grand adventures created. Here is Marco Polo from 1982. An all star cast included Leonard Nimoy as Lord Achmed – who is sort of good and evil, a bit conniving. (Well, of course he’s evil, look at that beard!) He did well with a moderate part, although he first comes off as a bit…Shatner-esque? (A bit breathless with lots of pauses in his speeches) But by the time his character dies we at least get a feeling for some of his personal traits! Nimoy never got the girl in these movies, and was again relegated to a ‘heavy’ – but hey, he got a free trip to China!

He knows how to wear an evil beard
Polo, You call that a beard?
My beard’s pointier than yours!
Of course I know something about points!
Yes, I always wear this pith helmet
What you say, Polo?
What’d’ya mean this hairdo makes my ears look pointed?
