Whoa, i selected the 'masculinise' version and turned into an exact replica of my dad's HS yearbook photo. That was trippy.

It gives men the option to 'feminize' and women the option to make their face more 'masculine'. It's interesting to upload yourself as the opposite gender and then see what you look like as a more pronounced version of your own gender. The more 'masculine' version of myself was uncanny- could've been my brother easily. There's also a different 'artsy' selection if you switch your gender.

Baby Obama, two wars at your feet
Wonder how you manage to make ends meet
Who finds the money when you pay the debt
Did you think that money was heaven sent


I am so sorry.

Whoa! The El Greco version is hella cool! What a spooky young man I've become!

Damienmce, the original post was 5 years ago, if you can believe it.

Wow, I remember that post. I had a beard at the time...makes for some fucked-up feminizing.

Thanks for the wayback!

My beard makes them all look awful, especially the baby. Ick.

I have the opposite experience, mkb. My beard makes my baby-self look like motherfuckin Hercules!

I used this a few years ago. The "old" version of me looked like my Gramma. I mean just like her.

The origin of the infamous Michelle Obama morph, unless I miss my guess.

Huh. I selected "drunk" and nothing changed.

Seriously, though, the Feminize one looked a lot like my mother. Kinda freaky. Although I couldn't move the mouth oval at all. Did anyone else have that problem?

Ha! I become a dead ringer for Herman Munster. Seriously.

Think yourself lucky, MikeHarris: the masculinised me looks like the young Rupert Murdoch.

The overall net result of feminising myself and then masculinising the result is that my face is spread out a bit laterally.

I seemed to have an immovable mouth oval about half the time.

My masculinised face is rather dashing, albeit cartoonishly so.

I did, but on a whim I tried right-clicking it, and that let me move it.
