A Comedy of Errors is all about the comic potential to be found in the mistaken identity of identical twins.  The Cultural Wednesday household have our own comic storehouse as the junior CW’s are identical twins.  “How do you tell them apart?” is a question that we are often asked.  Photo recognition software is not so easily fooled and usually identifies the boys correctly.  When we visited Shakespeare’s Birthplace one of the boys tried on this mask only for him to confidently electronically identified as his brother!

    What a fantastic mask – and a great little story to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

    Love how the mask confused the photo recognition software and that is a wonderfully cheeky smile below it! 🙂

    Great mask, so colourful. And I love that it confused the software 🙂

    I used to be asked all the time if my triplet boys were identical, not so much now as they look very different. Photo recognition can be fooled then with a mask.

      We were asked twin questions constantly, you must have a good store of triplet ones!

    I love the colours in that mask. Freya would have wanted to bring it home 🙂 How funny it confused the software. #MySundayPhoto

      We’ve just taken our extensive mask and dressing up collection to the charity shop. Sad day

    Great mask. Must be fun being/having identical twins. Lots of opportunity for mischief

    Great design on ythat mask. My husband has a twin and this is what they play the most as a kid, being each other! Not so much now as they grew up looking so much different from each other =P
