How to change your looks
If you have no access to sunglasses, eye colored contacts work wonders. If you get recognized and someone asks you if you are so and so, just play dumb and act like you have no idea who they are. When they see you as the real you, they will see your real eye color, and all doubt will be gone from your mind. Lastly, if you are in a situation where all options are irrelevant the only good thing to do is run. The person could still be suspicious, but if you are smart, and play dumb the next time you're seen, i'm sure you can get yourself out of it.
Good luck with your travels and long live Oscar Wilde!
