Doppelganger | Celebrity Look Alike Generator

Filed in Gather News Channel by on January 31, 2010 0 Comments

In a recent fad started by Facebook, everyone is in search of their doppelganger. What is a doppelganger? Well, by definition of Wikipedia a doppelganger is:

In the vernacular, the word “doppelgänger” has come to refer (as in German) to any double or look-alike of a person. The word is also used to describe the sensation of having glimpsed oneself in peripheral vision, in a position where there is no chance that it could have been a reflection. They are generally regarded as harbingers of bad luck. In some traditions, a doppelgänger seen by a person’s friends or relatives portends illness or danger, while seeing one’s own doppelgänger is an omen of death. In Norse mythology, a vardøger is a ghostly double who precedes a living person and is seen performing their actions in advance.

The definition left me feeling kinda freaked out. I don’t know if I’m excited or nervous to find my doppelganger now. But here goes.

The first set of results below are mine from MyHeritage. However, I don’t think I really resemble any of them. And so therefore, I retried it all over again with a different picture of myself a few times. And here are the links to my other look-a-likes:

Anna Kournikova (famous tennis player) look-a-like.

Jessica Simpson (famous singer) look-a-like.

 

 

And here is my results using the Celebrity Twin2me iphone app.

I tried this app out with three differnet photos that had a variety of hairstyles. And each time I was pretty happy with my results. What makes this application stand out of all apps is that uses more of our core facial features to render results as opposed to many that are based solely on your current hairstyle.

 

 

If you too, want to jump on the Facebook bandwagon & join in on the fun, it’s fast, simple and free at Picitup.com or MyHeritage.com. Or if you prefer the ease of using your iPhone, you can check out the awesome doppelganger finder in the app store called Celebrity Twin2me. It’s only 99cents and seems to render the best results of all generators I have tried. And as a plus, you can link the app straight to your Facebook account and select from pics you already have saved. I loved this feature because I didn’t feel like touching up my hair and makeup right then to get my results. I just chose my current profile pic to get results fast.

You can then post your results to any of your social pages and share the fun. Just a note, MyHeritage.com wants you to install a toolbar before you can use the morph feature. I hated to, but eventually did. And nothing bad has happened to my pc.

 

Have fun and if you wish, feel free to leave your celebrity look-alike photo in a comment! I’d love to see which celebrities (look a likes) are reading my articles. lol.
