Season 6 Episode 10 - START

I write this post with a sense of satisfaction that the show ended with such an amazing finale, but a tinge of sadness as there will be no more disguises to share. However, we can all be pleased that not only was the finale excellent, but our main trio each got one last new wig before the final curtain.

 Not sure Elizabeth in a ball cap counts as a disguise, but for the finale I’m leaving no stone unturned

 I can’t tell if Philip is just sad or if this is contempt in his eyes that Elizabeth gets Paige while he has to leave Henry behind

Season 6 Episode 9 - Jennings, Elizabeth

Second to last episode and they are still giving us great new disguises. Please forgive the low quality of some of these photos, but I had to share Elizabeth’s big moment and Philip’s quick change in progress. The basketball court shot was one of my favorites in the full run of the show.

Paige gets a bit more practice, Philip shakes the rust off, and Elizabeth just gets spread even thinner.

Season 5 Episode 6 - Crossbreed

A couple new looks from Elizabeth this time and maybe the worst Philip disguise I can remember. It’s amazing to me that from one disguise to the next, Elizabeth sometimes looks like a completely different person. Her face even looks like it’s a different shape in the last two photos.
