My time-travelling mugshot

To mark its new crime show 'Copper', set in New York City in 1864, BBC America has created an awesome 'mugshot yourself'' app.

Just put on your seediest glare and stare straight into your webcam - the app lets you choose your look (the beard and jaunty homburg worked best for me) and add a personalised ID plate.

Turns out I suit being a criminal in 1864.
