There's not one answer, because there are different degrees of faceblindness. It depends on the viewer.

yeah, I'm one of those people who wouldn't be able to recognize them, if all they did was change their hairstyle, or clothing style.

I've been known to not even recognize my own brother while meeting him on the street, unless he's got his dog with him.

Also, context, I'm really bad at recognizing people out of the context I associate them with.

Sure, except that the point of the mask is to keep your identity secret from everyone. If the (say) 20% of the population with good recognition skills will immediately identify you, you're not going to wear the domino mask.

By way of analogy: suppose a certain type of cloth was--for weird genetic reasons-- completely transparent to some people. Would you ever willingly wear clothes made from that cloth, knowing that you'd be effectively naked for people with that gene?
