Macro to set race/gender in Dressing Room?

Hi all --

I'm a big fan of the new toy Atomic Recalibrator, which randomizes your race/gender but seems to choose a deterministic appearance for that race/gender based on your real appearance. However, you're not allowed to use the barbershop while you have the recalibrator buff on (you are "shapeshifted"), so if I want to dial in a specific look for a given race/gender based on my look, the iteration time is insane.

I was hoping I could come up with a clever macro that'd poke DressUpFrame in the same way that this toy pokes our model, so I could quickly see how my barber shop changes will impact how I'll look if I'm recalibrated to Undead, or Draenei, etc. I've tried playing with it like this:

/script DressUpFrame.ModelScene:GetPlayerActor():SetModelByFileID(1011653)

But this is nonsense and ends up just drawing an all-white white model in the appropriate shape.

Does anyone know how to convince DressUpFrame to show a different race/gender in the viewer, but with proper textures? Again, the goal is to see my Atomically Recalibrated self. Thanks in advance.

The old DressUpModel object used to be able to do this by calling PlayerModel:SetCustomRace(). but it's no longer in use by the current client in favor of using ModelScene/ModelSceneActor.
