Adam Savage of Mythbusters debuted a special costume for this year’s Comic Con. It’s a complete replica of the spacesuit worn by Sigourney Weaver in the classic movie Alien.
He spent 10 years making this costume! How extraordinary.
“When I do something like this, where the suit is supposed to be weathered and worn and torn up from years of use, putting it together is only the first part of a very difficult process. I’ve got to also get all the pieces to look like they’ve grown old together.”
Watch the video below to learn more. I love how he’s wearing an ice vest to keep himself cool as he walks the Comic Con floor. Absolutely brilliant!
