Adam Savage's Admiral Ackbar Costume Is Epic

Mythbusters' Adam Savage is one of the crown princes of geekdom, so it's hard for him to go to a big event like the San Diego Comic-Con without getting mobbed. His solution, like Rosario Dawson, is to wear a costume that hides his face. However, Savage never does anything small. This year, he showed up in an epic replica of Admiral Ackbar from Return of the Jedi. And yes, this time, it was a trap.

Adam put out a lengthy article about how he and his friends put together the costume. He purchased a casting of the original mask, and his buddy Frank Ippolito created a detailed copy. It's really interesting to see the amount of effort and detail that went into it, so you can go to tested.com..

  1. That is a sweet costume! It is much better than Matt Smith wearing a Bart Simpson rubber mask.

  2. But it's so good, I'm sure he still had people following him.

  3. Wow I wish I had the money to waste on stuff like that
