If you attended the San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, there’s a good chance you saw a cosplayer walking around dressed as the ill-fated Kane from Alien, with a Face Hugger attached to his space helmet. It was no doubt one of the more impressive costumes at the event, and you’ll likely be surprised by who was underneath it.
As it turns out, it was Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage who donned the space suit, after spending the last ten years building an exact replica of the one seen in the film. Yes, ten years.
The Face Hugger obscuring his instantly recognizable face, Savage prowled around Comic-Con and snapped pictures with fans, nobody having any idea who was underneath the suit. The epic stunt essentially summed up the beauty of Comic-Con, where anyone can become anyone they wish to become.
Check out video footage of Savage in the incredible costume below, which is one of the greatest examples of cosplay we’ve ever seen!
