Adam Savage's 'Alien' Spacesuit Lets Him Go Incognito At Comic-Con

Cosplayers put a lot of time, energy and skilled effort into constructing their costumes, often spending weeks if not months putting their outfit together, building accessories and getting the overall look just right before hitting the Comic-Con floor.

However, one very famous geek named Adam Savage went above and beyond when he constructed his Alien themed spacesuit for Comic-Con, a classic costume ten years in the making.

Clearly Adam didn’t spend ten whole years making the suit, and the last decade has been a rather busy part of his life, but his incredible patience finally paid off when Mr. Savage became Adam Incognito on the Con floor:

(Video Link)

Here’s why Adam chose this particular sci-fi spacesuit as a decade long cosplay project:

  "The Alien spacesuit, which was designed by Moebius, is one of my favorite spacesuit designs ever, and I'm a spacesuit fanatic," Savage revealed. "I've got a bunch of replicas of real ones and fake ones. I've been working on this this particular suit over the last 10 years. It's the final culmination of a decade of obsession — it was worth every minute of labor put into it to see the responses from all the cosplayers out on the floor."

I must admit I had no idea that Adam Savage was in the suit when I passed him on the Con floor, and his costume was so well made and intricately detailed that it looked just as good up close as it does in photos, as you would expect from something built by that talented buster of myths.

Ninja Warrior Phenom Tackles Assassin's Creed Experience At SDCC

People were lining up under the hot California sun all weekend long just to take a crack at Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Experience obstacle course, but something tells me nobody tackled the course quite like Kacy Catanzaro.

She recently became the first woman to beat the brutal American Ninja Warrior course, so this incredible athlete couldn't help but make this fun Assassin’s Creed themed course outside San Diego Comic-Con look like a walk in the park:

If these obstacle courses are any indication Kacy is physically well prepared for the life of an assassin, and maybe she can change Ubisoft's mind about having a female assassin in the series.

Surreal Chrome Shark Gun Sculptures

People are constantly unveiling their latest crazy gun mods online, but I have yet to see a mod that involves turning guns into shiny sharks, until now...

Christopher Shulz's chrome shark gun hybrid sculptures could be a biting commentary about the ongoing gun debate, custom made weapons for a flashy warlord who really loves sharks, or simply Christopher's way of playing with form and function.

According to the artist Shark Guns are "3D metal sculptures combining sharks and guns that are meant to evoke a prescribed reaction from misinformation."

Whatever the motivation behind the creation of these shiny shark shooters one thing is certain- nothing barks and bites quite like a shark-shaped gun!

(All Images Via Zeon Santos)

DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Vice Magazine invited twenty artists to come up with their own unique version of Batman’s cape and cowl for an exhibition called Cape/Cowl/Create, promoting the upcoming video game Batman: Arkham Knight.

The artist's interpretations ranged from Dark Knight approved deadly cool to uncharacteristically bright and cheerful, with a full LEGO interpretation included to round out the collection.

Here are some of the interesting, and extremely diverse, artistic interpretations of the cape and cowl found in this exhibition, which were unveiled at the Hard Rock Hotel- San Diego during Comic-Con 2014:

Can You Spare Some Rupees For A New Shield?

Link was spotted outside San Diego Comic-Con 2014 playing some sweet melodies on his ocarina, but he wasn’t looking for a badge or a recording contract- he was trying to gather enough rupees to buy a new shield.

His playing has improved quite a bit over the years, but you'd think a hero of his caliber would have enough rupees in his coffer to afford a spare shield!

I sincerely hope he wasn't living out of that cardboard box during his visit, because there were hungry zombies lurking around downtown San Diego during Comic-Con, and Link doesn't look like he's ready for a fight...

Six-Year-Old Tries To Name Super Smash Bros. Characters, Fails Adorably

Tumblr user Lorenzo was trying to be an awesome big brother when he introduced his six-year-old little sister to the classic video game characters that star in the Super Smash Bros. video game franchise, and then he asked her if she remembered their names.

She got some of the names right, and came close with others like Pakistan (Pac-Man) and Bowler (Bowser), but the ones she tried to make up on the spot are pretty adorable.

To be fair, most of the characters in the game are from well before her time, and she probably hasn't been playing video games for long, but her imaginative new names might be just what these characters need to revitalize their image.

Beijing Based Artist Collaborates With Bees To Create His Sculptures

Bees are an intrinsic part of the natural world, and without them crops will fail, flowers won’t bloom and the human race will be in big trouble, but there’s another thing we’ll be missing out on if bees become extinct-their natural artistic gifts.

Beijing-based artist Ren Ri decided to collaborate with bee colonies to demonstrate their natural artistic gifts, a celebration to the beauty bees bring to our world.

Ren starts with a basic framework of wooden sticks mounted in a clear plastic case, then he places the queen in the middle of the structure and lets the worker bees build around her, rotating the box every seven days to help shape the hive "sculpture".

The final result is a totally organic sculpture that is more bee- than man-made, a home and handsome work of natural art in one.

Tapio Mömmö's Unique Take On Superhuman Powers

Finnish artist Tapio Mömmö has a unique vision of what it means to be superhuman, and his characters derive their utilitarian superpowers from the machines that have fused with their bodies.

Through his digital artworks the phrase keeping a cool head takes on a new meaning, and to say that a guy with a boat for a head takes to water like a duck is an understatement.

His characters are heroically tragic, world weary and dressed like average folks, but their mechanical additions make them true survivors, able to overcome whatever obstacles life throws at them.

Punisher Versus Red Hood In Super Power Beat Down

Marvel’s ultimate vigilante The Punisher and DC’s sidekick turned street crusader Red Hood have a lot in common besides their one-man war on crime- they both have a wicked sense of style, they both use guns because they don’t have superpowers, and they're the baddest anti-heroes in their respective comic book universes.

(Video Link)

MachinimaPrime and Bat in the Sun teamed up to bring the battle of the badass vigilantes to life in episode 12 of their Super Power Beat Down web series, which starts with a WonderCon poll to see who fans think will win and ends up really bleak for one of these bad boys.

Melancholic Cats Waiting For Their Humans To Come Home

(Image Via Anna Kryczkowska)

Most housecats lead pretty cushy lives, and they typically want for nothing thanks to their doting owners, but the one thing many cats can’t get enough of is companionship.

They don’t like it when their personal groomers and waitstaff have to go to their actual jobs for the day, and in these times of utter abandonment kitties can turn pretty emo.

Steel your nerves before you peruse this collection of 30 Melancholic Cats Waiting For Their Humans To Return at Bored Panda, because kitty sadness is some of the saddest sadness ever, and if you're a cat owner you might not want to leave home ever again!

Squirrel Obstacle Course Videos, Complete With British Commentary

(Video Link)

Steve Barley is a man who appreciates a good squirrel show, and he knows that we internetterly types enjoy fine squirrel footage as well, so he creates exhilarating squirrel assault course videos for the connoisseur:

(Video Link)

Steve builds the squirrel assault courses in his backyard then records footage of squirrels running through the course on video, adding the kind of real-time commentary that makes Steve Barley’s squirrel videos some of the finest the internet has to offer.

Hopefully Steve will continue to have plenty of free time on his hands in the future so he can keep building squirrel obstacle courses, and we can continue to watch him talk about squirrels on obstacle courses.

The Amazing Tree Of 40 Fruits

An old New York state orchard was about to be left for dead in 2008, an orchard that grows varieties of stone fruit over 200 years old, when artist Sam Van Aiken stepped in and took over the lease, saving many fruit varieties no longer commercially available.

Sam now grows totally magical trees that he calls the Trees of 40 Fruit, applying artistic ideas and some serious grafting skills to create a tree that "grows over forty different types of stone fruit including peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, cherries, and almonds."

His fascinating take on tree hybridization as living sculpture has produced multiple hybrid trees, and Sam even gave a TED talk about his project, so why are we seeing a photoshopped image of the Tree of 40 Fruits?

Because it could take them decades to grow to that size, so at the moment his magic trees look more like this:

Life Lessons We Can Learn From Video Games

Contrary to what those anti-gamer curmudgeons will have you believe, video games are more than just a source of mindless entertainment, or something to keep your thumbs and eyeballs busy.

Ten Overused Sci-Fi Tropes That Should Be Vaporized

Tropes like "aliens are always way smarter than we are", "humans are good guys, aliens are bad guys", and "humans only use ten percent of their brain power" come up way too often in our favorite sci-fi media, so isn’t it about time we give these tired tropes a rest?!

Gamma Squad put together a list of 10 Overused Sci-Fi Tropes That Should Be Jettisoned Into Space, in honor of the upcoming movie Lucy, which is about a girl who gets dosed with a drug that allows her use more than ten percent of her brain, aka yet another trope based sci-fi film.

Sci-fi fans are sure to find tropes they're tired of seeing worked into storylines on the list, and maybe if we all call attention to these tired tropes they'll finally be laid them to rest!

Homeless People Share Surprising Facts About Themselves

Homelessness isn't something that only happens to the mentally disabled and financially destitute, there are plenty of people from all walks of life who have found themselves homeless for any number of reasons, and you might be surprised to discover their life stories resemble your own.

(Video Link)

The Rethink Homelessness program aims to change our preconceived notions about how someone becomes homeless, and they asked several homeless people from the Orlando area to share a fact about themselves that people might find surprising for this video entitled Cardboard Stories.

You'll probably be surprised by some of the facts they have to share, and not so surprised by others, but this video will definitely make you think of homelessness in a new light.

One Simple Chart Shows 72 Uses For Common Household Products

People have been using common substances like citrus juices, oils and vinegars for cooking, as household cleaners and personal grooming products, for centuries, and many of the store bought products we buy everyday use these items as their core ingredients.

However, these store bought products also contain chemicals and toxins we’re better off leaving on the store shelves, and using core ingredients also means saving money.

This simple yet informative chart takes household products back to the old school, showing dozens of great uses for everyday products like baking soda, white vinegar and coconut oil.

The chart is missing amount recommendations for each use, but they're pretty easy to figure out with a little help from the all-knowing Google.

High Speed Photos Of People Emerging From A Waterslide

There ain’t no cure for the summertime blues quite like taking a dip in the pool, and when the doggy paddling grows tiresome folks head to a good old fashioned water park for some water based thrills and spills.

Those who brave the waterslides normally don’t care much about commemorating their experience with a photo, but maybe they would if those souvenir shots looked like the delightful pics in Krista Long's series “I Love Summer”.

Each high speed shot depicts a slider emerging from the slide in their own unique way- some shoot out like old pros, while others flail their way back into the pool, looking like they barely escaped the slide with their lives.

It’s fun in the sun for your eyeballs!

The Birth Of The Alphabet

Before there is a font there are letters and an alphabet, but where do letters come from? According to artist Andreas Scheiger they go through an embryonic stage before they become part of the written word.

You may remember Andreas as the guy who created a gruesome series of typographic surgery sculptures, but this time his series "Evolution of Type" reveals how letters are created, instead of how they meet their end.

Andreas sculpts the letters out of polymer clay, colors and coats them with resin, then suspends each baby letter in a glass bowl filled with gel wax, to complete their signature fetal look.
