Inside Adam Savage’s Cave: Making Patton Oswalt’s Doc Ock Costume

  1. Adam is one of those people who you love and hate at the same time.

    You love him because he’s so smart and nice and talented and hate him for the same reasons. 🙂

    Adam inspires me to make things because he makes it look so easy!

  2. Only in Adam’s workshop will you accidentally knock a facehugger down from the roof when swinging your Doctor Octopus costume around.

  3. 4 hours! Having just watched about 30 episodes of Mythbusters on Netflix over the past few days, I can believe it. I think I’ll always know him as Adam ‘am I missing…an eyebrow’ Savage from now on.

  4. Xenomorph ambush! AIEEE!

    Also, the motion blur on the arms in Patton’s photo helps it look like an action shot.
