Adam Savage Incognito as Jack Sparrow at Dragon*Con 2013

Dragon*Con is known for its cosplay, so Adam took the opportunity to blend in by putting on a meticulously assembled Jack Sparrow costume and, in an Incognito first, didn’t hide his face. Face Off’s Frank Ippolito once again comes to assist with transforming Adam into character, and it turns out that this is a makeup job that Frank has a history with! See step-by-step photos of the makeup process, with Frank’s commentary, here!

  1. I *thought* that was Face Off Eddie in the bg there… 🙂

    Adam, nice Tim Minchin cosplay around 4:00 :p

    I’ve got to say, Adam might have the “perfect” costume, but that middle Jack had the mannerisms down.

  2. Not only did the middle Jack have the mannerisms down, he even sounded like him for that one line.. lol

    .

    Great job on the costume, Adam! 🙂

  3. Jack Sparrow costume seems a great way to be drunk to act drunk during the daytime, hmmmm….

    QFT. Need to keep this in mind if I ever get into cosplaying 😛

  4. i don’t have a beards but i do have a stash can i still pull a Jack Sparrow off ? my excuse to get drunk 😛

    by the way ow long was Adam walking on the floor till some one recognize him ?

  5. Great costume, now I am seriously bummed we got stuck at Pepboys instead of being at the Hotel 🙁

    Thanks for the video guys!

  6. I was gonna say he looked a little Minchin or maybe even a little Izzard somewhere between full make-up and not having the wig on yet, lol

  7. I have to preface this comment with the following:

    I really like everyone on Tested and have watched 12 hours worth in the last 18hours.

    I noticed that Norm seems to act completely different when he’s on camera with Adam than when he’s not around Adam. When I was watching the regular show without Adam, he seemed cranky, sometimes uninterested and went out of his way to contradict Will. I’m not sure what causes the dynamic to change but I prefer his performance when he is with Adam. I really do like all of the shows but is there a reason why its like that?
