  1. Be honest. You were smiling for every one of those pictures behind that mask.

    (Screen used props. We are so jealous.)

  2. Awesome costume, it’s crazy how quick you get discovered though – it would be interesting to see how quickly you get discovered if you wore an Adam Savage mask! 😛

  3. I was wondering Adam ( ) Where did you get your contacts for Hellboy and when you were putting your makeup on your left hand you sprayed it with something…What was it? Why I ask is my wife’s first cosplay costume last year was Hellgirl and we are always looking for ways to improve upon it for this year’s cons…As always a great video..keep it coming.

  6. It was a really cool costume. One of the best comic versions of a costume Ive seen Too bad the one day ruined it. But I expected it would

  7. Hey Adam, great work on Hellboy. Is there any chance to see how you made the mask and chest plate?
