Maker extraordinaire Adam Savage and comedian John Hodgman have been buddies for some time now, so during this most recent Comic-Con, Savage decided to fold his friend into his tradition of walking around the SDCC floor in an identity-concealing costume, typically one that he made himself. Hodgman said that was his first time cosplaying, so to make it special, Savage had the pair go as a classic character: Chewbacca, the beloved Star Wars wookie.
Even in elaborate costume, though, Savage always seems to get recognized by at least a couple fans on the Comic-Con floor, and this time was no exception, thanks to a few eagle-eyed enthusiasts who follow him on Twitter. Perhaps they’re also fervent Tested.com fans and remember the video from a few months ago in which Savage created the bandolier he wore:
Check out the video above, which also includes a look at the making of the Chewbacca costume, which was based on Lucasfilm archives, so it’s pretty darn accurate. This is just the latest of Savage’s many Comic-Con floor costumes, so let us know in the comments below which one is your favorite!
