    For this One Day Build, Adam Savage builds the head for his grizzly bear costume from Comic-Con 2016! Adam explains how he sketched out the design for the character, how he experimented with its forms, and how the suit comes together. But the head is the most important part!
    Adam also made a poster based on his sketches and notes for this costume design:

    I can’t wait for the Pedobear Version he’s got in the works is done. Should be really wonderful. He’s modeling it to be completely like the actual Pedobear. Should be a big hit at the Blackhat-con hackvest thing he’s doing it for. Can’t recall the name of the event. Hit me up and I’ll be able to tell ya. •••2019 The Bear’s making a comeback..•••

    I hope you addresses the back shape as it had some valleys (maybe it’s the Grinch from grizzly man and it’s just hungry?). Also the neck Line need to be secured. I know you’re a detail master so I’m sure the final was all buttoned up and proper. Oh cool i should have checked out the comicon vid before writing this probably. Let’s check it out now and see what ya did.
    I love it. Would be so fun to wear around. The girdle structure is so cool with its lightweight flexuality.

    I love watching Adam create, but someone please get this poor man some dotting tools for molding that plastic for the nose. I feel bad that he struggled so much with that part;
    Nevertheless, I'm always impressed with his work. I think he was always my favorite on MythBusters, being fun and imaginative and having so many ideas. I'm very into cosplay, so often I'll watch your building videos and costuming videos for inspiration, along with some other smaller videos on how to use polymer clay, thermoplastic beads and "wire," etc.
    (P.S. Yes I know I'm late, but I've watched this video once before)

    I see alot of errors with this realistic costume. It has to do with the sizing, body shape, floor on cheeks need to be increased into strait out and droop down like a real bear.

    I would’ve taken some hair gel and watered it down
    Put it in ur hands and just clumped up some of the fur
    Painted the inside of the ears to get darker so they look like real ears
    And used darker fur
    Edit: and made the leather on the mouth droopy and worn
    Just to really make it like a real bear
