Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Bear Costume!

  • Published on Aug 3, 2016
  • We timewarp back to the week before Comic-Con for this One Day Build, in which Adam builds the head for his grizzly bear costume! 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:

    Being a furry, and being a cosplayer are two totally different vibes! Plus, furries arnt bad. They are very nice people! Take your time to hate on racists or pedophiles. 99% of the furries literally do nothing wrong 😂😂😂 heck they have more creativity then I can ever put down :/

    very impressed with the result of the eyes...they went from looking like a goofy cartoon feature to being the most realistic looking part
    I would also be interested in seeing a 2nd body made...for the same head, that is less fat and a little more realistic in proportion and see how it all looks together

    Adam you inspired me ever day since I was a kid watching the first episode of myth busters. I know this is long gone. But next time. Being from b.c. And seeing a lot of bears. Where the nose fought you. A lot of bears have cuts on their nose. Reviles the pink. And then will heal as a lighter shade of black. Hope that helps you somewhere in the future

    Looks like you bought a juvenile black bear head from a taxidermist, and have it at the scale and color of a full grown grizzly. So it looks goofy. The head is clearly way too small for its body.

  • dalton eatherly

    You also should use air brush and stain the inside if the ears and around the nose a darker shade of brown. Its wonderfull but monochrome.
