If you got your picture taken with Admiral Ackbar at the San Diego Comic Con, there’s a really good chance it was Adam Savage in disguise.

Very impressive work! Even more impressive is there are good indications that this mask was made from the original mold. How do we know that? Adam shared more information about the making of the mask, and you can see more, after the jump.

Every year at Comic-Con, Adam walks through the convention floor disguised in costume. This year, he went as a very uniquely regal version of Admiral Ackbar from Star Wars. In Adam’s Cave before SDCC, we examine the Ackbar mask before it’s completed and explain its design, creation, and conversion into a wearable piece of cosplay.
