Adam Savage Incognito at Comic-Con 2016 (The Revenant Bear!)

Watch Adam build this bear costume here:

It's time for Adam's Incognito walk through San Diego Comic-Con! This year, Adam's costume is a creature of his own creation--a bear suit that's more realistic than cartoonish. But he also couldn't help making it pop-culture related, so he made it inspired by the Leonardo DiCaprio film, The Revenant, complete with a Leo prop!

It's no secret that Adam's a big fan of Chewbacca. So for his newest cosplay build, Adam revamps his Chewie costume to carry an animatronic threepio, as depicted in The Empire Strikes Back.

Adam Savage's One Day Builds: Wookiee Feet!

Chewbacca isn't just Adam's favorite Star Wars alien, but it's also one of his favorite costumes to wear at conventions and for Halloween. After over 10 years of wearing this Chewbacca costume, Adam begins the process of updating and rebuilding its parts, starting with Chewie's feet. It's a process to foam sculpting that brings out Adam's hot wire cutter, his favorite high-strength tape, and a lot of hot glue. And after the feet are fabricated, it's time to give Chewie a weathering pedicure!
