There’s plenty of impressive cosplay out there, but the reason people pay attention to former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is because he makes a fun game out of it. Every year for San Diego Comic-Con, Mr. Savage dresses up in some kind of detailed, professionally made costume and challenges fans to find him. Usually he reserves these costumes only for San Diego, the biggest convention in the country, but since he was personally invited to the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic-Con recently, he decided to have some fun.
Adam Savage dressed up as Hellboy, which was pretty cool since the first time he went incognito for Comic-Con was back in 2009, and he also dressed like Hellboy then. However, it would be cheating if he reused the same costume, so you’ll have to see how he changed things up after the jump.

Director Guillermo del Toro is a master of blending fantasy with reality. He takes the world of the supernatural and makes it feel all too genuine, sometimes forcing us to question what we call reality. But sometimes, del Toro also uses monsters and myths to show the resilience of mankind in the face of threats greater than ourselves. And in these fantastical stories, he also brings humanity, giving weight to larger than life scenarios.
The result is a relatively small but impressive filmography spanning just nine feature films, full of beautiful visuals, magnificent creatures, rich characters and a penchant for combining unreal terror with the very real threats of tumultuous sociopolitical times. And following the recently released Crimson Peak, we decided to have all of the Guillermo del Toro films ranked. Read More »
