Adam Savage

Formerly of Mythbusters, Adam Savage gives a TED talks on his life and how cosplay played a huge part in it.

From an early age he created masks and settings using his imagination. He then goes on to talk about his time on Mythbusters and how he would use cosplay throughout the episodes. Additionally, he talks about how great the people who cosplay are.

You can watch his very emotional and personal talk below:

  • Never got into Mythbusters, would you still say it’s worth watching even if your not a fan?

    • azariosays

      i would say check out the episodes and watch the ones that interest you 🙂 that’s what i usually did lol

    • Thanks!

    • Infophile

      I second Azario: It varies a lot based on the episode. Look for ones with interesting subject matter (a lot of the episodes have themes, but even for those that don’t, there are lists of what myths are tested in each episode), and give those a try.

      A lot of the enjoyment from the show does come from the hosts, so if you don’t care for their personalities, the show probably won’t be for you.

    • Makes senses!

  • Mr0303

    That was an amazing presentation. I myself don’t have the time or resources to cosplay, but I greatly value the passion of people who do.

    Savage’s closing No-Face story was beautiful. I think this is the moment that he realised that there is a community of people just as passionate as he is and he is no longer that lonely weird boy who liked building costumes.
