Description
My love for Another World runs deep and true, it's a gaming landmark and in its time blew away the minds of gamers worldwide, French in origin but the fact that the game included no dialogue or text aside from the opening title meant it could be played by anyone of any nationality, and yet it had a gripping story of survival in a foreign, and hostile, world.

This was the brainwave that hit me about three weeks ago, essentially the guy wears a black tshirt, grey trousers and white shoes, big whoop. However, factor in the bright orange hair, polygonal face, and iconic gun, and throw in the alien companion you gain by the second level, and someone might recognise it ;)

So yeah, this was me, a lot of plasticine, a sharp palette knife and latex trying to make two polygonal head masks, it's harder than it looks.

Doing this costume required me to force a friend to talcum his skin paler, and wear clothes that - without the mask - make him look like a cross between Patrick Swayze and Hard Gay. I will be forever apologizing.

Not many recognized it so we generally got avoided like freaks, but some did and that's all that matters. Yay!
