Eric Testroete and his Giant Head
A good Halloween costume should be many things: Unique, creative, personal and, what the hell, we’ll give extra points for scary. Canadian 3d artist Eric Testroete hit every criteria when he decided he’d go out as a big-headed version of himself. Anyone who played Nintendo 64 can tell Testorete was inspired by “big head mode” (which, without fail, makes me want to play Goldeneye), but the day I get passed on the street by some dead-eyed pixelated cranial monstrosity? Those, my friends, are the End Times.
You’ve got to give the guy an A for effort; his costume is as cool as it is unsettling. My biggest question, though, is how he can see out of that thing. Maybe he can’t? If so, there’s certainly something to be said for commitment. This might be revealing more about myself than I’d like, but what’s the point of wearing this to a party if you can’t see the horrified looks on your friends’ faces?
