Awesome “Big Head” Gaming Mode Self Portrait

This Papercraft Self Portrait was made by Eric Testroete as his Halloween costume last weekend.

Eric is a 3D artist in the Vancouver game industry and he was inspired by the big-head mode seen in videogames. You can find more photos in this Flickr set.

Have a look at the whole project here.

UPDATE:

This thing has lit Twitter up today. People love it.

Fellow gluer Dom blogged about it too but found this cool ‘low res’ halloween costume. Extra points.

Fifty People, One Question

I’ve was watching a few short films last night, but these from Crush + Lovely really grabbed my attention.

The idea is simple.

Go to a place. Ask fifty people the same question. Film their responses.

I could get all deep about how different we all are, what it says about aspirations, cultural differences, and all that gubbins but you’ll know all that if you’ve watched them.
