This is Desaturated Santa (aka Brody Qat) at the 2010 San Francisco’s annual SantaCon gathering. This was all over the intertubes a while ago, but I missed it at the time. Anyway, the image below is not photo-manipulated – this is pure art-concept theatrical costuming executed with meticulous attention to detail (click through for larger pic).
Qat has written on her blog about cavorting in grey-scale for the 2009 and 2010 SantaCons, and has just published some advice for others about creating their own desaturated character-other-than-Santa costumes.
This truly is a work of art. I love how it plays with people’s perceptions and twists their expectations – absolutely first class.
