“Space Oddity”-Singing Astronaut Chris Hadfield Slowly Turning Into David Bowie

Remember that awesome video of Chris Hadfield singing David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” aboard the International Space Station? You should. It was kind of the best thing ever.

But photographer Christopher Wahl didn’t think his transformation went far enough. When he was asked to do a photoshoot with the returned astronaut, he decided it was time to blend Bowie and Hadfield into one. Check out the transformation in the video below!

Wahl took time to make up Hadfield as David Bowie’s iconic Aladdin Sane, getting a cover shot for Maclean’s that is a dead ringer for the album cover it mimics. Look at that flawless makeup job!
