I came up with the idea to shoot up like a Space Pirate was coming out of a gap in the wall, and Vince worked his composition and lighting magic and turned it into an awesome photo. If I had the skills, I would photoshop some vague shape in the darkness, but if I tried it would probably come out looking comically awful.
Costume made and worn by me, Paralyzer by my friend Derek.
