Neil Gaiman Dresses Up as Badger

Nope, that's about the jist of this story.

This is a picture of Neil Gaiman dressed up as a badger.

Neil Gaiman as Badger

The background to this picture is that British photographer Cambridge Jones was photographing authors as their favorite literary characters.  Gaiman chose to dress up as Badger from Wind in the Willows.  Here's Jones about the shoot:

It never struck me as one of the best ideas - Neil Gaiman as Badger. A medieval swashbuckling hero maybe, or as a dark overlord from another time zone, perhaps. Or even the lead singer in a very cool band....but Badger from Wind In The Willows?!

And then an odd thing happened: he just started to become Badger - literally in front of my eyes. With wonderfully simple make-up and exquisite robes, he started to move like Badger, he started to smile like Badger, he even started to talk as I imagine Badger talks. When we finally went on set and gave him his chair and book, he just WAS Badger.

Well that's nice.  

More importantly, this will be the banner picture for any Neil Gaiman story that appears on our site until we go out of business.  Thank you, humor gods.
