A‑Level Student Picks Up Results Dressed As GWAR’s Oderus Urungus
This exam results season will not be remembered fondly by those students collecting their results to find that algorithm fuckery has swiped their grades. But for London-based design student Lani Hernandez-David, last Thursday was still the perfect opportunity to strut their hard work. To wit: results were picked up while dressed as late GWAR frontmonster Oderus Urungus, a home-made getup the mask designer had put together themselves. It’s wicked…

So today I dressed in my home made Oderus Urungus to pick up my A-level school results. I got a B in design technology and a D in art... oh well. All I’d like to say is that you don’t need the highest grades and you don’t need to go to Hollywood to be able to create cool shit. Anyways, this has been a fun project. Let’s try see if we can get an article made about this! Thanks for all the lovely support. Not for sale, will not make any for sale. If you want to buy an Official Oderus piece (or other GWAR pieces for that matter) message @maggotgrace or @sawborg_destructo . @gwar #oderus #sawborgdestructo #oderusurungus #balsac #flattusmaximus #pustulusmaximus #jizmakdagusha #beefcakethemighty #gwarmedallion #scumdogs #scumdogia #sickofyou #antartica #costume #mask #skull #bobgorman #sexecutioner #slymenstrahymen #bohabforlife #loudwire
Quite how this excellence didn’t warrant inventing a mark higher than A* we’ll never understand. The real Oderus would have gone out after and punched a senior government figure in the nuts, then laughed about it really loudly, but all the same, Lani’s masks are amazing. Sadly, the Slipknot masks you can see on Instagram are no longer up for grabs, but just look at them and get jealous of those who managed to grab one.
Rick Astley channels his inner Mick Thomson and rocks out to Slipknot’s Duality… and it’s absolutely perfect.
