I like it. Did you consider looking directly at the camera for a stronger presence?

The shot looks good until you see the area on the outside of your arms and shoulders. It looks like you added the white to the shot and it really makes it stand out. Other than that I think this would have been a really awesome picture.

It has potential to be Donnie Darko-ish, but something is missing, and I don't know what... maybe the FBI and the Santa thing is too much?

Wow this is awesome. Very professional, I could see this as some sort of ad campaign. Nice use of lighting to keep the shot clean.
