This homemade costume for adults entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Peter, the 'Alien' costume creator:

I'm wearing this costume at a comicon from the movie "Alien" or "Aliens". All made from scratch starting with a black body suit, vinyl tubing for chest detail, pool tubing for back and tail detals. Some hemispherial 3/4 plastic domes glued inside suit for additional detail. Sixth finger armature inside glove with glue on nails for hands & feet. Footwear, internal "wedge" type shoe (inserted into body suit). Head with plastic dome mounted over human skull model kit. Cake pan backpiece to mount tubes w/ foam and wire hangers to shape.

WOW. Fantastic DIY costume! Alien is my fav alien so I have seen the movies and researched H.R. Giger's art. Really, Great Job!

Thanks, I fabricated that just after the movie came out...I was working for Starlog Magazine at the time and had seen a screening before the release.

Denise, Thanks! I was very much into costuming in the '70's & '80's. Got hooked up doing some movie release promo with Universal and my 10 year involvement with Ghostbusters for Columbia Pictures.
