I just saw an advertisement in this forum showing a statue of the Alien Xenomorph and thought I might as well share my costume idea now.
I've already decided to get a costume of the Giger alien or something inspired by that one, but didn't know when the time for that would be since I was going to buy a somewhat expensive latex kit that needs to be glued to a bodysuit and painted and all that, then I read that such a latex costume would rot away after some time, which is pretty bad!
Thinking of other ways to make one, I got the idea that maybe it would be possible to actually sew the whole damn thing out of vinyl or leather since the whole thing is just a bunch of ribbed and shiny stuff anyway.
It would be a very complex job, but it would be my very own scratch built, or sewn if you will, costume, made a way I think no one has ever done before, and it would probably last a very long time indeed.
So what you all think of this idea? Something that could work? To me it seems possible after a whole lot of sewing and swearing.
