As most of you know, Sir Ridley Scott's newest Alien installment (Well, prequel) is coming out in a few months. I've been inspired to create my own sort of costume from the trailer we've seen. Obviously, it won't be too screen accurate. I just want to create something to wear to the midnight launch.
First things first, I'll be creating all armor pieces as 3D pepakura files and doing them that way. Can't spend toooo much money on this and don't really have much knowledge of modeling other than on a computer.
I have some questions for the RPF, though. Do any of you recommend where I could get a full plastic (maybe glass, but thats hard to work with) "Bowl" sort of helmet? I'd most likely be cutting it in half and then putting it back together with a control panel type mechanism in it. Like in this picture:
Also, where could a fella go about getting that type skin tight leather/spandex/anything bodysuit? I'd need one to match the kind of material used in the movie but I don't even know where to start when it comes to looking for one of those.
Any help would be widely appreciated. I know this is a crazy idea to make a costume for a movie that hasn't even come out but I'm challenging myself with it.
