Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

Really great to see someone take on Moebius' suits!
Nice work so far.

Have you purchased your Cricket pads yet?

Interested in helmet, as I doubt I have the $$$$ for the full suit, let alone a place to display a whole suite.

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

We havent found any evidence that they actually were cricket pads used for the legs. No evidence that the undersuits werent scrtach built. Not saying those items werent used but we cant find a match anywhere...yet.

I'd be willing to bet you've already seen this pic but just in case you haven't I'll post it up for you.
Can't wait to see this one done. Always liked these suits.

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

what model hockey gloves are those used for the suit?

I'm up here in Canada and if you need and help locating more let me know as well as any other hockey gear that may have been used.... i think i see white shoulder pad parts(the laced up thing on the chest)

a lot of used equipment and thrift stores!:thumbsup

If you would like to PM me, I can give you the details of a guy you might like to chat too.
I did a modelmaking course in the UK and my tutor was the modelmaker who worked on the original helmets. (he said).

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

The hockey gloves are Coopers. There are at least 2 versions in the film not including the kids. Dallas's have 2 seams running from fingers to wrist that are absent on Kanes..not sure about Lamberts.

The kids sized are different but I havent studied them quite yet.

The shoudler pads are Vintage coopers as well. I need about 10 sets of adult L or XL if you can come across these.

Thanks for the pic. Thats the initial costume that were using for refence material. Ea. suit has a few indiosyncracies so we may or may not copy ea. suit but may make a general costume based on our best reference material.

Thanks

Just so you know (in case you didn't) the wrist comms on that Hurt suit are repros.

You should probably look at actual movie stills for boot reference as well.

Re: Aliens Enviromental Suit Progress pics.

Thats interesting because we there seems to be many differences in the boot pics.

Im using screen pics on the compads.

Thanks

Man, what an awesome project!! The progress is looking amazing so far.
Are you planning to offer an entire suit? The soft parts as well as the armored areas and helmet?
I love the patina finish as well. Looks great!
