Awesome work! I thought that was a kit build at first. You have done a fantastic job on this. Welcome to the RPF.


I'm always excited to meet another Alien fan. Nice build lilsparrow, may I ask what is p.u. hard foam? Are you referring to latex?

@ Simul8r : "P.U. Hard foam" refers to Polyurethane resin foam, so it's not foam latex, it's a two-compound foam that is created with a chemical reaction during the mixing, and without heat or curing. It can be hard, or soft, and it's cheaper than foam latex.

Let's say, when you do not have a big oven, it's a convenient way to have foam elements, close to foam latex, but not as stretchy. Some type of this foaming resin can even create a " skin " surrounding the foam core, getting more details from the mold.

@ littlesparrow : Y'a pas d'autres moyens que le système D, de toute façon, même chez les pros. Jolie build, le résultat est là. :)

head is from a silicone mold,i made 4 others but mold is not made with high quality silicone so it s very fragile

maybe i can do one other head or a torso...but i have other projects and i don t have too much time

you can t find a warrior head in usa?
in france it s really hard to find an alien suit or head,that s why i do my own costume

That would scare my to death if it came after me in a dark alley. Absolutely beautiful work, and only starting to do this stuff in 2 short years is fantastic!!
