    hi everybody!
    i m from france,i m 30 years old
    i m a sf movie fan and i ve seen very nice things on this forum:eek
    i m a beginner ,i started to sculpt and mold 2 years ago and
    i wanted to show you my alien warrior costume
    it s an entire scratch build,it took me approximatively 2 years,
    the head is p.u. hard foam with silicone mold
    all the patches are latex with plaster mold
    the head and tail were really big work...

    excuse for my bad english...

    i hope you enjoy

    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. :)

    Really nice scratch build! Captures the spirit of the creature, especially in the curved lines around the mouth, scary!

    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!!
