    It's going well. Is it possible to see in more detail your arms and legs (the black bits)? If I remember from seeing this on other forums, you are doing something different to the usual latex panels.

    Very nice. i would suggest adding lifts to the feet. The overall proportion of the suit is making the legs look a bit short.

    thank you very much for all...
    so, yes i'm not making the usual alien suit, with latex parts on a spandex bodysuit that you can see...
    i want an entire suit, and don't want to see any part of the spandex suit...so all will be cover ,full arms, full legs,full back...
    i thought about the lift to the feet, but want to make the alien entire suit before, to see how it weight,and to think more about how making them...that's why latex feet are not glued on the shoes yet... but thank you very much for the idea...

    its looking great so far.
    You can push the details in the latex back out by pushing in cotton through the top or bottom edges.This way they don't collapse when moving around.Can't wait to see more.

    That is AWESOME. Did you sculpt all the additional latex pieces to make the suit complete?

    Nice. Needs some color variation, though. It all seems kind of flat and the teeth especially need to stand out more.

    Agreed, on mine I used a number of different grey shades and then worked them in on highlighted areas (ribs etc.). Originally for Aliens they used browns but I always preferred the grey look of the original (even thought its probably not quite so screen accurate being the aliens design and alien colour scheme).

    Here's some pics of mine, most taken for the publicitity for the NSC Space Centre event in June....

    I really like what Batnemo has done with the "extra" pieces he's made himself. On mine I painted the bodysuit with liquid latex so at least the suit would look like a complete entity rather than the "latex applications on cotton suit" the Aliens movie suits. However there are a couple of places on mine where somethings missing (like where the tail meets the back) so I'd be interested in seeing what you've done. The fact that your jaw has a "bottom" to it is great too.

    Nice job

    Cheers

    Jez

    :eek

    Both of you....incredible job....man I love that suit....I can't get over how good it looks....do you have to be a certain height/build for it? How much is one? Is there a Queen version LOL....not sure I would play a Queen :$ ....but with those special articulated stilts and arm extensions, a Queen is not outside of the realm of possibility...the reason I say so is that a Queen would be better suited to a big guy...

    A Queen would be awesome but imo way too heavy for a single person. For the movie IIRC they used a crane for the body/head and then 4 guys for the arms (I remember the test footage on the original Aliens legacy - not sure if its on the quadrilogy).

    I got mine at the end of last year and as a raw latex kit it was a lot of fun putting together and painting. pm me for info

    Cheers

    thanks really much, all...
    yes i have a lot to do, my project is same as Jez, for highlighting all, withgrey, blue and silver...
    the teeth need too...
    i want to add tender for the jaws... and some fixation for a fishing wire for supporting the tail when i need but before that i need to sand some area and put more layers of black latex...

    so here are some pics of it, i took last night...

    Very cool pics Batnemo - Aliens are extra scary at night.

    Troopermaster - the kits go for about $1000 IIRC

    I wasn't too sure when I saw the first of the night pictures, when it's catching the full glare of the flash, but the rest of the photos show this suit is looking fantastic. Great form.
