Hey fellas

As promised here are the photos of my completed Alien suit, my first in a hopefully long line of completed high end costumes.

These photos are taken at the Australian Gencon 2009 held in beautiful sunny Brisbane. This is where i first wore my completed alien suit last week to show off to the general public, and the response was beyond amazing!

Have you ever seen those movie scenes where someone walks into a bar and everyone just stops and looks at that person? I finally found out what that was like. I encourage anyone who views this thread to please leave any comments or suggestions on to how i could improve in some areas, whether it be painting / assembly / stance for photos / additional characters to pose with.

Just wanted to thank everyone who helped in the creation of this suit, especially "monsterroom" who provided me with the mouldings. And to all of you other Australian based predators and xenomorph's out there, Brisbane is soaking in anticipation for Supanova 2010 in Brisbane, as they are now aware that the hunter's, and even more aliens will be attending.

cheers fellas

I found out on the first day that my belt was slipping a little at first so i had to readjust it, unfortunately later on i found out that it had left a 20 cm wide bruise across my back (whoops). But i got the belt under control now so now more belty stuff-ups.

Hey guys

Thought i'd throw up (not literally) a few more photos from my last con, these were taken by my sister with her really expensive camera and they turned out great. Im installing speakers into my shoulders this week with looping mp3's playing from a 2gb mp3 player attached to my belt. Also im in the process of getting a "drool" system which will use 'mcdonalds milkshake thickener' to give an even slimier look to the mouth.
