I'm not so active on the forum, but I want to share the experiences from my build in whatever help it can be to fellow builders. My downloadable file is continuously updated for every major modification I make. Read and watch EVERYTHING in it thoroughly before asking questions, please. And remember, I am no expert and can't answer everything, but I try my best to help out. With that said, I wish everyone the best of luck, and hope this helps and inspires to make more xenomorphs around the world!

I scratchbuilt this alien xenomorph costume as a fan. Based on the appearance in the first Alien film from 1979.
It was first used at The Scandinavian Sci-fi, Game & Film Convention 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden. (It has since then been improved.)

Videos:
Playlist with videos of the costume in action

Suggestions and templates/blueprints:
Download hundreds of pictures from the build. And some of my own blueprints made for specific details. Not a complete tutorial, but alot of help in construction. All the things I figured out for myself, I give to the public to use. I update this file from time to time, so downloading it again at a later time gives you more pictures, information, and so on.

Download pictures and building suggestions from my build here
(Updated 2017-03-18. About 2 GB, so be patient if download takes a while. And if it fails, just try again.)

Info:
About 320 hours in the making.

Height in costume: About 192 cm.

Method: Mainly foam, styrofoam and found items. The base for the body is a morph suit.

Cost of materials: At the present about 1500€.

Getting dressed takes about 10-15 minutes.

I don't do commissions on this costume.

Thanks! Yes, that is the part I am most proud of. It took some work, as you can see in the download. :)

Thank you so much for the inspiration and letting me use some of your ideas and work to create my own Alien!

Here is a quick 30 second video of my almost finished Alien Xenomorph.

The download was probably not complete. The file is 2.06 GB. Check the size of your downloaded file. I downloaded it myself just now to try, without any problems. Please try again.
