Xenomorph Made From Everyday Household Objects

Though it’s great to be able to work with materials such as Worbla and metal, you can use everyday items to build incredible costumes. This xenomorph from Alien, for example, was built fom a variety of objects Peter Kokis tracked down here and there. He spent 450 hours cobbling bits and pieces together into this super impressive alien. What did he use? Here are some of the Xenomorph’s parts:

12 plungers, 10 knife sharpeners, silicone wine glass drain mats(?), lots of coat hooks, 12 pull handles, 2 Halloween decorations, Army boots, toy sword, knee guards, 10 costume ball masks (for their elongated noses), 2 pr. hockey leg guards, hockey helmet, ski goggle lense, football shoulder pads, baseball pants, 45 velcro straps, shinguards, headband, 48 coiled sneaker laces, athletic cup, teeth from a werewolf mask, bottlecap opener, 2 exercise weights, work gloves, lots of ribbed plastic tubing in various diameters, lots of vitamin bottlecaps, and lots and lots of plastic from trashcan bodies & lids…recurring shapes used throughout his body for a consistent effect.
