A Pint-Sized Xenomorph Costume

Alien Day was yesterday, April 26 — it’s a reference to the moon in Aliens, designated LV-426. It’s never too late to celebrate a Xenomorph though, so we’re admiring a pint-sized Alien costume Replica Prop Forum (RPF) user Red2 made for his six-year-old son for Halloween 2017. Red2 built the creature from a base of insulation foam, hoses, and more. He explains his plans:

“So plan is to make the head from insulation foam with tube details from various hoses, and plastic wire sheathing. The jaw will be cut and molded out of EVA, and I think the teeth also. Hoping to get the jaw to work. Still figuring that out.
The body will be similar details, plus soft foam, EVA foam, and whatever works. I’m trying to find a used kids wet suit to chop up and layer upon. We’ll see if that ever surfaces.”

You can see the general shape coming together in the below picture.
