The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

So, I did a panel at Comicpalooza at Houston this past weekend: Aliens Cosplay 101.

On the run up, me and Bigbisont worked on a resource pack for the panel. Lists the various costumes, props, what they were made from, where you can buy them etc etc. For a 3-4 week job, we had to rush it.

Folks at the show loved it, said it was extremely helpful, so throwing it up on here.

It's a work in progress. Now that the initial rush is done, me and Bigbisont will be working on another draft, hopefully more in depth.

Here it is in PDF format, about 84 pages long.

Big thanks to Bigbisont, he has been a machine working on this.

Can this PDF be shared on social media (with a link back here) or is it just for these forums?

Great compilation! But was it a deliberate decision to not reference SD-studios as a source for metal parts like grenades?

Go nuts. Just be sure to make a note that it is a work in progress and subject to change.

Well, we are still compiling.

With vendors referenced in there, I am opting for being careful. Yes, we could just slap CAVEAT EMPTOR on it and tell people they are taking their own chances, but I think a bit of light screening on our part. After all, I wouldn't send someone to a source I know has issues. For example, there is a source for Ripley Grenade Harnesses, however the seller is banned from the Aliens Legacy for the very reason that they are a bad seller, so I would not send any business their way.

Wow! A lot of time and energy was clearly been spent here but great work and well worth it.

Speaking as someone who is still finding their feet with their kit and costume, this guide is fantastic. Thanks

Glad everyone is liking it and it was (and is) a fun project. If people think of other things that are missing or could make it better, please do chime in. This is just the first draft and as Mantroon said it was done fairly quickly so I'm sure there are things we either missed or could give more attention to.

Getting some feedback on facebook and a few people willing to contribute to version 2
