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!

Well after 6 years I finally bit the bullet and got the bug kit from Monsterroom! Hopefully soon enough there will be a xeno roaming around the Sacramento/Bay Area conventions!

I’m so excited to finally get to working on this and if anyone has any helpful nuggets of advice please feel free to share.

Give me strength cause lord I’m gonna need it haha

I recently just got my kit too!

I think I've got an idea how I will do most things, but I am wondering if there is a good way to keep the alien head balanced and attached to my own.

Some people have used cheap bicycle safety helmets in the past and attached the latex parts to it.

Wow! I'm shocked at how little fine-detail there is on that thing. Here's a comparison with one of the original heads.

Yeah, the fine details on the smaller tubes in particular have degraded to the point they're barely visible anymore. I'm hoping to raise them a bit more with a layer of latex before painting so they'll be more noticeable.
