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 ? Size does not matter.

After all, obviously the GERCM are the best of the best, the tip of the spear, the ultimate ultimate badasses out there !

Good morning fellow marines,

My name is Mike, I live on the Yorkshire Coast. I am hoping to form a local squad - 7th Regt. 1st Batt, (Expiditionary Force) USS Scarboria.

I am a newby to the costuming scene and I am currently uniformed in British MTP gear, awaiting delivery of my armour and CM helmet although I currently have a standard one.

There is a local Con at Scarborough (now in its 5th year) which has a couple of resident Xenomorphs an predator, and is home of the North Yorkshire Prop Department but as far as I am aware
does not have a Colonial Marine presence (as yet).

So if there are any fellow Marines living in North Yorkshire and would like to meet up, please get in touch.

I would like to say congratulations to all member for the wealth of information this forum has, I just may join the ready line for life (even the Missus is interested).


Many thanks,

'Machine' (Awaiting service number)

Hi there. I'm somewhat new to the site. I say somewhat because I had an old account, but couldn't remember the email used or the password or screen name, so I whipped up this new account. I currently have a squad of 6 (including myself) marines. We've secured our armor (still trimming and putting it all together), pulse rifles and smartguns (2 smartgunners are putting their smartguns together). We have a killer awesome tech guru who's looking to be our Wey Yu rep and a lot of enthusiasm. Just wanted to say hello and say that we are wondering if it's possible to put together an official squad of sorts or if we're not quite there yet, how would we get there?

Welcome to the crew. And you do not have to wait for your pulse rifle you can build it or print it. If you can make it to Germany or the UK we have gatherings and conventions in that arena from time to time.


Actually, if you have a color printer:
http://aliens.humlak.cz
or a 3-d printer:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17274

If you have access to wood working equipment and a local hardware supply store you can literally build faux weaponry and costumes.

Hey everyone my name is Yavuz and I’m super new here. I’m from Germany. I’m a garage kit artist I do sculpting painting and customizing movie related stuff like busts statues and building up prop replicas! I’m posting my stuff mainly on Facebook on my personal page my artist nickname is Bucephallos. I love Alien and Aliens since I was a little bag of trouble the fascination to be somewhere in space with a crew working for a company the fact of the unknown cuffed me up till today! I’m a huge fan of H.R Giger and Dave O’bannon i always loved the design of the species! I had the honor to meet H.R. Giger 2 times in my life and had a long conversations with him! I really feel blessed that i’ve had the chance and the honor to met him in person which influenced my actual work more! R.I.P
...the dirty space the designe of the creatures the work of the creative team back then is what i Love and what the most of us are carrying on.

Hi I'm Stephen and I'm an electronic design engineer who apparently can't find his way around a forum, resulting in my putting an introduction in the off topic sub forum before finding this thread. :roll:
I'm a big sci fi fan and after writing a piece of Aliens fan fiction (I write a lot in my spare time) last year got the urge to buy some colonial marine armour. I was referred to this forum at MCM Birmingham in March by another member and I'm looking to sign up with the UKCM. Right now I have a set of armour (bought as kit) and helmet (scratchbuilt) that I'm in the process of upgrading and a couple of pulse rifles (1 resin kit and 1 scratchbuilt). Pictures from before the upgrade started attached.

Hello, All!

I'm JJ from Orlando, Florida. I've loved Aliens since I saw it on broadcast TV as a kid (and boy was I shocked at how violent it was when I finally saw the theatrical release.)

I've been interested in cosplay and prop building for about five years now. I scratch-built a Proton Pack (that I'm currently improving and restoring) and recently did a Pulse Rifle conversion on one of my son's Nerf guns.

My kids and I are planning on doing an Aliens group cosplay for the upcoming Con season here in Florida, so soon I'll be making armour for my son and I (and a flamethrower gaff taped to a pulse rife for my daughter :) ).

Wow. Long time reader of this forum. I'd joined in 2013 but never really posted anything. I'm in awe of the amount of information about the Aliens universe that this community has amassed. The amount of cooperation between contributors is amazing.

I've put together some props before, but it was a post on a replica forum from a user Quest that got me into the Aliens sub-genre. His instructions illustrated how to put a Styrene shroud onto a modified Nerf Gun to get a sorta M41 pulse rifle - if you squint and don't look real hard. That did it !! The Aliens bug bit and I wanted more.

I then stumbled onto this forum from posts of users of both forums. and found all the resources for the correct look and feel for this universe. I then got some USCM patches and then put together a Motion Tracker with the correct parts - again thanks to all the contributors to this site. Right now its my favorite prop. Its not 100% but close.

Right now, I'm "working" on the Colonial Marines armor. I'm trying a scratch build with real world items but its slow going. I'm looking for detail plans, something to show the dimensions but not really a template. Thanks for providing a resource for people to contribute and work from.

Hi! My name is Guillermo and we are a little group of Alien Makers, falling in love with the sexiest xenomorph of the universe...
and I love making costumes to wear, and so I am happy to have found this community!
I have a large interest in movie prop, from Aliens mainly.
