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!

Greetings all! I'm a Aliens-obsessed fan for more decades now than I want to admit, and a costuming enthusiast (501st member) as well. When I was a kid, I worked at a cinema where the manager was as Aliens-obsessed as I am, and for six years we would discuss pretty much nothing but Aliens between movies. Life was good. :)

Hi from Spain, I have liked Alien since I saw it on the cinema long ago, and it has been one of my Hall of Fame movies since.

Best regards

Hi my name is Babs, I am from Canada. I love the Alien series and have been cosplaying Ferro. Being a drop ship pilot would be so bad ass.

Coming back after a Helluva break. Still in Undergrad. Still slogging together the last little bits and pieces to finish my costume completely.

Hope everything has been well and I *really* need to get with you guys at DragonCon instead of lone-wolfing it.

This year has just been a bit hectic and my CM gear is buried in a storage unit and I couldn't nab it before heading down.

Saw some of you here and there this year, since apparently the AL and the Colonial Fleet pre-pre-prestage in the Hilton lobby at the same time before the parade.

Waiting on camo and quick-release pistol-belt in the mail now, but this is what I've accumulated thus far:

Image
Pouches: Polish Army OD
Patches: eBay
Belt: Military web-belt (needs buckle painted black)
Boots: Repro Vietnam-style GI boots
Watch: Vintage 80's style "Talking Alarm Watch" ($9 from eBay until I can find an affordable Seiko Pulsemeter)
Belt Tool: Actual Edison Giocattoli Secret Agent cap-gun (needs modification of barrel, I think?)
M-41A: Airsoft

The camo I'm waiting on is Polish Desert BDU's, until I can afford proper BDU's from Spatcave or Chef. Then on to the M3 armor! :)

Update: Polish Desert BDU's and pistol-belt arrived today, being sent off to seamstress next week for necessary mods and sewing on patches. Will have tons of questions about BDU's soon.

Hello!
My name is Terry. I've actually been a member here since back in the days when the Aliens Legacy had been on EZboard, but I've never really posted much despite my tenure here. That being said, It's probably about time I [re]introduced myself.

I'm 38 years old and I live in Albuquerque, NM though I tend to go back and forth between Texas and New Mexico.
Ever since my childhood, the Alien movies have had such an impact on my life. Aliens was the first movie that terrified and thrilled me at the same time. An equal combination of a vicious, deadly menace against a platoon of Marines decked out in a futuristic, Vietnam style look from a 1980's point of view. I love the cinematography, the aesthetic of the sets and the realness of all the characters and their personalities, etc. Aliens always has and always will be my favorite Sci-Fi action movie!

Aside from my love of the movies, one of my hobbies that I love to do is create 1:8 dioramas and modify, customize and create my own action figures, particularly Colonial Marines.
I love NECA for making such an amazing line of Aliens, Predators and Marines.
I love the costuming and full size props that so many talented people make, but I just have never quite had the room to store them, so I tend to stick with 7-8" scale figures and models.

Anyway, I have always been a huge fan of the Aliens Legacy and over the years have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge, seen some amazing collections and props from so many amazing people on here and going forward, I hope to be a bit more active!
Cheers everyone! :delta:

Hi All!

I've been lurking for awhile so I thought I'd sign up and make it official. I've more or less completed my Indiana Jones gear (after about fourteen years...) so now I'm starting on recreating some other things I've had on my list for awhile. I've been a huge Aliens fan basically since I can remember, so I'm looking forward to working on some of that gear!

I'm going to be working on upgrading my Matrix/Snow Wolf pulse rifle over the next couple of months, so I'm sure you'll see me posting in that forum with some questions here and there.

Thanks all!

Jock
