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!

Thanks! It was not part of the recent auction. I acquired it from the owner. The costume came from the Bonhams auction and is, I beleive, only one of two that have survived. This is excluding the pants framed in what looks to be displayed at a Planet Hollywood. I learned the rest were discarded. You can tell parts seem hand made and custom. Amazing to see the details in person.

I thought the jacket was just a white N2B parka?

I've long suspected (from that previous photo) that it was a custom reproduction.
The fabric, the cuffs, the zipper.. There's just something "not quite polished" about it. That and the rarity of white N2B jackets.

Oh right, they sure went to quite an effort then and no doubt explains why i have NEVER seen a white N2B for sale! :D

I've often been on the lookout too but they're like rocking horse shit.

I guess I'll have to add this set to the "make it myself list" as well... It just keeps getting longer.
