I saw the images of the finished costume and head piece and it looks amazing. I'm wanting to design myself an Alien (Xenomorph)/Human hybrid costume (you know Alien from the world of H.R. Giger).. and so I need to create a head piece shaped a lot like this, sort of a helmet that looks like the heads of the Aliens. Like this for reference, [link]
It wont be quite that long, but the important thing I know I have to keep in mind is to keep it light weight. It looks like you mostly used mat board/cardboard paper to shape yours. I might be using craft foam for mine. But my question is, how did you keep it from falling off your head? Did you attach a headband underneath or something else to get it to stay? Any tips on how to keep it weighted so it doesn't just fall off the back of my head? Thanks!
Could you possible link me the "base attachment" or, something simular, also with the hanging parts, is that just foam and modpodge? It looks quite thick. Thankyou^______^ Your cosplay inspired me to have a go~ But I have to make both sisters.. by may.. =_____=;;;
Cool, I saw this on the front page when I logged in.
I recall reading a bit about how you made it in the description of your costume but the fact it was made foam brought to mind it being calved from a block of it or something like that. Very interesting.
