Alien warrior creature costume from Aliens

Full alien warrior creature costume from James Cameron”s classic 1986 film Aliens. The design of this iconic costume was based on H.R Giger”s original and was fabricated by Stan Winston studios (Stan won the Best Visual Effects Oscar for his work). Approximately 12 full costumes were made for the film, and this one is constructed of 10 separate components (head, neck ring, ribs, hands, feet, tail, back “horns” amd jump suit). James Cameron did not want the performer”s range of movement to be inhibited, so the main jumpsuit was made from spandex with foam detailing glued to it. This particular jumpsuit has a name faintly visible on the inside of the costume; “Jason White”, who is a credited performer in the film. The neck ring is secured to the head by Velcro, and the two components simply slip over the performers head. The rear horns are held in place by Velcro. The tail secures to the performer via a buckle system around the waist and is flexible (it is sprung with long strips of plastic). The feet slip on and are secured by a zipper. A pair of original hands are included with the costume (the hands in the auction picture are replicas from the original mold, as the originals are in delicate condition). The rib section is a faithful replica; there are no known complete original examples as they were delicate and blown to pieces by squibs in the action scenes. The light-colored ligaments on the jaw (which were originally condoms) and inner jaw “teeth” are replicas for display purposes. Included in the auction is the display mannequin as pictured.Since its original purchase at a U.K. auction house in the 1990s, components of the costume have been replaced with better original examples. It”s believed that only three full costumes survive, and this is the finest example. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a classic piece of cinema history. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
